The paper shop owner had quite an adventure getting the hand made wooden pens from the artisan, driving out into the Tuscan countryside where he lives. The pens will be ballpoint, and not fountain pen as pictured. I just love a beautiful pen, and this one promises to be very special. I am giving one to my husband for Valentine’s Day, and plan to steal it later!
I am giving one of the olive dishes to my physical therapist as a thank you for her squeezing me into her schedule. Bad back for me, and she really helps it feel better. I have to be in top shape for the spring season in Florence!
I will be giving note paper and wine stoppers for several people who need a little something to brighten the day. It has been a tough year for everyone. I am so thankful for the many blessings in my life.
