OH DEAREST...don't get me started now on a GREEK ISLAND PARTY! Imagine the fun? Since I was a child, I dreamed of going to Greece on my honeymoon! I WILL GET THERE ONE DAY! Meanwhile, your postcardesque photography will take me sailing away to a land of enchantment. Be well, Anita

Giulia said...

You & me both, Julie. Little Julie loves to hear stories about the Greek isles. She'd be very happy to sit in a basket on a terrace in Santorini where I used to go...sigh.

I keep telling her she needs to get some sort of work. She'd be a great "ad cat."

Cheers...

Hey Julie,
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Glad you saw my boatshed in ACS. Believe me, space is definitely a problem! I love John Derian too - I went to his shop in Manhattan and he was there but I couldn't speak to him due to nerves!

Michael Mattison said...

Julie, those old wooden buildings dangling over the harbor in the Little Venice section of Mykonos make for a much-photographed motif -- but I'm sure I've ever seen a more atmospheric, artful rendering than with your photo here!
Ah, nice reminder that my own trip ther is coming up shortly -- I've become a complete chronic offender when it comes to the Cyclades!
All the best,
Michael

mermaid gallery said...
