Wonderful book by Barbara Brear

I have bought this spell book from Barbara Brear. It is so beautifully made, it looks so real! On the outside it is covered with the thinnest leather. It is now on the wizard`s table in his cottage.

Weekend in Italy, and a souvenir from Rome

Last weekend my husband and I went to Italy. We traveled with two other couples. We spent the first day sightseeing in Rome, and three days in a small village an hour outside of Rome called Vasanello.

I kept my eyes open for miniatures, and in Rome I found this....

We saw the Trevi fountain....

had some tasty italian gelati...
stumbled upon a Valrhona shop and bought some chocolate....
and we visited the Colusseum.
In the small village of Vasanello we went for a walk, it was such a lovely and calm place.
On the wall in a restaurant I saw this "dollhouse"-picture. It was really pretty and well-made.
We also went to a vineyard for some wine-tasting and a lovely meal.
And of course I just had to try some real italian pizza! It was delicious!
Here`s the whole group at this wonderful little hidden gem of a restaurant, it was my favorite.
(me in the grey cardigan).
And this is another village where we had dinner one evening.

All in all a fantastic trip, I enjoyed every single moment! Nice people, calm surroundings and fantastic food!
