What's so special about this little cluster of poppies? They aren't just ANY poppies, they are the poppies on the side of the road that leads to Frances Mayes house in Cortona, Italy. Remember Frances Maye from Under the Tuscan Sun?

We walked to her house when I was in Cortona two years ago. Such fun- I definitely have plans to go back to Cortona someday!

Roses, Daisies, Fresh Flowers, Inspire, Creative Life, Rampini Pottery, Raddah, Italy, Beautiful Life,30 Day Flower Challenge with Mindset Coach Kimberly Conrad



A lovely little assortment in one of my favorite vessels. I purchased this Rampini Pottery pitcher two years ago from the home of it's creation in Raddah Italy. We visited the Rampini workshop, I say workshop rather than factory, because it was a lovely little cottage with a workshop behind where about six ladies sit on stools and hand paint each piece of pottery, before it is fired in their large kiln. The patterns are beautiful, but I chose this solid colored piece to use in my dining room with flowers of glorious colors.They shipped it home for me, and I was so afraid it would not make it in one piece....but.....it did!!!
