Stripes…

2 Comments

More than twenty-five years ago, I went through a phase where I was obsessed with black and white checkerboard. I put them everywhere I could, bought fabric for quilts in every size I could find, and used them for borders whenever possible. I grew out of that phase, but now I fear it is coming back. Only, this time it is black and white stripes, or maybe grey and white depending on if the building facade has been restored and cleaned in the last few decades. There will be more of these places in the future, but these are the stripes of Siena and Orvieto, my new passion.

  1. Oh. I thought you meant stripes in fashion like the my new black and white zebra-striped top!!!! However, your photos are absolutely stunning, Lois. Hope all is well.
