lovely homes {a house tour}

We have another wonderful Phoenix home to share with you as part of our 'lovely homes' house tours.  This time Amy Adkins let us invade her beautiful home.  This 1952 mid-century gem is beyond charming.  I love that old Phoenix feeling that still exists in these homes.  Hope you enjoy peeking around as much as we did...  Have fun!

Thanks so much, Amy!

tuesday's favorite

We are starting a new little weekly post, in which we feature a favorite item from the store each Tuesday.  Perhaps something new to the shop, or maybe an old favorite that we don't want you to forget about.  Then, if you come in to the store and mention that you saw that treasure on our blog, you will receive 20% off the item of the week.  For our first two Tuesday features, we are offering the savings through Mother's Day, so keep those moms you love in mind!

Our first Tuesday favorite is...
The new Grey Lastra Collection from Vietri.  Plates, bowls, chargers and serving ware are all available!
The style of this collection is modern, in both color and lines, but with beautiful classic craftsmanship.
And, of course, it is made in Italy!

Don't you just love it!

when in rome...

The square in Siena, down the hill from the Duomo.

To say we are having a great time would be an understatement!  There is so much to see and do (and eat and drink!), we just seem to be having one adventure after the next!  Thought I would drop in with a few recent pictures!  Enjoy and I will be back on that side of the ocean soon!  Miss you all!

The Duomo in Siena.

Arrived with a smile!  First glass of wine in Rome!  In Piazza Navona.  Arrived today, heading to the vatican in the A.M.
Wine tasting with three course meal!  Need stretch pants now!

Check out the menu...  many a Roman specialty!
Yes, coffee again.  To be followed by wine tasting in the vineyard.
Pierluigi, owner of the vineyard.  Many good laughs and memories.  Yes, I ordered some for the fam! 

Vineyard in San Gimignano.  Very special.

traveling, traveling

view from our room in Venice

So, have I mentioned I am in Italy right now?
I tagged along with my friend Laurie to surprise her daughter Paige who (unbeknownst to Paige) was getting engaged in Venice.  Her fiance arranged the whole thing as a big surprise.  So, on the night they got engaged, there we were!  Lots of tears and laughs (and wine)!  It was a great night!  We are in Florence now and will be heading on to Rome next!  I will try and drop another little update in before I get back.  Wish us well!

Showing off the ring!
What we wake up to every morning in our room...  it's a rough life.
A delicious restaurant in Florence last night.
Right out our room in Florence.

So, any must see suggestions for Rome?  I have been before, but would love to know of that little out of the way cafe or restaurant that is off the beaten path...

planting a love for gardening

Just wanted to share this adorable little gift my friend Susan put together for her granddaughter.  She asked me to make the apron and she put all these sweet little gardening goodies together in this perfect vintage, turquoise tool box.  I think it turned out to be just about the cutest little gift for a young girl.  And what a great hobby to instill in our little ones!

It was a great one this year with all the family together!
How very blessed we are indeed!
Hope yours was a good one, too!

new growth on easter!

The always lovely, Lisa from the Willows shared this sweet picture with us.  She planted wildflower seeds in egg shells and got the very first sprouts Easter morning!  What a beautiful way to start the day!
