August Break # 9

I love color.
Especially bold colors.
That's why I love the Mediterranean area; they use lots of happy color.
When I saw these boats in the port of Viareggio, Italy, they painted a smile on my face.
And just put me in a really good mood.
I hope they make you smile, too.

Dear Carola-I am SO jealous that you were in Italy!!! I think I may have been Italian in a former life...seriously! I love EVERYTHING Italian...from the art to the music to the oldness to...And don't you just ADORE A. Bocelli?? He is my all time fave artist to listen to while I paint! i don't even understand the words but there is so much emotion and poetry in his music! Thanks for leaving your Simple Things list...there are so many amazing things everyone wrote...I am going to have to expand my list to include them!! xxx And yes, your pic instantly put a smile on my face!!

HI Carola:
Thanks for stopping by and leaving the nice comment. I've been busy with my daughter's wedding for the last past months so my blog is really out of date. It was a success and now I can get back to my creative life.
I love your photographs. You are very talented. I have always wanted to travel to Europe.
Hopefully some day I will get there.
bye for now and I look forward to seeing more of your lovely pictures.

Yes, they did make me smile! I can't figure out exactly what it is that gives them that foreign look, but they definitely scream "Mediterranean"!

Again, I'm in love with your photography. I love seeing the world thru your eyes. As far as the pillows...Yes, I have some orange and saw some lovely orange fabrics lately that I would love to pick up. They are available on Etsy. If you order more than 1, I will refund you the amount you save from the August sale. I hope that helps! Take care, Carrie

I love this photo! I've wanted to go to Italy FOREVER. I keep trying to convince my hubby to take a position in ITALY for a year but unlike me he has no desire to live overseas :(. I'm going to keep working on him to at least visit Italy someday.

Like you I love color too. I want to bring more of it into my life. It just makes my heart sing. That's one of the reasons I LOVE your photography & blog!
