Putti Appreciation

Admittedly, the holiday season is the one time of the year that I can share my appreciation for putti without looking too cutesy. 
And so, this being December first and the start of my holiday decorating, I would like to share with you the putti from our travels. 
I don't seem to see many here in my home town, but we readily see them in Europe.

Putti at the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence

 Putti at the Vatican in Rome

A putto somewhere in Florence

A putto at Versailles (gilded, of course)

Are you a putti appreciator?

    I love ces petits enfants ailés - everything has its place!

  5. The fall weddings captures the beautiful autumn or fall season. Mother Nature turns the color of the leaves from green to orange. The landscape and foliage add warm and rich color accents to the wedding.
