In the small town where I live, there are several houses which were builded in early 900. I started appreciating their beauty only recently and now I find they have a delicate grace...

Here in Italy, summer is progressing with warm and sunny days and I happen to spend my time strolling and looking around. I love these lazy days in which I can enjoy tiny pleasures as the fresh morning breeze or my daily coffee...
I have plenty of time to dedicate to my hobbies and the purse you can see is something I made myself last year but I had never used until now because I never comleted it.
It is a crocheted bag with an embroidery on the front side ( that I use as a pocket to keep in handy my keys and sunglasses ).
Last week I have changed handles and put these bamboo ones which I find beautiful...
To remain to floral theme I am wearing a pair of pink earrings and my glass necklace ( which I am overusing! )
A light, cotton dress is everything I need in summer: no cardigan, no jacket, nothing more until autumn!
The bag is beautiful! I have some bamboo handles that I haven't decided what I want to make with them. Enjoy the summer weather :)ReplyDelete
Great! You can start making a bag...( and if you finish it, remember to share! )ReplyDelete
Your city must be beautiful, like most Italian cities. I love the LWD, little white dresses, are gorgeous and you will see beautiful and elegant with them. That cute bag, you're a great artist. Your earrings are great and you are very well. I take it you say goodbye until after the summer, will not post more posts?ReplyDelete
I love your comment, Josep. My bag has been in my closet for over a year because I didn't like it, so I am glad you find it cute. And finally. . . I am going to post during the summer, but you will probably see me just wearing light simple dresses as the one I am wearing in this post because here is getting hotter and hotter!ReplyDelete
I just love old architecture...Your bag is lovely. You are very talented..ReplyDelete
If you love old architecture you would like Italy! I like making stuff. . .ReplyDelete
Oh Dan, your handbag is beautiful. You have created a treasure. I love the photo where you showcase it with the glorious old home. Early 900! One of the pleasures of visiting Europe is experiencing the history and architecture. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
You look lovely in your simple white dress. The white looks marvelous against your skin tone.
Hi Sue, I have been recently to the sea in Liguria and I am a lillte tanned.That's why you see the contrast between my skin and the white of my dress. Europe is really the Old Continent and an American eye can note it at first sight!ReplyDelete
I love your post today.ReplyDelete
It's great to enjoy the wonderful old buildings in your city, cafes, free time, the sun and heat.
Again the summer has come suddenly.
I really like your bag, is a work of art.
The bamboo handles you are phenomenal.
And your white dress simple, fresh and well cut, very elegant.
You look beautiful.
Dear Curra, your comment is so kind! I think that happyness is in little ordinary things and I try to enjoy every little moment in life. . .ReplyDelete
Don't worry about overusing your necklace. I stil like seeing it. Lovely with those earrings and the bag. Ties everything together. Of course I like the dress (Max Mara again). It is not my white dress from Sportmax, but we are getting close.ReplyDelete
The bag is beautiful. My goodness what a lot of work. I skipped this sort of work immediately when I left school.
Yes Greetje, our white dresses share the same style ( and I love yours! ).ReplyDelete
The opposite happened to me with crochet: I started only recently! ( but I am not very good at. . . )
For somebody who is not very good at crochet, you are doing a heck of a job. Honestly, it looks so good.Delete
And now I am making a new one in light green raffia, wich I am going to use on the beach. . . if I can finish it in time!Delete
Perhaps you can make a living out of it. I would pay for the white necklace you made...Delete
Are you serious? If you like something I make, just ask me...Delete

That handbag is a gleaming, gorgeous work of art (not to mention the sort of piece that has "instant family heirloom" written all of it) - you are immensely talented, dear Dan.ReplyDelete
Chic, wonderful summertime ensemble - you're my new Italian fashion muse. :)
Hi Jessica, the summer here is becoming quite hot,and I have to store my cardigans and jackets for a while. I am trying "to keep my style" wearing just a cotton dress or a linen shirt ( but it isn't always so easy!). It is a pleasure for me to read every one of your so special comments...and it is very nice to be your Italian fashion muse!Delete
Love your cute dress, and gorgeous smile. I want your baga, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhReplyDelete
hi Sacramento, a gorgeous smile...what a cute thing to notice!Delete
Beautiful bag! It make so special a kind of simple (although noble) dress.ReplyDelete
Summer in Italy is too hot for me sometimes, however, I enjoyed evenings with a glass of prosecco!
Quite hot indeed! A chilly glass of prosecco: a great wine with some sweets . . .Delete
I love your look and your cute bag! Kisses.ReplyDelete

Thanks, dear Ann. I like smiling people, and I always smile. The closeup photo is dedicated to all my dear followers. . . ( even if I find myself a little funny there!)Delete
Beautiful summer outfit. The earrings look nice coordinating with the purse...which I'm so impressed you made yourself. I like the bamboo handles too.ReplyDelete
That purse has required a lot of work, so I am happy you like!ReplyDelete
Very pretty and I LOVE the bag!!!ReplyDelete
Oh, Lady! You look great with that beautiful dress, you are right, you do not need anything else. But I have to admit that I'm dying for that beautiful bag! It's the most beautiful bag I have ever seen! Love, love it!ReplyDelete
