Oh. My. Gawd.
I'd have to leave my credit card home.

Too wonderful.

No time to read back posts I've missed but I will over the weekend.

No way am I taking my kids in that shop! My pet bull would be easier to manage.

I was nervous in those shops. Hugged myself and clutched my handbag ever closer!

Pixie said...

I want to live in that shop!!! LOL

The village beyond the hill
is covered in sky
the ancient homes, squeezed between the stones
of the winding lanes
have the odor of old fables
and the taste of bread.
Vines extend their shoots up to the roofs
hot from the summer sun
with the promise of fruit
and the slim shapes of the cypresses
shine on old coats-of-arms
and project shadows
of daytime ghosts
on the sandstone.
The centuries old village strains its ears
for the faraway sounds of the azure blue
that snaps in the wind,
and the olive trees that descend compactly
the graded slopes
towards the sea of time,
adore the sun.

Lanes having the odor of old fables and the taste of bread...God, that line just is wonderful

If you have any inclination towards going to Tuscany, better go sooner rather than later. It is awash with cranes and development and soon will disappear under condos, condos, condos.
