When the moon hits your eye
Like a big-a pizza pie
That's amore

What could be more amore than a full moon over Venezia? Sometimes, without plot or plan, the Universe aligns perfectly. Our only responsiblity in that moment is to drink deeply from it's beauty and abundance.

The expected: these Italian coffee bean sacks make an eye catching display.

The unexpected:

Some of my fondest moments are being out in the world wondering around, expecting the unexpected, and viola, there it is! The most ordinary use of something so common juxtaposed with fine linens, wools and silks becomes extraordinary. Such are these stunning window displays recently seen while on holiday in Venezia.

Unique, one of a kind, 16" burlap pillow printed on both sides with Latin phrases. Side one is the image of a beautiful angel reaching towards the heavens. Imprinted with "Divinitus" which translates to "devine influence". Side two, the timless and familiar Latin phrase, "Carpe Diem" (Seize the Day) is imposed over an antique time piece. The pillow is made from two hues of natural burlap with a feather and down insert.
