Two new ways to keep Tuscany and Florence in your heart


Picture postcard of Florence ItalyWhen I am being a tourist, thus totally immerging myself in the culture,I love to find new ways to remind myself of the adventure once I am home and back the the same ol’ same ol’. One of my new favorite things to collect are images of the town, countryside or city – for example water colors or ink drawings done by one of the local artists.
Hanging out in Florence I have found something even just a bit different, even if a little more pricey.
Following a tradition that has been passed down from family to family since the late 1500’s – these pietre dure mosaics are indeed a memorable way to remember my travels around the city center of Florence.
