I've always loved Venice
and the walls of Linderhof
are a testament to that fact.
An engraving bought at an Estate Sale in Kansas City
after we booked our trip
A "memento" of our trip,
bought before we went!
And it saved us bringing something home
Plus it had some age -- from the 60's or 70's we figure
It's one of a pair
Which hangs in the guest room
The same bridge
"in real life"!
The second engraving
And in "real life"
A very old etching
signed and dated
and I must admit that I liked the picture
but didn't realize that it was Venice
It, too, hangs in the guest room
(Perhaps this room should be renamed "The Venice Room"?
Not the same bridge but similar
And another engraving
This one hangs in the downstairs bath
And in Venice!
What fun it was to see these pictures
"come to life"
I didn't realize that we "collected" Venice pictures
But we did!
And did we bring any home?
No, although I did look at some that were for sale
by sidewalk artists but we really have run out of wall room!
And besides, the ones we have our old
vintage at best -- they're not old enough to be called "antique"
We had a great time in Venice
seeing the same scenes as our etchings and engravings
that grace the walls at Linderhof.
It's Wednesday and I'm joining Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.
So neat that you took photos of so many of the pictures you had collected in Venice. Amazing place. I hope to see it one day too.
Your etchings of Venice are exquisite, dear friend!!!
I'm thrilled you were able to travel to Italy this year and know you will always ponder those memories in your heart!
What fun! I expect most of us make collections without realising it. We just find things which we like, and before you know it, we have a collection. Your Venice collection is lovely. xoxo
I just used your oatmeal shortbread recipe. It is absolutely wonderful.
Shortbread is a favorite here but we limit it due to sugar. My favorite
recipe makes only twelve cookies at a time. This recipe not only is
delicious, it makes a nice pan full and used healthy oatmeal, thus soothing
my guilty conscience about cooking-eating. Thank you so much for posting
Venice is such a great city you can have fun even if you are there by yourself. If I was on business nearby I would always spend the weekend there and never be bored or lonely. I have some lovely prints of some of two of the palazzos in my dining room and absolutely adore them. As a matter of fact, I am staring at some water colors of flowers I also bought there.
I love the idea of collecting souvenirs before the trip! Cuts down on the luggage!
Venice is a very special and romantic place.
