Hallo Maria, my name's Martina and I'm from Italy (so, sorry for my english, it's ages since i last studied it seriously!). I've "found" your blog on Federica's blog (sweet as a candy) and then, found you wonderful home pohotographed on an italian magazine ("Casa Chic") last month, and decided to come here and visit you, 'cause i think you blog, you home, your family, everything is simply wonderful.
So i guess i'll come here very often, just to look at you wonderful pics... thank u very much for everything,

Hi Maria,
I just wanted to stop by and say I loved the feature in Romantic Homes of your blog, just fabulous. And I also wanted to congratulate you on the up and coming book by FiFi with your home on the cover! It looks just beautiful, I can't wait until it comes out!
Are you still planning on opening an online shop soon? I would love to see your treasures!
Have a lovely day.
