or was it down this street?
Tim and Sandra managed to find their way back to
Signor Fiore's art studio where they fell in love with this 8 foot painting. The bold colors and the red roof tiled houses along the sea just reminded them of this pretty little town and they "had to have it"! All 8 feet of it!
This is the artist, Fiore, posing with Sandra in his studio with a huge rifle on his arm .... (no idea why)... but he was very proud that day!
There was no back-up plan................It made it!
My treasures came from the town of Caltogirone - famous for it's ceramics or "majolica".
The highlight in the center of town are the Scala di Santa Maria de Monte ~ a flight of 142 steps covered with enameled ceramic tiles.....
whew! We made it! Oh wait, another ceramic shop!
How cute are these? They hang on the wall - hmmmm,
perfect for....... maybe a beach condo!
And from every curve in the road...
Mt. Etna was watching over us!
