If the Borgia’s had light switch plates, part 2

Thank you so much for the wonderful comments on the last switch plate. You all made my day.

It was very nice to have people love something that I love too!

This is not always the case.

Have you ever made something and thought this is the best thing I have done, EVER?

Then had no one take the least bit of interest or even the slightest look at a piece you think is just the best thing you have ever done.

Don’t you just hate that?

I know hate is a strong word, but I really don’t like that a lot.

So thank you again for agreeing with me. I love that switch plate, but…

this one is my all time favorite now!

Don’t know why, just is. I do think it is the color though. It is a little brighter and lighter than the last one.

Maybe because the individual components stand out more against the background.

Rodrigo Borgia was pope at the end of the 15th century, he was a womanizer and he used his papal seat to elevate his family to new heights of wealth and prestige.

There are also opinions of the opposite too.

“His pontificate is frequently characterized in extremities – he is often said to have been the worst of all Popes. But there are also positive opinions and legends about Rodrigo, mostly strengthened by the recent discovery of various historical documents. The era in which Alexander VI held supreme papal power was full of scandals, infringements and signs of moral offense among the highest authorities of the Latin Church, and whether he did any worse than many of his predecessors and successors has been questioned.”

Pope Alexander VI

Papa ALEXANDER Sextus

He served from 11 August 1492– 18 August 1503

11 years and 7 days

But 17 out of 22 cardinals supposedly voted for him out of greed.

It is a new Showtime series called the Borgia’s and Jeremy Irons plays Rodrigo.

I am intrigued by the costuming and the sets and Jeremy Irons. ;-D

It is very hard to beat Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Henry in the Tudors in my opinion.

I am finding though that the more I know the characters, the more I like, no love, the series.

The season finale airs on Sunday the 22nd of May. ;-(
