Our Italian shipment arrived yesterday!!!! I hurriedly started unpacking so I could find the ETSY items I needed to ship today.
And, it was super fun to see the beautiful things I was so blessed to be able to find during our months living in Italy.
Each piece evokes a vivid memory.
And, while this is not a formal tablescape, I knew that my friends at the wonderful Susan’s BNOTP Tablescape Thursday would LOVE to see many of my “pretties” all stacked up on the table.
Doesn’t your heart go pitter patter a little more swiftly when you see so many beautiful dishes and accoutrement all stacked together?
I knew YOU would understand!!!
Ooohhh…one of my demijohns!!! Rhoda left with my super big one (and ya’ll—I had an amazing time with her this weekend—she’s definitely family now and is as wonderful if not more so than what you have experienced on her blog! I’ll be posting some pretty funny pictures of her in the next few days!) but I’ll get another one soon! I have just a few for sale on my ETSY site.
Some of these items you’ve seen, but many you haven’t.
I look forward to sharing them all with you soon. First I need to make sure my wonderful husband is safely off on his year long deployment to Afghanistan. He’s in the garage right now doing “manly” stuff and I’m taking a break from unpacking, which is why I’m blogging—a little breather.
Today was super busy not only unpacking but mailing many ETSY packages. I wanted to get them off ASAP.
In various shots you can see the gorgeous Italian chandelier that I took to the UPS store this afternoon to rush it off to my dear bloggie friend, Vanna, from Delusions of Grandeur! She’s such a sweetie!!! I’m glad that my “baby” is going to go “to a good home.”
Do you want to hear something funny?
Despite the mountain of gorgeous Italian goodies on my table, this doesn’t even include all the amazing linens or the Belgian and French pieces I was able to find!!! WHAT? Am I for real? YES!!!
I did some SERIOUS shopping while living in EUROPE!!!
Well, I need to finish some more details in finalizing the updating of our wills and various other vital documents, so I will go for now.
