Autumn In Rome, Italy.

Autumn In Rome, Italy.
Persimmons and Cupolas.
Church bells ringing in your ears awaiting the final hour.
The sun turns steeples and domes from cream-cracked marble to a slow-burn deep gold.
Everything shines in this orange hour, a last flash in the pan, you want this fire and this flame, you want the flush and the heat before stillness and sleep… and indigo creeps in and this gold turns orange, turns pink, … turning into navy and finally violet skies before disappearing into black velvet.
The shadows of the city reappear out of the cracks and crevices and pockets like Victorian roustabouts on a silent crawl looking for trouble, somewhere, anywhere, always, trouble waves them over since time immemorial.
The outline of the city is a different joy to behold in the evening.
Families make way for the lovers under the gas and electric lamps.
The Eternal City never feels the same way twice in a night where life is always on the cusp of being tasted, of being taken. Roma feels like ten centuries in one burst, a slow, deep, long kiss before dying.

flower crowns in autumn

    Flower crowns keep getting prettier. They are trendy right now, but floral crowns and flowers in our hair is a classic look which has always gone beyond trends. I have always been in love with the magical, dreamy, feminine look of flower crowns for events or just for a touch of romance in your life. I’m an artist and I make everything by hand. My love of art and aesthetics and flowers and nature has come full circle. Floral Crowns for fun and beauty or an outdoor music festival or Renaissance Faire … or a wedding or bridal shower or engagement … for your own instagram or photo shoots … or a gift as a whim. I love flowers & I want to share them with you. (I’ll be hand wrapping vintage paper & decorations and enclosing Art & Italy photo prints, too. Shipping Worldwide. Click link for more info. XO
