I have just spent 8 days being inspired by the beauty of Italy! It is such a wonderful and colorful country.
The Amazing Vatican
St. Peters Basilica
The pinecone came from ancient Rome, and was moved to the Vatican to decorate this courtyard…how amazing is this sculpture?
St. Peter’s Square was truly awe inspiring.
A young Mary holding Jesus after he was crucified.
This is the bathtub of one of the emperors
View from one of the hills of Rome…we went to a few…maybe Aventine?
Our neighborhood fruit and vegetable stand!
The Pantheon…look at the light…there is no electricity in this building
My favorite building in Rome, Vittorio Emanuele II monument.
The sculptures in Rome are incredible!
A Basilica, one of many we saw and loved…I adore the molding, and the color in the paintings.
The stories are told in stone in Rome, this is the Arch of Constantine.
Look at the layers of decorative work, my poor carpenters will be complaining about my molding specifications from now on!
A wonderful street in our neighborhood
Our terrace…lovely and peaceful.
I love the details…look beautiful hardware to hold shutters open.

If you want to be inspired by design, art, sculpture or history, Italy, specifically Rome is the place to go. I hope you will go if you have not been…it is worth the trip!
