On Sunday we headed for Arezzo and its monthly fleamarket to shop for bits and pieces to include in our artwork. It was our only really cold day but we hardly felt it for the thrill of the hunt. If only I’d had more room in my luggage to tote all these goodies home.

I nearly fell down a steep flight of stairs so busy was I gawking and snapping pictures. Found a few treasures for my book project and a vintage fur collar to jazz up a sweater or jacket. I resisted the expensive hat blocks this time but Nina scored a really good one and she is my size. Perhaps we can work a deal.

Scenes from Life is Beautiful were shot here in Arezzo.

So glad you are taking us along via blog! Those hat blocks in the last picture...oh my.
Ouch-ouch- ouch awful to have to leave them behind.
I'll be tuning in to see the rest of the trip!
