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.
