Sogno di Italia

Yes, I often dream of Italy, and not only at night! Here are a few daydream places I have found recently to think about before we take off in 27 more days:

I can completely see myself living in this charming yellow kitchen outside of Cortona!

Maybe you would like to join me in this sweet little villa in Trequanda?

Or how about living in this cute little Umbrian farmhouse outside of Todi?

I bet you would come visit me and join me for a glass of prosecco on the terrace...

or a capuccino in the "conservatory".

Since we are dreaming... I'll show you my favorite Umbrian fantasy property that is ready to move into. Just follow me!

I have a "thing" for courtyards! Can you imagine some antipasti and vino here?

Or perhaps you would prefer this view at sunset?

Come on in the kitchen door.

I can live with green!

The painting has to go, but there is an inviting living room,

and a charming family room.

There is even a a cozy "library" to settle down with a good book.

Dining room...of course!

The three bedrooms (one with a fireplace) are also lovely!
How about a dip in the pool before we leave my fantasy?

As soon as we win the lottery, I'll be packing up the ceramics!

Kendall:

I could be happy in any one of those homes. Mississippi has no lottery so I am out of luck.(sigh)

You're torturing me!

I'll take any of them! Please?

Rebecca:

Torture is right! That looks so nice after staring out my window at all the "May Gray" we're having.

Shelagh (SJ):

I love all those properties!!
I often surf through rental sites, looking for the perfect rental for "next time".
Can't go this year as I have just had a knee replacement; but I hope you both have a wonderful trip!!

sandrac:

I'm in -- now, how many more investors do we need?!!

Barb Cabot:

You have just made my day!
Love it all... one of my fave quotes:
"Why stop dreaming when you wake up?" ...dreaming is delicious. TGIF girlfriend!

It took me a while to figure out where you were getting all of these photos :)

I'd be happy to chip in!!

Ahhh, just buy my house! You know it has a cook's kitchen and right now eating on the terrace is eating in a rose room where all the walls are in full flower. PLus I have great neighbors who take care of things when you aren't home. Best of all, you won't need to win the lottery to pay for it. It costs about your decade's pashmina budget...
Actually, those interiors are not very Italian!
