Those of you who have been following me for YEARS might remember this from 2018!
Your Contessa in a CAFTAN from BALI and BANKSY BOY playing peek a BOO with the air drying sheets from ROUGH LINEN!
IT recently RAN across MY PHONE in a MEMORY from GOOGLE!
DO you LIKE Those MEMORIES They CREATE or would you be HAPPY not to receive another communication?
Since you already have the photos in YOUR CLOUD!
I pay $2.99 each month for my cloud storage anyone else PAY?
I have NO IDEA how that happened but if I went to cancel it you know it will be an ORDEAL……and what if I lose MY PHOTOS!
Let’s NOT even GO there!
I did a little bit of shopping recently!
Hanging out waiting for THE ITALIAN to come home can be dangerous!
I had seen these on HOUSE OF FISHERS instagram site.
SOMETHING SAID INQUIRE………SO I DID AND HERE THEY ARE ON MY LOBES!
They HALED from PARIS!
They look like my ANGELA CAPUTI bracelets!!
I had a friend in FLORENCE, MARY who had an eyeglass chain that I loved it came from ANGELA CAPUTI!
I had NO IDEA who that was…….so she took me to HER SHOP!
DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE I WENT!Drawer after drawer filled with COSTUME Jewelry with FABULOUS COLORS…….
Come to find out My Blogging Buddy SANDRA SALLIN knew exactly WHO SHE WAS.
THIS IS NOT A PHOTOGRAPH it is A PAINTING BY SANDRA………she taught ART at UCLA once upon a time!
Now she is an INSTAGRAM STAR at the AGE of 80!
TAP on her name above and GO SEE………if you adore makeup and a REAL DOWN TO EARTH BEING YOU WILL ENJOY her chats with BEAUTY EXPERTS from around the world!
This was our coffee machine………..But for CHRISTMAS we decided to GET A NEW ONE!
We had ALWAYS bought them USED.This was our third one in 27 years………..
WE HAD TO WAIT FOR APRIL FOR IT TO ARRIVE.
They are not inexpensive as they are made for restaurant use.
When we had a repair THE ITALIAN would go buy the part and fix it himself.
He is GOOD AT THAT KIND OF THING!
But long story SHORT the dealer left the area so we bought from MISTER COFFEE in OAKLAND where THE ITALIAN has been buying our coffee for YEARS!I said GOOD BYE to the LA SPAZIALE and welcomed the NEW FAEMA MACHINE!
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
There is less space for cups and sugar up top which annoys me but when we built this corner the husband built in or framed a three shelf space to the right where the painting and print are located.The painting has to go as the STEAM will ruin HER!
SO that was GOOD PLANNING A LONG TIME AGO………..now we need to push it out and fine this paint color!
How easy will that be?
I ‘ll let YOU KNOW!
I have an AMAZING RECIPE for a PASTA SAUCE coming up at the end of the month as my GAL for AGELESS STYLE HALES from ITALY!SO, I made it for EASTER so I could tell YOU MYSELF HOW GOOD IT IS!I even ate the GLUTINOUS PASTA!Which by the way there is a PILL you can take called GLUTEN DIGEST if you know you will be eating a NO~NO!My girlfriend from High School told me about it and I will be forever grateful.TAP if you want to see the bottle HERE.
THEODORE the HUNTER………
EVERY DAY he brings me a GIFT!
Leaves it under my chair.
The MEOW is VERY DIFFERENT from the HELLO MOM I’m HUNGRY MEOW!
Every morning I LOOK!
Today saw NOTHING so sat down and went about my reading on the computer……Only to find him MUNCHING AWAY HOURS LATER!
Under my feet!
I will SPARE you the details………lets just say I had TO LEAVE and GO OUTSIDE!
HOW DO YOU GET A CAT TO STOP DOING THAT?
I buy him THE BEST FOOD and he always has FOOD AVAILABLE.
I’m ready to put HIM up for ADOPTION!
THESE ARE BLOOMING THIS MONTH!
AS WELL AS THESE!
DOWN here in the compost pile!
LUCKY ME I HAD A COUPLE OF VISITORS this month!
PLUS, I GOT MY FIRST VACCINE ON SATURDAY!
Hope you are all doing well……..
SPRING is coming we can feel it, but a cold front has popped back into CALIFORNIA
