Oh Sophia! Such a babe.

Also, good call chickens. Who would pick rocket over pasta?

Pizzellas are those biscuits to the left of the tray (the waffle-looking ones). Are your in-laws from Abruzzo (Italy)?

Vickie said...

mmm, yum! & your dress is so pretty :)

Lovely post and that is a gorgeous cardigan. I can see why it encourages the threat of addiction! My chickens like to eat apples.

Oh, it looks like a dream to live there!

I have a cardigan just like that but I have never thought of the sequins being soap bubbles. That's just lovely! Thank you for your sweet comment on my snow post. :-) xx

The colour of the dress is perfect, apricot is one of my favourite colours, It reminds me so much of Summer holidays. :)

E said...

Your blog is lovely and your hair is absolutely amazing!
I really enjoy your photos, I am italian and your spaghetti looks very good :)

Hope the eyes are improving.
But your outfit is gorgeous, as always. I have a vintage cardigan with the same pearl button detail, love it so much.
Btw, any news on the hair colour? Whats going to be next? Think the silver colour from your last post looks amazeballs

You're so pretty!Love the detail of your cardi and the dress is a great color.I want my own chickens so badly,I'm sure they wanted the pasta more too.

I adore the fact that we are both IBM (ok, I'm taking a leap here and guessing that, like myself, you're not Italian - please forgive me if you are) - that is to say, Italian by marriage. My sweet Tony was born and raised in Italy, only leaving to find work elsewhere in Europe in his early 20s, and marrying him was my first true expose to life in an Italian family
