Lovely pics as usual Yvonne. We’ve booked to go in November ( Salute Festival) with 2 friends.Yoo-hoo. Self-catering for the first time in 34 years! So cheap! Flights £101 each. Apartment £92 each for the week. Can’t believe it.
Oh, Andrew, I’m really pleased for you. Self-catering is the way to go. Enjoy Venice, and Salute. 🙂
Hi Yvonne – I love this workshop, I took some photos in December but the light was not good. These give the lamps a really jewel like quality – thanks. Jo
The winter light, or lack of it, can surely make a difference to our photos. Some days, I was so disappointed in the results.
It was just above the door, as we came in from outside. We were probably a) too cold, or b) gabbing too much to notice!
Probably …. have you caught up with this weeks Venice 24/7 ? Very good viewing .. behind the scenes for the “Angel Flight”
I checked this morning, the new episode hadn’t been loaded yet. It’s really good to see what happens in ordinary Venice, eh?
lovely Yvonne .. I never saw these or…. noticed the one in your apartment !
I agree, Mary! Shed that darn house that doesn’t fit the cesendello (thanks for the correct word), and find one that deserves it!
Looking at these reminds me that I bought a wonderful glass lamp (cesendello) from my favourite glass shop Genninger on one of our first ever visits. It was hideously expensive – particularly by the time it got shipped home- but every day I looked at it hanging in our hallway and was so glad that I had. It was my own very beautiful piece of beautiful Venetian craftsmanship.
We sold that house, and took it with us – but it’s sadly still sitting in its own special box as I’ve nowhere to hang it in our new house. Maybe we should move!
Yes, they’re a touch fragile! But, pretty.
They’re so lovely. I bought some glass rings in Venice. They were beautiful, but broke eventually.
They’re so very exquisite, very tempting. There was one in the entry to my apartment, I liked that.
Added to my list! Wish I could afford to buy a mini version for my home.
Sigh….one more lovely thing added to my “Don’t forget to see” list! Yvonne, at this rate I’ll hardly have time to sleep or eat during my way too short visit.
You’ll have to negotiate a longer stay, Barb, that’s all there is to it. And, I’m willing to bet you’ll find some new stuff!
You’ve given me my early morning chuckle Susie. What would we know about spritz, anyhow? 🙂
Those lamps were outside a shop near Fondamenta Nove.
Hee hee. Enough to know the difference between Aperol, Select and Campari along with their appropriate garnishes I would wager!
You’ve got that right, Susie. And, aren’t those potato chips they serve, excellent! Probably as cheap as, well, chips!
When I saw the title of this post, I immediately thought the photos would be of spritzes! How déclassé of me.
Those glass pieces are beautiful aren’t they?
