firenze, ti amo!!!!!!

florence is a magical city! i love this time of year when it is crisp, cold and a bit grey. it seems to me to bring out the age of the city. i enjoy the wandering thru streets, shops, cafes to see where i end up. i seem to  always find something new. isn't that why traveling is so fantastic. delicious food, incredible wines, cool shoes (why can't i buy the 7 pairs i needed to have?), great gloves & yummy scents from santa maria novella. i especially love the almond soap.

so here are some images from last week......enjoy....


view from ponte vecchio

something about the moss on this cement wall....looks like a painting

the arno....can you feel the COLD???

ponte vecchio (i love the wooden window closures & doors)

yum yum yum

florentine paper and piles of tissue paper

happy accident....modern equipment, ancient architecture and nature all swarming above

ceiling art

a deck attached to a store on the arno. if i only had this attached to the back of the souchi store!
how about the color of paint trim matching the river?

tortellini stuffed with gorgonzola..............yum!

love the uniforms!!


the muscles!!! incredible up close to see all of the details and there are many at the accademia.

the beginning of so many wonderful creations!
