San Miniato al Monte is directly above Piazza Michelangelo & is one of #Pierotucci ‘s special spots to watch over #Florence. Just look at the view.
after reading about the vintage inspired apparel and colors covering fashion designers such as Gucci, Missoni and others we felt inspired to look through our leather collection and to create a deep dark brown selection. In Italian this color is known as testa di moro, and when seen in leather , since it is so close to a natural shade it comes in varying depths of intensity.

I am looking to do some advertising for Pierotucci, Leather Factory and I have two possible images to use. Have a look, and let me know which one calls your attention most – and what does it communicate to you.
I appreciate your help!
The first image centers on the fact that all of our products are handmade right here in Florence Italy – what I don’t like is that it doesn’t really show our full range of products.
The second pulls in a Florence skyline and a selection of our products, but I am not sure it really communicates that we hand make everything right here in Italy.
and not only in my backyard, but also in fashion. This afternoon for lunch I jumped in my car, dodged all the incredibly slow drivers and made a bee-line for my own private oasis . . . my garden. I munched down on some rather bland soup (the things we do for bathing suit season) and then moved myself outside to enjoy the signs of spring.
The first of which are the purple iris flowers that are blooming around the front border of my yard. In Italian these are called gigli (one of those very difficult words to pronounce) and in the Florence area tradition wants them to be purple – the official Florentine color FORZA VIOLA!!) They also come in yellow and white, but since I live with a die hard Fiorentine man, they had to be ALL purple. Here are the first courageous blossoms.
Then there is my pear tree, just a wee little thing but with tons of flowers . . . all right tons maybe an exaggeration, but you can’t help but hoping that this years crop will exceed last years (1 pear). This creamy white bloom reminds me of one of the new FORTUNATA handbags that just arrived in a limited Edition series.
If you look real hard – and with maybe a bit of imagination – you can see my blossoming rosemary bush. This makes the best ever roast potatoes. This plant is always admired by my envious neighbors because it is incredibly old and very prosperous. The blooms have a faint lilac color, reminiscent of the Chanel inspired handbag by Cosci.
Then I have a cherry tree, which is just beginning to show its flowers – the thing about this cherry tree is that it looks adorable, has so many lovely flowers and even looks like it is going to stun us with a huge harvest only to end the season with 10 (yes, you can count them on one hand 10) cherries and even those are hard to come by if the ravens and sparrows have gotten up earlier than you.
I have two apricot trees, one is a lovely, sweet, docile domestic tree that has light pink flowers (about two weeks ago) and large plump apricots – its only a baby so its production is a little limited. Then I have a wild apricot tree that produces flaming pink flowers, grows like crazy entwining itself in the fencing for the dog area and producing a ton of very small but sweet apricots – perfect for making jam and salsa.
I also have a fig tree, which doesn’t have any flowers – and at the moment it doesn’t even have any leaves. This tree always has fruit that becomes ripe as I am away for vacation – missing out on that delicious sweet delights.
RE Blog from our guest blogger:
You know its carnevale in Florence when every time you wander around the city center you find tiny pieces of colored confetti scattered in the streets.
The Italians throw these brightly colored streamers and little pieces of wrapped candy in the crowds from the colorful, playful floats that they painstakingly prepare. Though many might think that this is just a type of Halloween in February they would be mistaken, because the outfits that are selected normally have nothing to do with warding off the evil spirits as in the tradition for All Hallow’s Eve. In fact when you mention Carnival, the image of scantily dressed Brazilians come to mind or maybe even the artistic and mysterious figures from Venice. However, for many regions it is simply a moment where the young and old are encouraged to have fun, laugh and be playful behind the anonymity of a mask.
We are very happy to welcome our Guest Blogger: Print and Pattern, a blog that was born as a project to discuss everything related to art, focusing on fashion, cinema and photography. since we opened the site in September, we had a great reception and we are very grateful.
