Venetian finds.....





I found a wonderful little antique shop in Dorsoduro....Antichita Da Canal.
The little framed hearts caught my eye.
The shopkeeper tried to explain to me in Italian that the hearts in boxes were blessings sent to the Virgin Mary asking for favors. I thought that Paul could use a FAVOR or two.
If anyone has more info to add....please let me know.

I also found a stack of postcards and envelopes....Giuseppi Rolla was really prolific.
A touch of lace from a century or two ago....
I spent hours sorting and daydreaming.......
