a wine tasting evening in Rome

impression from a wine tasting evening in Rome... few words in this post... but a lot of good wine tasting and a lot of chit chats!
and could I not taste a great wine made by the  Amalfi coast? a great wine made by a small small winery Azienda Vinicola Marisa Cuomo run by a woman in Furore.

My secret Santa Claus. Thank you LILLICOSE !

Each year with the ETSYITALIATEAM we have a  "Secret Santa Claus" little game in wich each of us send to another member a gift for x-mas.
My gift was unfortunately lost in the mail... so part of the surprise was taken away because I knew who was going to send it to me. However to my surprise my secret Santa was going to be the one I had wished for: one handmade items from LILLICOSE. I have been following her for quite a long time and I love the way she recycle and reuse materials and when she kindly told me that she was going to send me another bracelet I was avidly checking everyday in the mailbox for her gift... I must say I felt like a small girl!!
And today finally.... here is my package from LILLICOSE... what to say ?!? the packaging was made with a lot of care (and being myself a seller and a buyer  I know that she went the extra mile to ensure that it would arrive perfectly safe!) already so beautiful..
but the best part is yet to come...
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN... I am proud to present this great handmade bracelet:
The best part is the way it fits and the many ways you can wear this gorgeous bracelet. I really do not have the words to describe the feeling as if gently and sofly adapts perfectly to my wrist... and you can wear it with the black part on the top or the side with all the little charms....
to cut short: I LOVE THIS BRACELET !!!
THANK YOU LILLICOSE  for this original and perfect gift...I make jewels myself but this one has already become one of my favorite !!!

handtatted "millefiori" paperweight

his piece is very unusual and very hard to find such a large and heavy piece. While covering it with handtatted (of course by me) flower design makes I had to think to the "millefiori" paperweight glass from Murano, thus this name.
