Ciao Bella - you are in Venice, how wonderful. Venice reminded me of a slightly drunken sailor, lurching this way and that, oblivious to drowning in his own briny brew. It is a place of impossible contours and I found it spell binding. I wish I had had your little peek behind the scenes before I went there...
have fun...Peg

That first shot reminds me how much I love draperies and chandeliers...the modernist in me can't beleive it!

Venice looks like it would make me cry.

Take care my friend,
See you soon.
