Venetian Island of Burano - Lace, lace, lace.

Let's just take care of that selfie-a-day requirement right off the bat, shall we?

Another day in Venice, another vaporetto ride to adventure.  This time to Burano, where the ladies make lace and the houses are brightly colored.

This style of lace is made with thread.  As someone who knits in fine gauge yarn, I should be used to investing tons of time in one project.  Still, I was astonished at the time, detail and skill needed to create a small area of this type of lace.

They have a museum, too. We went in.  It didn't knock my socks off.
