As an aid to my poor brain that these days is more like a steel sieve than a steel trap:

Italian Majolica pottery- pretty! I want to make some of these some day!

A really nice collection of "Italian Ren" resource links. I've already picked out some a couple of times to get people started who don't yet want to invest in books until they've tried a few styles first: http://www.quite-contrary.org/cost_link_ital.php
Includes Drea's fantastic online reference to the Milanise Tailor's handbook:

I've got a friend who's thinking about apprenticing and she wants a persona appropriate scroll. I sent her the links I still had from when I researched  mine and the transcription of the basis for mine, but I can't seem to find the image of the original extant scroll. Any suggestions? 

Also, someone on my Friends list posted these really cool doll links. I'm totally blown away, and instantly though of Mort:  Beware, it does show some images of naked dolls.

Maiolica ideas
I want to paint the pitcher and bowl- from "the bean eater"

Eventually I'd like to enter Kingdom A&S and I think I want at least one of my entries to be a Maiolica piece. I'm not sure what yet there, other than I want it to be something reasonably persona appropriate as that will be the theme for all of my entries.
Maybe this one, only switch out the devices:

Knitted Venetian sailor's cap:

I had started making a knitted cap once upon a time, but it was using the modern two needles hooked together. I want to try it sometime with the double ended needles.
