Ah Italy

Many of you may be aware of my almost obsessive love of all things Italian – nothing more than Italy herself of course.  One day I will visit there on Your behalf specifically to source more beautiful unique things to bring back to McLaren Vale.

When you think of what you want me to find for you, be sure to let me know!

How is your Christmas list coming along?  Be sure to add these Italian Glass or feather pens for anyone with an interest in art, writing, the classics, history or handwriting.

INK – those over 50 remember it with various memories, a common one of being the Ink Monitor…it was SUCH a privilege in Year 4!  Those under 50, and especially the little ones, tend to be fascinated by it.  I always give the children (and their parents) a try with my glass pen when they come in.  Most often they are tentative and wonder whether they can ‘write like normal’.  They can indeed.  And they invariably love it!

And just in Direct from Firenze are these beautiful must have leather shoulder bags.  Those who have wandered through the Firenze markets will recognise these immediately.  They are all in beautiful quality leather, and we have a variety of colours in store.

Ciao Bella!
