Column Envy

My new blog heading reminded me there was still one more Blog from Rome I wanted to write.
It seems as if every building in Rome is either marble or has columns on it.
The Pope has some great columns.
The war memorial and museum has lots of columns.
You can climb stairs to the top and look out over the city from here.
All these columns!
This ancient front porch is rather spectacular.

I wanted to take this lovely column home, but didn't think it would go in the carry on (My Sweet Hubby loves me enough to pose for silly photos, just because I asked him too).
When it comes right down to it, I think I like my columns better. I love to travel but their is no place like home.


  1. Oh Yeah!! I suffer from that too!!
    Great post....

  2. smiles. column envy...
    there is no place like home indeed...hope you have a great weekend.

  3. Those are some impressive columns!!! :-) Thanks for sharing these lovely pics of Rome - what a gorgeous city!

    Awwww but I so agree, there really is no place like home!

    Take care

  4. Yes, the Romans certainly knew how to do columns! :-)

    My uncle and his wife, who just made a brief visit Tuesday evening/night, live in Bergamo, in northern Italy. My dad spent a month with them back in April/May, took a slew of photos. Not so many columns there, but still lots of Roman ruins in the area.

    It IS lovely to travel, but nothing beats your own bed, your own "stuff," your own safe haven. :-)

  5. Your new header is very pretty! Those are some very nice scratching posts!!!

  6. For a minute there I thought your sweet hubby was trying to uproot the column to try to stick in your carry-on for you!

    I'd love to go see some of the columns over there in Rome - maybe someday!


So, what do you think? Did you like it? I love hearing from you.
