At first I thought it was a Greek-inspired theme, the capture of door handles and locks. But my latest obsession continued in Scotland. I have a weakness for doors, that is nothing new. Lately that interest has been specifically focused on colorful, old doors with interesting keyholes or locks. This one is from a church in Inverness, and isn’t it cool how you can see the architectural element brought through to the door detail? I also liked how the dustiness reflects the light differently, highlighting the form of the details.
Thank you so much for the many comments on yesterday’s post. It is good to know that being real and true to my heart resonates with other people. I appreciated all of the encouragement and support for my transition back to the US. There is truly a wealth of generosity and positive support to be found here on the internet. I am always surprised when I hear people say that things like blogs, Facebook, twitter, etc. are a waste of time. I guess they can be, but they can also be a source of genuine connection and I love that.
As I start sorting things into piles for my move (what to ship, what to give away, what to take on the flight, etc.), I’ve realized that I have some more things to give away, and time is running short. So today I’m launching my LAST giveaway from Italy. Of course I’ll do more in the future, but this will be your last opportunity to get mail from me in Italy.
I’m giving away four items and there will be four different winners! I have a lens cleaning cloth printed with the mosaics from Ravenna (great for glasses or camera lenses), two sets of note cards from Florence, and a set of 5 random postcards of my images that I happen to have left (time to order more!).
You can have up to three entries:
1. Just leave a comment and say hi!
2. If you are a newsletter subscriber, leave a separate comment. (The newsletter is coming out tomorrow with some sneak peek info on my upcoming classes. Why not subscribe today? The form is on the left sidebar of the blog.)
3. If you follow me anywhere, leave a separate comment. By follow I mean through google, facebook, twitter, networked blogs, or rss feed.
Please leave separate comments for each entry. I’m going to do a random drawing based on the total number of comments, so if you write it all in one comment you will still only have one entry.
You can leave comments through around 9pm PST Monday, June 13. I’ll pick the winners on Tuesday morning when I wake up. Please make sure there is a way for me to contact you if you win – either a link back to a website, email, your name (if I know you personally), something along those lines. If I can’t figure out how to contact you, I’ll just re-draw for your item.
[Update: Giveaway has closed. See Tuesday’s post for the winners!]
Along with this giveaway, I just want to give a public thank you to my husband Patrick, for all his help with these giveaways since I’ve started them. He’s the one that goes to the post office and waits in line to mail them while I’m working my day job. Here in Italy, this can sometimes take hours or even multiple trips to get things mailed. If you’ve ever won anything or received mail from me, he’s had a part in mailing it. If you want to visit his blog and leave a note of thanks, he would love it.
Enjoy your weekend!
