Chia and I spent the weekend at our friend’s place picking olives from her little grove in the countryside.
We spent 3 hours the first day, and 3 hours the second day to obtain one box of olives about 3×2 feet. We received 4 bottles of oil, which is the freshest I have ever tasted!
Now back in Florence I am receiving lots of orders for the Tesori Italiani holiday gifts. The tea towels with the olive pattern and the olive wood utensils are even more special to me now!

I will be shipping orders from Seattle when I return Nov. 20.
