I Miss Italy

My Favorite view of Roma from the Castle St. Angelo

Bob and I are getting ready for the Blade show.  Although he doesn't have a table, he's got orders to deliver.  I will be at Al and Val Elishewitz's table.  So I am getting lots of skulls ready, as well as one of a kind pieces from knife scraps.  This weekend I will be in Denver for Ethan's birthday.  The calendar is full, so to speak. 

She really went "green" in Milano.

It's been six months since we were in Roma and Milano.  About this time every year, I start to long for Italy.  It's really my second home, and my where my heart would really love to live.  I don't have an ounce of Italian blood in me.  My ancestors probably never crossed the border from their British Isles.
Bob guesses some really small people drive this car.

I haven't figured out a way to go and live in the apartment for months (summer preferably).  I could teach art again, or finish my book, or find some volunteer work.  But Buddy and the cats couldn't be with me.  I couldn't bare that.  So I am here and missing my Roma.  I could open a shop like the one below.  But I'm not a retail gal.

When I am looking for photos of my jewelry, I run into the photos of Italy.  I have to look at them!  I am reminded of the wonderful times, and friends we have there.  November is half a year away.  That seems too far.  Thought you might enjoy a few pictures as well.

Thanks for reading. I'm still amazed that you do!
