Great shot! I can't imagine the quality work and it is done by hand. 'tis a shame that these traditions are dying out.

Very cute. Great choice Maria.

I think I may have watched those very same ladies in one of the many shops on the island.
Great picture.

Hi Maria, cool photo! And perfect choice for this week's theme. I treasure my Burano Lace Table cloths that I purchased in 2007 and seeing this photo makes me treasure them even more!

Have a wonderful weekend too Maria!

Beautiful shot! I love how they both have little foot stools. Hope you're having a nice weekend too!

Is that the shop at the end, near the church, where you go upstairs to see the showroom?

If it is, I got my amethyst pashmina there.

Beautiful photo. It really looks like a photo taken many years ago. Great choice for the theme this week.

Nice photo. When we were in Venice, it was for such a short time that we didn't get to any of the other islands. Nice to see photos from there.

great interpretation on the photo hunt theme!

What a lovely photo! I wonder if they can tolerate doing such fine work every day, or if their eyes (and backs!) limit the amount they can do. Such painstaking work.
