I heard that the first snow fell in Florence this morning, long before I stirred to consciousness. Disappointment.
This weekend the Italian Holy-days begin, so the city will spring back to life after a month long slumber. I hope this reflects in my mood. Snow looks fabulous in pictures, but its a painful season in the city. I dream of a country villa with a roaring fireplace and hot mulled wine, but its all frost bite out, damp and steamy in...
My bf's mum has been hard at work knitting me sweaters, booties, beanies and this awesome fluffy white & blue scarf. The necklace I bought from a small accessories boutique in Florence for under 20euro - it came with matching earrings. But its the umbrella that steals the show. Sheltering me from the Tuscan rain, with prints of famous Tuscany sites, in Toscana! Kitsch at its finest. The word is a loan word from the German word meaning "worthless." but I think it's priceless!
