Spring is my favorite time of year to explore and discover interesting and intriguing places. Since joining the ranks of the unemployed, travel is not an option for now. So I took a mental journey and revisited this mysterious island, Sicilia. One of my favorite cities was Caltagirone, an ancient classic city known for its ceramics. (And the best canoli too.)

Sharing inspiration!

I love pretty sidewalks like this one in a San Francisco neighborhood, and I'm continually inspired by gardens filled with water cannas, succulents and doves in nearby Filoli, just a "few of my favorite things."

Spring . . . . not quite!

Spring has not yet sprung in the bay area and I've been reminiscing of my visit to Holland and Belgium in the Spring 2007. These lovely blooms in Keukenhof Gardens seemed to pose for this picture, while Bruges with its sleepy canals, old chuches and religious convents, conveyed a fairytale world.
