Random things about me

Anya tagged me, and I thought it might be a good opportunity to share some photos. I love taking pictures, so here's a photo list of six random things about me:

1. I love natural history museums! I took this pic in Oxford, England: The Rivers-Pitt Museum. Doesn't he look like he's saying, "Hey baby, how YOU doin'?"

2. I spent a semester in Florence, Italy, when I was studying art history as an undergrad. This is one of my favorite pictures I took in Urbino:
Castello Urbino

3. When I bought my money-pit of a house in Austin, it came with a bonus: these two kittens were found by the termite guys checking under the house. I took one look and fell in love with their little (at the time) 6-week-old selves. Delia is the little tortoise-shell troublemaker and Virgil is the buff-and white big guy.

4. This is how I feel wearing a really great perfume:
Sea Lion, Central California Coast.

5. I am a morning person!

6. I don't have a picture for this one, but I bought two big nightblooming jasmines on crazy cheap sale last weekend, and I can't wait to have all that jasmine goodness wafting all around my house.

This tag game is proving quite entertaining. Thanks for sharing.
What beautiful photos, you do have talent (the Urbino one is glorious, isn't Italy sublime?). And we share more than I thought in common if you studied Art History. (any specific period?)

Hi Helg, yes, it is fun! Thanks for the compliment, too. Yeah, I would go to Italy every year if I could. Love it.

I took a wide range of periods, because it was undergraduate work, but Renaissance art was my main interest. What did you study?

I love that big fat seal hugging herself - looks like me in Mitsouko! LOL

Rose said...

I love the Pitt Rivers too- and yes he does look like he's saying that!

Aimée L'Ondée said...

and lady jicky, he/she looks like me in L'Heure Bleue!

19th-c. natural history museums are the BEST, aren't they, Rose? There is a really good one at Harvard, too -- the Peabody Museum.
