I hear ya... And Venice sounds mighty nice about now!
Hey, glad you stopped by! I stop by to see you too, but don't always leave a comment.Your house is really coming along SO great. That bust came from a great store in ATL called House Parts (an architectural store). I used to visit their warehouse regularly & hit the clearance room where they had lots of imperfect things for a steal. She came from that clearance room and I can't even remember how much she was, but I'd say around $20 or so. You can visit them here, I did a quick look on the catalog pages, but didn't find her on there. I have no idea what she is called, but you may be able to call & ask them about any of their female statues. The shop is great to visit in person. It's one of my fave places to shop & I miss it the most in moving away from ATL. They do plaster, resin, concrete things. Lots of eye candy. http://houseparts.com/company.php
I am so jealous you went to Italy for your honeymoon. We went to DC. No fun. I'd take just being in the faux-Venice inside the Venetian Hotel in Vegas right about now.
I'm so with you on that one. God willing, the hubs and I will be there next year...For now, thanks for the day dreamy image :)
I too was in Venice for my honeymoon, but in 2004.
I can't believe all the places you have traveled. Has there ever been a place that you did not like? MB
I was in Venice last October...lovely! (Had the best hot chocolate I've ever tasted there, divine.)
I have those days quite often...although I'm chained to a 4 month old (not that I'm complaining). Venice is always on my daydream list. Actually, the NON tourist parts of Venice...I thought all of the touristy areas sucked due to the hourds of people everywhere, but the quiet areas were magical.
I've been feeling like you lately. I need a break pronto, Barcelona is always on my top places to visit but Venice will be lovely as well.
I want to paint that - NOW!
I saw your question about Southern Hospitality's bust (insert hee hee here) and looked up a company I have bookmarked....I'm sure that the prices are way WAY higher than $20 but thought you might want to take a look anyway...I'd love the Thalia bust but it's p.r.i.c.e.y.http://www.allfauxmarblestatues.com/site/716171/product/2083
I understand that. I've had that kind of week.
Oh gosh, I had one of those days, too! I would've loved to have been ANYWHERE but work!
