Collections and Obsessions…Romance

Romance is in the air in so many ways and so many places in my house that I often lose track. The beauty of people sharing special moments together is beautiful, and knowing that there are many artists that have made it a subject for spectators means that other people believe it is beautiful too. Here are some examples of Romance on my walls, shelves, and tea pots.

MessiaenA young man trying to woo a young lady. This is a detail of the painting on a Meissen vase.
