Venerdi in Venice: Flirting with Lilac Frills

{Lilac Frills in Venice : ink pen, pencil, watercolour illustration by Shell-Sherree}

Ciao!  Patience is a virtue ~ and Saints preserve us, thank heavens I have some very virtuous Venice-loving souls amongst you. {Bless your fuzzy loyal hearts!} 

It's a glorious day for lilac frills and the clink of glasses lending a splish-splash of prosecco to echo the lapping canal below.  Let us twirl.  And on that note ...

Happy Venerdi in Venice to you!

  3. I have a dress of that very same colour, but realise now that my Headgear has been All Wrong. What a delicately lovely picture.

  4. Molto molto bella, cara Shell (et mille grazie per Venezia). You took your inspiration and upped it a notch with that beautiful shade of lavender. I can see some romantic chap gliding up the Grand Canal in a boat to serenade her. Sigh.

    1. Grazie, cara Alexa ~ and goodness me, lands sakes ~ what was I thinking?! Goes to show how long it's been since we had a wander in Venice. I neglected one of our usual accompaniments. Perhaps we can imagine this romantic chap doing the serenading ... ;)

  5. Evviva, Venezia è tornata! It's been a long time between proseccos, but the wait was worth it, cara Shell. Grazie di cuore.

    PS On my next trip to Italy, it's going to be 2/3 in Florence, 1/3 Venice. Fickle, unfaithful, etc. Baci, bella.

    1. You're most welcome, dear Y. You could have knocked me over with a feather at your 2/3 1/3 equation for your next trip. Does this mean I need to put Florentine Friday into the mix? Baci back at you, bella.

  6. You have been missed. I guess I need to play Chris Botti more often as I was playing over the weekend and thought of you cara Shell.
    It will be a while until I'm back in Venezia so this helps quench my thirst for all things Venetian.
    Ciao, ciao, Bella....baci e baci,
    Michelle

    1. So that's what it was ... Chris Botti's magnetism does work a charm on me, cara Michelle. :) Thank you, bella ~ always lovely to see you. Baci e abbracci.

  7. Simply lovely! I agree with the others that she will soon be serenaded by a handsome stranger....
    And looks like Kitty is enjoying herself, too. Macie approves ;)

    1. I suspect there's a grasshopper lurking in those flowers for our kitty, dear Ms M. Macie might approve of the fun that would entail, too.
