Just because

Just because you’re nice folks, and I see some things around Venice that defy classification, and I want you to see them!

Well, it seems Florence doesn’t have the monopoly on Della Robbia pieces. Or, Della Robbia lookalikes. This was near the Chiesa San Zaccaria.


I don’t think this cat in the pet shop is for sale. Mind you, I didn’t stop to ask.


How’s this for elegance?


Ancient stone, modern weeds.


What good advice!


Just because I have to include some red.


Aha! I teeny-tiny pissota! Newish readers can find out about these here: public-service-notice


And, an image of proper Venetian rowing, with Babbi Natale.

  1. A nice collection of interesting things, Yvonne. That cat looks very comfortable. I’m sure he belongs. And more rowing Santas – you’ve made my day.

  2. Being a Doctor Who fan, I prefer to say “I think inside the Box because it’s bigger on the inside.” 🙂

    Lovely collection of photos. (Especially the rowing. I keep thinking – I wonder if I could manage that type of rowing….?)

    Nice collection of photos, Y! I am particularly fond of the cat photo! Speaking of cats, how is your feline neighbor?

  9. Lovely compilation, my friend.
    I think unless that pissota is lower than it looks it would not deter short men.
