Tuttovela

Scented soap, Tuttovela village, LivornoYou have seen almost nothing of the wares on sale at the shops inside “Tuttovela” (All about sailing) village, mostly sportswear and sportsgear but it was easy to find the odd merchandise either. In this case incredibly scented soap.Sweets, Tuttovela village, LivornoI don't know what is this, but I'm sure it's delicious!Naval weapons, missiles, Tuttovela village, LivornoI am not sure if you can buy these, but they can be useful in case of noisy neighbors.Bookshop sailboat, Tuttovela village, LivornoWe have already seen “Oloferne” and “La Nave di Carta”: one of the nicest bookshops I have ever seen.

Mmm, this was a fragrant little tour. I worry about what happens to this book store if it should begin to rain.

Those soaps are rather colorful...but probably should be avoided by people with allergies...

The food I would have to try...it doth look scrumptious, though.

I've always wanted to torpedo a certain neighbor...but I'd better resist the temptation.

The bookstore is certainly unique! I'd like to browse there but I can't for two reasons: 1) I might get seasick; and 2) the books are probably all written in Italian!

Heh, heh!

Meanwhile, please follow my instructions and have a wonderful week - "Rome-ing about".

What a wonderful group of images.

Kate said...

The top photo reminds me of the spices I used to see in India markets. Very colourful!

strange what one can buy, isn't it. MB

Gunn said...

You really see and explore your city!
Photo number 3.....well, do you see my smile just now? Well, probably not.;-)
Anyway, have a nice time in ROME!

I want that missile. I could use it at work.

The lavender has a strange colour (if lavanda is lavender of course) and those ummm... cakes... look...ummm like... soap!

joo said...

Soaps have incredible colours - never seen lavender like that!
The cakes are a bit bizzare and I love the 'bookshop':)

Kaori said...

Wonderful photos! And yes, that bookshop looks wonderful! I could be there for hours, except that I get sea sick, so maybe not ;-D

Cezar and Léia said...

1) ahhh lavanda, my favourite!I'm curious about the whole process about soap, I think the colour is also important as the perfum!
2)Those food looks different.MAybe it's about fruits and chocolate, Hmmm I love chocolate!But the yellow cake doesn't look beautiful for my eyes,maybe it's something with papaya?Anyway for sure I would like to try! :)
3)I liked a lot your sense of humor !
4)What a cool place to buy a book and the view is terrific!
Have a great week
hugs

Powdered soap?!

JM said...

Amazing colours in the first shot! I also like the anti-neighbour device! LOL!

Kate said...

I'm back again! Both Jacob and Halcycon told me to send the bench I've featured on my Santa Fe blog to your bench blog, but I still can't figure out how to send the right size! Go see the bench today!!

Halcyon said...

I'll take a piece of cake. And a torpedo to go, please!

Lois said...

Nice colors! One of those would definitely make me be quiet.

Babzy said...

i choose the second shot , looks yummy ;)

Clueless in Boston said...

Quite a selection of goodies. While the torpedos may be tempting to use on occasion, I'll stick with a good book and some of those candies.

Steffe said...

That yellow stuff looks interesting. If you have a go I will also try it.

Hilda said...

Handmade scented soap! One of my weaknesses. The second one does look yummy, whatever it is. I love books, but maybe not on a ship — I get very nauseous when I try reading on anything that's moving, even if it's just bobbing up and down.

And I like your solution for noisy neighbors. I'll need a lot of those.

Wolynski said...

Don't these books blow away? Are you sure the top photo is soap? Looks a little powdery - great photo, though.

CafebyJW said...

Love the colorful works!

Such a colorful selection.
Books on boats=the best of both worlds.
