Knock, Knock!

There are so many beautiful doors and knockers in Florence...why do I like hardware so much? LOL
Here are a couple of my favourites.

One from Pisa...

...and one from Siena too ;)

A close up on the fountain outside our hotel.

On our travels through the maze of streets in Florence we stumbled across this wonderful shop called Il Papiro.

Where this man demonstrated how to lay inks onto the surface of the water and how to manipulate them into patterns.

To make beautiful papers.

The shop was full of lovely paper stuff made with the papers and calligraphy, inks, pens and the like...
...I thought I had died and gone to heaven!! LOL

Thanks for looking
