Remembering Beatrice Galli....

........and for no good reason at all, I am thinking about the magical little wool shop run for so many years by Beatrice Galli in Florence, just over the Pont de Vecchio to the right....full of Italy's best yarns -- with a back door, visible in these shots, that led to a small balcony over the Arno River. The last time I was there, I bought her out of house and home, which delighted her; now, she is closed. While she was there, however, the shop was something a lot of people from around the world visited first when they were in Florence. I wonder why I'm thinking about her today? Maybe because June was when I used to go to Italy each summer. Time to do that again ... and she will be missed. svb
