It's always hard coming back to reality, and I'm feeling very behind on work, laundry, emails, life. And it's not any easier coming home with a bad cold. I'm blaming airplane air. But, enough whining, I have to remember how incredibly lucky I was to enjoy the beauty of Italian history and culture for a little over a week. And a big thank you to for Rene from Cottage and Vine, Fran from Green Street, and Erica from Decorica for guest posting here while I was away! I really enjoyed their visits and see from your comments that you all did too. And I can't wait to catch up on all my blog reading. There wasn't much I missed while I was away, but I did miss that!
So, back to the vacation. I took a ton of pictures, and over the next few days I want to share some of my favorites for my fellow design-lovers.
First, beautiful doors. The work that went into these beauties amazes me. And they are a dime a dozen throughout Italy, but especially Tuscany. As a photographic subject, they've been done, but for me they never get tired.
The artistry that went into making these, by hand, with such care and attention, is so impressive. Even the most simple doors still show such skill. And the history. Many of these doors have certainly been used for hundreds of years. And I love that they're still in use and on display, another gorgeous entrance around every corner. Which is your favorite?
