Yesterday Chia and I walked along the river in such nice, warm sunshine. Although I pass by this statue of David often (this is a replica- real one is inside the Accademia), I couldn’t resist taking a photo in the spring light.
And we are about to celebrate Chia’s 8th birthday! She was such a cute little puppy when we brought her home at 6 weeks.
She remains the most famous dog in Florence, doing her tricks for the tourists and locals alike.
This week my friend and I took a great cooking class here in town. As I waited to meet her, I found this gorgeous dress in the Valentino window. Incredible detail and so different! And so expensive! Fun to look though.
This evening I will be going outside of Florence to visit an elderly leather craftsman. His one of a kind, handmade bags are works of art, and I hope to bring at least a dozen back to Florence with me to show my clients. I am sure that I will keep one for myself as well….. Will post photos next week!
