Christmas Time Harrod's of London

Harrod's Dept. Store in London always a designer's dream.

The Christmas atmosphere is already in full swing in London! Shop windows are glittering with holiday decorations, the Christmas lights along Oxford Street and Regent Street have been switched on and ice skating rinks are open at some of the city’s most iconic spots. London is absolutely festive during the holidays, and it’s easy to get into the Christmas spirit while out sightseeing and shopping. If you’re traveling to London now through Christmas and New Year’s, there is so much to see and do during your visit. Hit the big name shopping streets and enjoy the lights, caroling and holiday charms. Take a whirl around Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park or go ice skating at the Tower of London. New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day in London are a blast!                                    (Daily Mail Photos)

Godfather's House for Sale

The Staten Island home of the infamous Corleone (Godfather) family is currently up for sale for a mere $2.9 million.  I took my (Italian) mom to the movie the first weekend it premiered in Hollywood as a young student.  We must have seen it 20 times since that date.  Who ever gets tired of the movie?  The fashions and the actors were superb.  As for the house, its' had some remodeling in the kitchen for a contemporary theme.  The Corleone compound address is 110 Longfellow Ave.
See the kitchen...

Shades of Italy


I came across a colorful article in Italy Mag featuring the top ten colour shades of Italy from Naples Yellow to Schiaparelli pink, the famous fashion designer I studied in art school.  Naples yellow includes various shades of yellow that artists used in painting.                                                              
See more of earth-rich Sienna, the most widely used pigment of the Master artists; Venetian Red, Celeste Blue and more popular, inspiring colors of Italy here...
