CONTESSA’s CURTAIN COAT
that needs an iron,but I thought you would ENJOY this shot of the POCKETS!
This coat I had made out of OLD CURTAINS and made the POCKETS EXTRA LARGE for collecting THE EGGS from the CHICKEN COOP.
TOTALLY GETS ME!!!!!!!!
How many of you have been following me since
THE LITTLE CONTESSA in TRAINING MODELED FOR ME?
CLICK BELOW to SEE.
I actually called her AUDREY………….as she reminded me of AUDREY HEPBURN.
These photos were taken over SEVEN years ago.
(I had TWO comments,one was me!)
She HAILED from ITALY and is the daughter of my husbands BEST MAN at OUR WEDDING.
She has landed in MEDOC, FRANCE with MIMI THORISSON
in an old MANOR HOME that needs RENOVATIONS and REPAIRS.
Mimi, has written TWO COOKBOOKS, has a column for FRENCH ELLE and I believe has a TV SHOW.
ON TOP OF ALL THIS SHE HAS A HOUSE FULL OF CHILDREN and FLOWERS.
SOUND OF MUSIC.
THE COUNT/HUSBAND hails from ICELAND and is a PHOTOGRAPHER.
He has taken ALL the photos you will see on her BLOG and in her COOKBOOKS.
The children know NOT to start eating before PAPA takes THE SHOT!
HE LOVES CAMPARI as does THE ITALIAN.
Can YOU see me smiling?
FRANCESCA & MIMI
I am VERY PROUD of MY LITTLE CONTESSA in TRAINING as she seems a perfect match for MIMI.
She speaks ITALIAN (of course)FRENCH as she went to school in PARIS, English as she lived in the STATES for a short time (WISCONSIN) has a BACHELOR DEGREE in VISUAL ARTS and THEATER continued on for a MASTER’s DEGREE in ART MANAGEMENT
PLUS, she LOVES RED LIPSTICK!
Mimi opens up her garden come summer time and serves meals AL FRESCO!
Francesca is there to ASSIST with some of the details.
The DAY she GOT the JOB I was messaged and TEARS just came FLOWING down my cheeks!
Little CONTESSA is living a DREAM of mine perhaps!
I LOVE TO MAKE CONNECTIONS.
I so HOPE I have made a GOOD one HERE.

I HAD THE REIKI READING DONE!
Happened just a few days into SPRING!
Outside under the old oak tree with birds singing!
Seems I have been LIVING outside my BODY for YEARS!
A STONE or TEARDROP calcified in MY HEART.
I had LEFT my body since the age of 15 or 16 years of age.
I have been having a GOOD TIME.
I want to get back into my body, but am unable.
I am in NEED of DEEP LOVE.

AS most of you know I had a visit with a CARDIOLOGIST on March 28,th,who was recommended from one of MY READERS HERE!
Rumor had it he liked Carrot Cake so I made a Carrot Cake with cream cheese frosting with a dash of lemon juice from my lemon tree.
FIRST THING he said to me, “YOU LOOK FAMILIAR”.I told him what town I lived in and he lives about a mile away!Next I told him I had heard he likes Carrot Cake.He looked PERPLEXED!
I explained the BLOG and that I had a READER who knew someone who had gone to him years ago.
Than I continued on with my HEALTH.
He was worried about getting the china plate back to me!
As you can tell
WE HAD A FEW THINGS IN COMMON.
HE LISTENED to me talk.
HE LISTENED TO MY HEART.
HE MADE AN ATTACK PLAN.
I left his office a VERY HAPPY person.
The headaches are still lingering even if I am on this Heavy duty medication.Need to give it more time.The GOOD NEWS is NO MORE EPISODES.
It has been 16 days since my last one.
