    Well... you could buy the British version and give the US version to a friend as a present?

    Though aqua sounds pretty too...

    Anyway, it's a lovely idea and looks wonderful - specially in the more recent photo.

    I hope you don't mind, but I featured this image of yours in my blog
    I linked back to you, and stated that it was your Flickr image.

    I know you've since updated the room, but I fell in love with this image years ago!

    This image - and all others on this subject, "collections, lots of (whatever), miscellaneous, patterns, textures, persevering and/or very detailed studies images etc." - would be lovely on our very new group, called ALL COLLECTIONS

    If you accept the invitation, it is not necessary to ask to join the group. Just click on link above (in blue); then appears a window on you not to have to ask anything - just say "hi" and send back :-)

    It would be adorable have your artwoks on that subjects there.

    I absolutely love this! It's a really great picture and what an idea! I never would've imagined!

    I wanted to ask - can I use your picture as my image on twitter? It fits very well with my screen name (and I love the pic so much!)

    This actually inspired me to do the same with our DVDs :)

    This is just............... so wrong for my alphanumeric brain. I'd never find anything. It does make for a great shot though and reminds me of a fantastic shirt shop I went into in Italy. Happy times.
  • chotda PRO 5y

    :) well, at least it evokes some sort of positive response! where was this shirt shop?
  • Robert Malcolm 5y

    Chotda, the shirt shop is (was) in a supermarket at Portogruaro in the Veneto. My visit was 15 years ago. The memory is vivid because it was the first time that I had seen shirts organised by colour, neatly folded in square box compartment shelves.

    Yum! Used to organize my crayons by color, but never would have thought of organizing my *cough* (giant number) of bookcases this way. I love it! Good on you for thinking to take--and share--a photo of your delightful sense of style. Your pic' is my 'feel good' item for the day. :) Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

    I work for a museum in Australia.
    I love your pic and wondered if I could use it to advertise our book club?
    If so, can I get a high res version please?
    Many thanks
