I love these dreamy Polaroids of Italy. Have you seen or read Enchanted April? It's a delightful mid-winter escape. During college, I traveled around Italy studying art history and discovered that it's one of my favorite places in the world. I also discovered that, while I love museums, I'd rather spend my time wandering through poppy fields and photographing window boxes with geraniums in them.
i really long to go to italy and envy your time there. i love the polaroids.
i have the movie ‘enchanted april’ on vcr tape and a vintage copy of the book. i just love the story and think i’ll watch it again this weekend.
have you seen ‘all passion spent’ by vita sackville-west? it’s based in england, but so charming. i think you’d love it.
and that’s why we all heart you so much – dreamy polaroids and italian discoveries 🙂
These are magical. I studied art history in Italy too and loved every minute.
Beautiful shots! Cool that you got to study there, how dreamy. Crazy I just watched that flick yesterday during a break 🙂
I used to live there when I was little. The picture of the car reminds me of the little FIAT my dad drove. It had rabbit fur seat covers and it was pimpin’ ride.
I think more than anything I miss the smells, especially during the fall. The smell of firmenting grapes was like heaven.
I am Italian but live in London..and miss Italy soooooooooo much! My aunt used to have that 500, same exact colour…I am nostalgic now!!
Gotta love the Cinquecento.
Very lovely! Id like to live in those photos for awhile!
I love, love Italy! I spent about 6 months there during college as well and it was the best experience ever. Can’t wait to go back…hopefully soon! The photos are gorgeous.
enchanted april is my very favorite play.
it’s like a delicate little treat.
These are gorgeous. I’d love to go to Italy.
Just this week I was daydreaming about our trip to Italy 10 years ago. Enchanted April is one of my all time favorite movies. It’s been awhile since I watched it…thanks for the reminder.
Oh man, soo beautiful. I feel the same way about museums 🙂
Beautiful images. Thanks for sharing.
Glad I’m not alone, Michelle:)
Ria– how wonderful that you lived there! I was only there for a few weeks. I love how relaxed everything is.
WIsh to see Italy, one day…
