I took this photo from our hotel balcony in Amalfi. What a view, eh? I love how towers and castles spur the imagination...it's impossible to look at them without a sense of wonder. (Yes, I added the cheesy flutter of hearts...but I had to for the sake of my rhyme, Torre Amore.) The coolest bit about this is that the tower is now a restaurant!

Happy Friday!

Today's color inspiration comes from a window that caught my eye in Venice. Moorish influence on Venetian Gothic architecture can be seen throughout the city, namely in the shape of arches like this one. I love the little plants peeking through the stonework, too.

Just for fun, I'm throwing in The Orders of Venetian Arches by John Ruskin (1853, Vol. 2 of The Stones of Venice) so you can play "Find That Arch." Happy Friday!
