  1. These pictures go back three years, yet the moments are as present as if I were there today!

    Time is really playing hide and seek with me these days, I sincerely hope to find a bit again soon!

    A wonderful start into the week to all of you,

  2. Beautifully put, time is playing hide & seek with you... I know that feeling intimately & hope you find some soon again, too :)

    These photos are all beautiful! I love the one with the stairs... Stairs are so promising, for some reason - evocative!

    And the one with the persimmon for its exquisite orangeness :) I love it with the red leaves - gorgeous happy colours! & clicking through to the Tuscan Autumn sun... I want a holiday!! xx

  3. Yvonne,
    regarding your question about the figures in the previous post: I tried to answer, but could not find all the pertinent facts. True is that these are copper statues, the clock is part of a "bridge" that connects two buildings. Information about the Anker Clock abound, yet I could not figure out which historical figure I caught in those pictures. Hope to come up with more soon!

  4. Beautiful photos Merisi. Lots of memories. xx

  5. Yes, Jill, enough warm memories to tidy me over the grey days! :-)

  6. Jetzt habe ich auch Fernweh :-)

  7. What a lovely way to start my week, dear friend! Thank you, sugar! xoxoxo

  8. I need a siesta to go to these places in my dreams. Lovely details of life, as usual, Merisi. Thank you.

  9. Keep dreaming because the results are divine !!!

  12. SOMETIMES...
    I think you should live in Italy.

  13. PS
    WHERE is the Gelato????
    No Italy without gelato :(

  14. Thank you all! :-)

    © Carol,
    imagine, I forgot, literally, to get a gelato while in Florence two weeks ago. :-(

  15. Your posts always take on wonderful voyages. Italy is always an enchanting destination.

  16. My dream, my most beautiful dream would be to travel the Tuscany area of Italy and then Provence, France, yet I can no longer fly and that is a very long way from home, so your blog can help me visit the area for now~

  17. Such beautiful images -- wonderful how a picture can bring a memory to life.

  18. I could totally live in Italy. Bella.
