Ciao... it's libby, from Italy.
We were trying to get a photo to load, trust me that there are a lot we will post later, but I did get a spare minute on the hotel computer to post it. suffice it to say that we are maximizing our time in Florence (leaving for Venice tomorrow!) having 2-3 hour dinners, eating every truffle dish we can find, absorbing Tuscan food, wine, and countryside and getting as much art in as possible.
We did get to visit the Textile Studio where I first learned how to paint on silk... the morning of our visit, it hit me that had I not taken that class in Florence 12 years ago, I would never have become a textile designer, or a jewelry designer or who I am now. It made the visit to the studio that much more profound and precious to me. I can't wait to share more about it!
I hope you are enjoying the blog... I can't wait to have the time to pore over the fun Italy themed entries when I get home - I'll take a peek tonight, but I am saving the bulk of the entries as part of my own "re-entry" process, back into life at home.
see you all later!
