La Dolci Vita

How is every body? Seems like I've been away for ever. We are having a real cold snap here in the Midwest. I'm grateful to be able to stay inside. All the schools around here are closed because of the cold. I don't remember schools being closed when it was cold when I was in school do you? The weather reports really seem to vary with some reporting the temperature to be 7 degrees and another reporting 12 below at the airport, not wind chill but temp. Hum very strange.....
Any way, I've been fluffing things up around here after being up north for the better part of last week helping the kids. I've been clearing out the clutter and enjoying the clear surfaces and open spaces. My inspiration for the fluff up has been my husbands Italian heritage. I dug out all my decorating books that referenced Italian design and set about making a few changes using what we already had.
Thanks for coming by! I promise to get around to visiting soon.


  1. Very cold here too, Sue. It was 12 this morning. Yuck.

    I think all of us are fluffing and moving things around. It's fun. :)

  3. I Sue! Glad you're back filled with inspiration! I'm doing the same thing 'fluffing'! I guess after Christmas we get the fluffing bug! Can't want to see what you've fluffed!

    I love your mom's home. I go back
    and look at the design to pick up new ideas. Why don't you print a
    layout of your mom's home, so we can get more ideas on the kitchen.
    Just a real simple one.
