Local Artisans that I adore ~ Donata Zan

Well, what a whirlwind this past month has been for me and my little family. We have been sick for the past month and finally I got answers to why my son is always so sick with the help of a private doctor, that being said, I wasn’t able to be online much as if any of you who have children know that when they are sick, you don’t have much free time and when they finally sleep,well you are pretty destroyed too. 

Anyhow, I did have a chance to have a tea break with the lovely Donata Zan, owner of Acqua di Vetro.
The lovely Donata Zan :) Captivating beauty!

Treviso – fior di Citta

This past weekend over 100,000 visitors came to see Treviso celebrating the festival of flowers.

Around every piazza, every hidden corner , along the mura (wall), along the cobblestone roads you’ll see flowers galore.

In my personal opinion flowers have a way to make life itself a bit brighter. I hope this is a start to a new tradition in my charming and quaint city that I simply adore.
