  16. Hi Martina,

    Have a wonderful trip to Italy ... love the cute Vespa photo.


  17. My sweet Martina! YES, I am having a FANTASTIC SUMMER! It is busy with activity such as painting my studio and watching my garden get MESSED UP by sawdust as the builders build a beautiful patio!!! But all of this has to be done by MONDAY as I receive an old friend into my home, who I have not seen in over 37 years!!!

    I so hope your summer warms up a bit; we have had the most LOVELY SUMMER SO FAR!


  18. Hope you are having a wonderful time dear! Sounds like heaven! xx -Taj

  19. Martina! I can not even imagine the ability to take a 'day trip' to Italy!!!! Now, for me, I can take a day trip into Seattle, or to Whidby Island, but the sound of that sentence just does nothing for anyone! te-heeee!

    I know you are enjoying the beauty! Gasp!!!

  20. J`adore la foto!!!!:O)
    Have a nice day!!!
    xxx Maria xxx
