The stories of my life on a little island in the middle of the Mediterranean sea ... and my occasional adventures beyond these shores.

Fabulous Fridays: Wacky Birds

My in-laws will be visiting from the US next week and I have been rather busy cleaning and de-cluttering the house. So I did not have much time to snoop and browse around on the Internet to find something fun to share with you. I decided I would cheat a little this week and talk about something that I came across a couple of years ago. We were on holiday in Tuscany and  happened to visit the beautiful, medieval town of  Lucca on the very weekend that they were having an antiques fair. It was a joy wandering around and looking at the pretty items for sale. I remember there were several things that I would gladly have brought back with me (except that low-cost airlines are very stingy with their baggage allowance). So I only bought a few pieces of jewellery (that’s always better than nothingWinking smile). But I still bemoan the fact that I left these little cuties in Lucca. I would have loved to bring them home with me.

What do you think? Aren’t they just wacky wearing those chunky boots? I am not sure whether they were antiques or not but I don’t really care. I have tried to find something similar both in the stores here and on the internet but with no luck. Sigh. Next time, if there will ever be a next time, I will definitely figure a way of getting them home.
I just wanted to let you all know that my posts and visits in the next 3 weeks may be rather erratic since I will be busy with family. But I will be back as usual in the beginning of June.
