Six - Buying This

At the top of the Spanish Steps in Rome.

The one thing we both desperately wanted to find while in Italy was an oil painting, and we splurged on this one. We managed to talk the artist down over 240 Euro, which he wasn't too thrilled about. In fact, he seemed quite disgruntled as he packed up our purchase for us. Oh well, we were happy, that's for sure.

Originally, we wanted to find an impressionist piece because that is our favorite style, but this captured the Tuscan countryside so perfectly that we fell in complete love with it. It's something like 80 cm by 60 cm . . . I can't remember, but it's beautiful and I can't wait to have it framed!


  1. I love it too!
    I seriously want to buy and frame that photo that Chad took.
    In Venice, with the gondolas, and the window boxes.
    Yup, love it!

  2. It is BEAUTIFUL! I am quite jealous actually, I would love to have something like that in our home. Your trip sounds amazing. Oh and I love your new blog design!

  3. I missed the Spanish steps in Rome and I so wanted to go there! I'm jealous!

    Hey there! I've been enjoying your posts, but not taking time to comment as my week has been one I hope to put behind me quickly. But this is my kind of souvenir! Gorgeous and something you'll treasure always. I am so jealous of your trip, but if we couldn't be the ones to go, I'm so glad you and Chad had the opportunity;)

    See ya Sunday,
