wandering tuscany via polaroids

June 23, 2009

today jenifer altman opens the ‘doors’ of her etsy shop la dulce luce {it means ‘the sweet light’ – what a fitting name for italy, right?}. couldn’t you just get lost in her polaroids? i’m considering buying her entire shop and plastering the prints all over my office so that i can spend my days imagining that i’m working in the most romantic and beautiful country in the world… le sigh.

although i would have fallen in love with these photos any day of the week, i am particularly obsessed with them at the moment because i just started reading eat pray love by the charming author elizabeth gilbert… and italy is the current setting. although i have always wanted to see italy with my own travel hungry eyes, now i’m starting to feel it with a life and death sort of urgency!

and because i’m not ready to let go of italy just yet, here’s an excerpt from her book about the origin of the italian language {a completely fascinating tidbit that everyone should have tucked in their back pocket}:
