Bona Domenega 

Happy Sunday/Buona Donenica and in Treviso dialect –  Bona Domenega!! 

Any plans for this gorgeous day? 

We are going for a hike in the montello with our two mini poodles. And in the afternoon, I’m not too sure. It’s suppose to be a scorcher today. 

 

I took this photo of one of my favorites sites in Treviso yesterday morning while I was at the farmers market. 

I love how there is new life surrounded by ancient buildings from thousands of years ago.

A chance to win jewelry from Murano 

I recently sat down with Donata Zan, designer and owner  of Acqua di Vetro.      

Donata and I met many months ago and instantly became friends. You know when you meet someone and you hit it off instantly, kinda like you’ve known them your whole life? Well, yes, that pretty much sums up our great friendship. 

Donata works in tourism by day and a jewelry designer by night. She recently showed me her new collection and I loved it! I told her we’ve got to do something. I want people to see what beautiful pieces she makes by hand, each piece is unique, no two are the same. What better way to introduce her new line then to have a contest. 

Being the sweetheart that she is, she decided to give away 3 sets of her newest collection to 3 lucky readers!! 

So, you guys are probably wondering what does she make? She creates necklaces, earrings, and rings made out of hand blown glass balls from Murano Italy and then she adds silk which she finds from the old vintage shops. 

There are 3 different sizes S,M,L. 

hand blown murano glass balls with delicatley placed silk..

There are only 3 steps to have a chance to win 1 of 3 sets.
