Hidden Gems


Italy’s hidden gems……

Roaming the streets of Rome … found this quaint little restaurant. A quick glance would suggest that they are closed, yet inside it is filled with boisterous patrons enjoying their Sunday brunch. One never knows what will be found …  just around the corner …


Italian Leather 


Florence is known to have the best quality leather goods for sale at the best prices….

Be wary – some quality handbags sold at the markets are vinyl, imported from china.


How do you tell the difference?? 

Test it!  test to see if it’s real leather?  Pull out the lighter or match. Heat the bag. Vinyl will melt.  Ask the vendor to do the test … They are happy to do so.

        Watching Us From Another World 


           The best and most beautiful things 

                in the world cannot be seen 

                          or even touched.

             they must be felt with the heart
