this will be a short post with BaBa‘s softness and some madness provided by me.
I was afraid I’d feel sad and lonely after Downton Abbey‘s last special (couldn’t be more true), so I got these together with it. 😀
and together with them I couldn’t possibly ignore the fact that little Taras hasn’t received anything in a while, so I got this for him. much appreciated.
now, still wondering why I called this post The Lady in Yellow? well, that’s how the Italian title for Murder, she wrote is translated: La signora in giallo.
why, you might wonder. she didn’t wear yellow all the time! not at all! – right, but a yellow novel (romanzo giallo) is how we call mystery novels here!
but why is it so, you might now be wondering. well, one of the most successful publishers for this kind of novels here was Mondadori, and they dedicated an entire series to them using yellow covers back in 1929. now giallo in Italian means unsolvable mystery, mystery novel, etc.
that’s how it all began.
