PhotoHunt: Wrinkled - Venice, San Marco Square

This is my latest entry.





I don't take an iron to Italy so... I actually don't care if our travel clothes get a bit wrinkled, not when there's Piazza San Marco to stroll through.

And just for fun - here is my oldest son Giancarlo:

WOW!
This is so cool, I'm the first one to coment I don't really think I've been the first one to leave you a comment!

Is this a Pamela Lefors design? She's great!

Normally for travelling I always bring t shirt as not easy to get wrinkled.. hehe..

Randi said...

I´m hanging my wrinkled cloths in the shower when I´m travelling - it works ;)
Have a great weekend!

Annie said...

I don't travel with an iron either. Fortunately wrinkles don't bother me! Wonderful photos - have a good weekend!

Deana said...

I don't care either when I am out exploring. And if I ever get to the beautiful places you've been I REALLY wouldn't care what I looked like. I'd be too busy soaking all that in.
BTW- everything you make here is just so darn pretty!

Great idea Leslie.. what matter a few wrinkles when you have such a beautiful place to be in! Happy weekend

leslie said...

Iron when traveling? You gotta be kidding! If you roll your shirts, they won't need ironing, just shake 'em out and voila!

Carver said...

I had to laugh because your oldest son irons about the way I do. I not only don't iron when I'm traveling, I was serious on my blog about letting my shower to my ironing. It takes a very special occasion for me to iron. Happy weekend.

ellen b said...

Love how he wrinkles up the shirt after smoothing it out so nicely!!

pat said...

Oh I hate to iron, so would never bring one along on a holiday! :-)

Happy Weekend.

sho said...

Sue said...

kaycee said...

Pretty Life Online said...

Great choice for today's theme... Mine's up too , hope you can hop at corner too... Happy weekend!

Sandrac said...

Leslie, that's hilarious! I've recently been thinking about posting something in defence of people who can't bear to go unironed. Yes, I travel with a little travel iron and spend (waste?) more time than I should trying to press my suitcase-crushed clothes. I can't help it, it gives me a sense of order in a chaotic world!

June said...

Traveling = wrinkles, pure and simple. I might have to try Randi's tip next trip...

Chen said...

normally i will bring clothes that are not easily wrinkled when i go for vacation :)

YTSL said...

Wow, you managed to be really creative with this Photo Hunt entry. Well done! :)

napaboaniya said...

No problems with a few wrinkles when one's having fun during travel.

Criz Lai said...

What? Giancarlo is the man with the IRON hand? Haha... This is the first time I see someone ironing the wrinkled shirt with bare hands.. Cool post Leslie! :)

Very nice work ! I never worry about wrinkles, when it is hot weather everybody is wrinkled, lol !

jmb said...

Who cares if we are wrinkled in such a wonderful place. Italians are always wrinkled in their linen. Happy weekend.

Barbara H. said...

What beautiful layouts!

Baker Watson said...

What's an iron? LOL

Nice take on the theme. I didn't even think about wrinkled clothes.

Haha.. I hate ironing, especially when traveling, so I usually bring a jacket to cover up. Excellent take though!

Tough not to get wrinkled while traveling. Nice take on the Theme.

archiearchive said...

Hehehe - I gave up ironing some years ago - irons in the desert are a bit of a waste. Love the Venice shots! Sometimes I get the urge to travel that far.

Mar said...

I love your layout and the video is hilarious!!
I love linen because I can always wear it like it is and nobody can tell it wasn't ironed, lol!
Happy PH and happy weekend!

girasoli said...

Hey, I iron like that (except I don't even use water!). I hate to iron so I make sure to get the clothes out of the dryer right as the buzzer goes off and don't buy clothes that look like they will get too wrinkled.

Great design and fun choice for this week's theme.

dmeemai said...

count me in the anti-ironing campaign! LOL

i hate to iron so when traveling, i roll (as opposed to folding) all the clothes in my suitcase to lessen the "wrinkles"- it works 80% of the time!! the 20%? i just shrug it off and wear them wrinkled!

nice take on the theme! :-)

marcia@joyismygoal said...

Stop by and see my cute dimpled /wrinkled three generations/

Tokenhippygirl said...

Excellent take on the theme! Loved the whole balling the shirt up at the end of the video. Very funny.

MarĂ­a I. said...

I loved the video! Too funny!

I confess that I do carry a small travel iron and I blame it on my Italian heritage.

Brine Queen said...

Awesome. I really like the forehead wrinkles on the second photo!

dawn said...

Lovely pictures. I don't mind wrinkles on my clothes either and I detest ironing unless it's very necessary.

Patricia said...

Love it - the photos and the video. Very creative.

Sammawow said...

I love the video for the wrinkled theme! Also great pages of Venice.

So far I have really liked PSE 6 and look forward to doing more digital scrapbook pages. I always enjoy looking at yours! I am working on one for our 25th wedding anniversary...

IRISHKAT said...

I hate the iron so I NEVER use it! Great pics!!

Katney said...

Creative thinking about wrinkles. I have enjoyed how many have avoided the obvious.

Aileni said...

I've seen a lot of wrinkled clothing in the last 24 hours.

Sabine said...

Great wrinkles there Leslie - and so beautifully packaged! (um... I meant the layout, but your son's handsome too LOL!)

mistyeiz said...

i hate ironing hence i try to get clothes that dont need ironing. :)

Colin Campbell said...

Travelling gives me the wrinkles. The clothes can recover. We don't.

Dragonstar said...

Pretty and fun post! I loved that video!

kathy (Trekcapri) said...

Hi Leslie, cool theme photos! Loved the video!

Marta said...

I actually love to iron. It was one of my childhood chores to iron my father's chambray shirts. The smell of warm cotton can send me back to age 10.

I do have a travel iron but I gave up carting that around and today I buy clothes that travel well or are purposely wrinkled. :)

Thanks for stopping by

WillThink4Wine said...

Oh, that is just TOO cool and so... so... so male!

Annie said...

OMG, that video is hilarious! Love how the cat jumps down the minute the spray bottle starts, LOL.

When you're traveling, who cares about wrinkles!! Envious of your destination.

Liz said...

Beautifully laid out, and I wouldn't care about wrinkles in venice either!
