Baby Window

Another Sunday walk, we start in “Via Sardi” with a the funny sign of this ladies' wear shop.At the “Petit Bateau” (Little Boat) store in “Via Ricasoli” they put paper boats in the window to publicize their sales.Have you ever seen a baby window? This one has already grown her shutter and a pot of flowers.A villa in “Via Calzabigi” has one of the nicest mailbox in town.“Il brutto anatroccolo” (The Ugly Duckling) seems an appropriate name for a beauty center.

Wonderful little stroll, VP, thank you very much. I'm particularly delighted to have met the window family, particularly darling little window junior. You are a clever, clever VP.

Nice mix of pictures and colors.
I like the "Posta" sign.

What a wonderful Sunday walk. Love the signs. The little window is fantastic and I love the name of the beauty center.

Halcyon said...

Funny window! I like the colors too.

Jacob said...

Terrific, VP! Thanks for brightening up my evening! Each of these photos is special...but I like the first one (so what does "Smurfy" mean?) and the one with the little window...I expected to see a little head pop out of that one!

Can't imagine a beauty salon with the name of Ugly Duckling!

The pink boats are too cute. Sale as in sail?

Funny little window. Smurfy and Ugly Little Duckling (very funny)? There's more to Livorno than first meets the eye.

Oh so neat. Windows should be a theme for a day and you would be one step ahead. LOL
Love the baby window. Learning good lessons. MB

You picked out all the little treasures along your walk.
Love how you call that a baby window. :)

Gunn White said...

Nice details, and some really stylish. like the mailbox.

I always enjoy your Sunday walks:) This time it's difficult to say which I like the most - the imprisoned dress in the first is terrific, paper boats are really unusual not mention beauty center or mailbox, but I think that baby window is the cutest!

Very funny. The blue shutters and baby window are a real treat. I love your descriptions!

It's amazing what you can see by taking a walk.

Okay, let’s start:
-Smurfy, so lovely store, I would like to shop there, I think it could be my style!I don’t know if this is an expensive store ( I hope it doesn’t ), anyway it is charming!
-50% is a bargain! So interesting about they put boats to advice about sales!
-You got me, I have never seen a “baby window” before, it’s different and gave a beautiful detail at the façade.
-I think Via Calzabigi, is an elegant place to live. I imagine here those buildings and houses ( maybe mansions) just for the example of mailbox.
-And finally, please VP, I need an appointment at that “Il brutto anatroccolo”, and it’s urgent! ;)
Cool post!
Ciau!

I just love these walks you take, VP! I like Smurfy and the baby window best of all! And it's nice to see a salon whose owner has a sense of humor.

I Do like that mail box! How clever to make paper boats to advertise a sale - cheap advertising!

Kate said...

You find so many fascinating objects to photograph on your walks! Good for your health, too!

Love the mailbox, very elegant.

Three Rivers, Michigan said...

So funny! Thanks for the smiles for today. The "Ugly Duckling" - I hope that is what one is when going in, not when coming out! And I have never seen the elusive baby window before; often, they nest only in hidden areas of builders' lots. I'm not sure I would wear anything from a store called "Smurfy" but I like the pink bateaus. And I would like that beautiful mailbox, please...

This is my favorite part about Europe - walking and looking at the windows for sales. That pink boats are cute, but no cuteness can make me have more kids :) The sight of baby clothes and diapers is horrifying - I just got out of it and sent those babies to school :)

Andreea said...

Nice and colorful, those boats are so eye catching. I am envious in regards to your Sunday walks :) the rough weather here in Bucharest made me give up mine.
