No, I haven't left my wonderful hubby for a Italian man. Though, if I could live anywhere in the world it would be Venice. Of course Steve would be be going with me and I bet I wouldn't have to twist his arm.
My new Italian love is this fabulous wall plaque that Gina of Gina Ceramics sent me. She hand paints the most gorgeous Italian ceramics in the Renaissance style. Gina was trained in Italy, Holland, Belgium and Germany and now lives and works in a small artist community in Utah. She also teaches and is offering a workshop this year on July 15-16 where you can learn to paint ceramics in the 500 year old Renaissance style. This workshop would be a dream come true for me and I would jump at the chance if the dates didn't conflict with our already planned vacation. I hope to attend one of the workshops at a later date.
This is the plaque Gina hand painted. Now you see why I am in love!
Thank you Gina for this wonderful gift!
Now that we have established my love for anything Italian I want to show you some of my collection. Some of the pieces are already packed up so I'll show you those at another time.
There is a reason I chose an Italian themed post today.
We are going to Italy for our 2ND honeymoon!!
Reservations are made and now we just have to be patient until August.
I'll be back later with details.
