Last Sunday before Xmas in Florence

S.Niccolò Tower with changing light.
Under, Zizzi in Bianchini's chocolate showroom, a delice! We bought some gifts like chocolate with lampons and a special jam to eat with cheese. Bianchini is in via de' Macci 50.
After we had a wonderful vegeterian plate at Persian corner in via de' Magazzini 7 rosso.
( 7 red: Numbers of Florentine streets are black for houses and red for shops, they run indipendently)

Sunday before Christmas in Florence

We did enjoy a long walk in the streets od Florence last Sunday.
Shops were open and Zizzi reached to go in a lot of shops (only to sit down), I don't know how she love that so much. Above, she's in Procacci's (via Tornabuoni) a wonderful little place to drink a glass of good wine and taste truffle sandwiches. The staff were so lovely to offer her a cup of water (look how pretty is the cup).
Under, Zizzi was asked to enter in Elisir, an animal-friendly parfumery in Borgo Albizi 70r. They were really nice too! More, the parfumery has a large choice of parfums not easy to find and very special.

Recycle water of spaghetti!

This is an Italian lady that teached me how to recycle water. Every midday she cooks spaghetti and recycles the hot water, doing a footbath while she eats! It's more cleaver that it seems: this water contains starch and it really soothes your tired foot. More, leaving them to soak while you're eating is a gain of time:-)

Milano: gardens of Guastalla

Guastalla Gardens in the centre of Milano is a wonderful public garden when dogs can run free some hour in the morning and some hour in the afternoon. The timetable changes every month, depending on daylight.

Below, a milanese breakfast - colazione - cappuccino and cornetto!

A nice corner in Milano

these houses are right in the centre of Milano, near Piazza 5 Giornate. It looks like being in Liguria. I think this is an interesting example of how the use of colours enhances our towns!

Dolci in Alto Adige

Sopra, non è un dolce ma una pubblicità di asciugamani da bagno, soffici come un dolce, bella l'idea e la realizzazione, vero?
Sotto invece, dolci veri: le deliziose frittelle di mele mangiate alla sagra della polenta di Fié (mele tagliate a rondelle, immerse nella pastella e fritte) e una fetta di montebianco in un caffé di Castelrotto.

Something green...

A stripe for the table

For my jewels

I have a passion for looking around finding objects. These are simple pieces, not signed, coming from flea markets but also from the great distribution.
