Looking for 52



While in Florence, I admired the blue and white porcelain numbers on the buildings....
...as we walked down the street I was on the lookout for my number ...52...



Oh no! What does it mean?
...How sad....

I really like my number.

I really like the typo! Too bad! I am 'collecting' the number 1 - 100 (and door knockers and letter box plates, only in my hometown for starters). Have a great weekend!

I love these numbers,although I never think that they would look quite right on my English Victorian house....it doesn't seem to look right to me....but when I have seen them in Italy, they look wonderful, as do the French house numbers, which are slightly different to the Italian ones.......
It would have to be your number that had been defaced, wouldn't it, Laura. As much as I love Italy, France and the rest of Europe, I think that, sometimes, people have a romantic idea that these sort of things don't happen, but, as you've shown, I'm afraid they do. XXXX

Laura said...

52 FLEA =
52 weekends in a year and 52 opportunities to go to the flea market!

That's my answer and I'm sticking to it!

Well, curious but slightly nervous about what I might find, I googled some of that vocabulary and it seems to be Spanish, not Italian! Anyone have any opinions? They seem to be Spanish place names. What can be going on..?

Laura said...

Well that's a relief! ....I was a bit fearful of the possibility of much worse...
In any case.....why is there so much graffiti? I noticed this all over Italy and it makes me sad because the buildings are all so ancient and lovely...it is such a shame that they are defaced in this way and it surely detracts from their beauty.

Lisa said...

Cool! Glad someone was smart enough to look it up! Never occurred to me. hehe
Hugs, Lisa

Hi Laura,

It's almost been a year since I last visited!
I was always peeking here everyday just waiting for you
To post. I've been so busy re-doing an old warehouse in the Texas Hill Country. I have no idea what that says, but it is sad to see that on such a beautiful piece. I'm finally to a point I can get out and start shopping the flea markets agin. I will keep my eyes peeled for 52! I love the 52 weekends to shop! I have missed you nod your log so much, such an inspiration.
