Faenza is a town in the north of Italy 50 k south of Bologna, well known for its manufacture of glazed earthenware pottery. It is from its name that the term faience is given to these ceramics. The International Museum of Ceramics has pieces from all over the world, with a large section from Faenza which reached the height of its fame during the Renaissance (14th - 17th centuries). The town dates back to Roman times.

  1. Oh that is so pretty Sheila.

    Sheila how are you doing? Did you find another job yet? I think of you all of the time and I have been wondering if you found something yet. Times are so hard now in the job market, there is an hour line just to get to the front door at our local unemployment office, it's horrible. I pray that something will come along for you and soon. I hope you are doing good and have a great Tuesday.


  2. Ceramics? Interesting. I hope you are doing well.

  3. Hi Sheila me again, I just wanted you to know that you have two awards waiting for you on my blog and there are no rules, you can pass them to whom ever you would like.


  4. Hello Sheila. I wanted to say (better late than really late...) BIG thanks for the postcard you sent me sometime ago. I liked it very much and what a nice gigantic stamp! :-)

    I'd love to send a postcard back if you'll let me. you may send an address via email (thepostcardcollectoratgmaildotcom).

    I wish you well...



Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
