All I bought yesterday was this pair of blue & white elephant obelisk lamps (and they were very pricey). Both G and I loved them (G more than I). I have seen similar representations of this form of obelisk, but didn't know where the original came from and vowed to investigate. After buying the lamps, I went to shop to take photos of a set of 8 Fornasetti plates.
As you know, I frequently write about Serendipity and the joy it brings me to know that I'm connected to so much that I'm only marginally aware of.)
Anyway, here is the second plate that I photographed

Yep, there is the elephant obelisk--It's a real obelisk situated in the Piazza di Minerva.........I didn't even need to open the computer or go down any rabbits holes to satisfy my quest to identify the obelisks. And that is also connection.
I'm so excited that Fall is approaching.....I do not like the heat and we need rain desperately. As I studied the paler blue sky and wispy clouds this morning, I could almost smell Fall in the (crisper?) ocean breezes.

Blessings for the next to the last real summer week-end.

    1. Hi Anita, Thank you so much!! It's been a little slow; so a few prayers sent my way might do the trick for my getting back into the flow.
