Weekly Photo Challenge: Heritage

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The first laces of Burano, Italy, date back to the 1500s. There is a long history of lace making and schooling of lace in Burano that is a heritage that had been revived in 1978 when the Burano Lace Museum was established. Their methods for making lace is still the same today and peering into the back of any of the lace shops in Burano, one can see these lovely ladies hunched over their pillows, hard at work. It is remarkable to see the lacemakers working their fine art with such nimble fingers–I was in awe.

Daily Gratitude: a day on the beach with a nice bay breeze; a stroll in my garden to see who is offering up their blossoms to for me to view; seeing my first black swallowtail in search of nectar
