My Italian Treasures

Everyone asks me, "What did you buy in Italy this time?"
Let's begin with the food items: 00 Flour, tuna, rice, polenta, balsamic honey


This is why we pack ziplock bags. NO flour in the luggage!


I bought a few Christmas gifts (6), but can't post those!

Wine, asiago cheese and lots of pepperocino (whole, crushed and ground).


A matarello and a gnocchi tool:



Of course a Furla purse. I love the taupe and rust with brown handles. It goes with tons of my fall/winter clothes.


Sides can be open to show rust leather and make more room...


or snapped shut for a sleeker shape.


My ceramic veggies should be here soon. There is a new Verona arena charm on my Italy charm bracelet. I also bought the newest Slow Food Guide. A GREAT haul!

Great stuff, Palma! Love the Furla bag, it is gorgeous... Just a question: approximately how long is the rolling pin? I want to look for a similar one here, and I've found one online that is 23 inches but I think that might be too short, I remember the one we used with Rafaella and Francesca was longer than that, I think...

Matarello is 31 inches!


I enjoy seeing your treasures. It's funny how we all seem to consider food among our treasures. The purse is nice...you'll look sharp carrying it.
I do need to mention, I really like your countertop. I know this doesn't have anything to do with the post, but I have to say it is beautiful.
I look forward to hearing more about your trip.

Love, love, love the Furla bag! I am looking forward to being in Bologna in January for the sale at Furla. I always have to buy a watch and a bag there.

want me to bring you some 00 flour? I found a TON at that cool Italian bakery and store last Sunday.

How I love Furla purses!


What treasures, Palma! I did not buy a new bag on my June trip to Italy and am now kicking myself.....

Be still my heart -- gotta love Furla!
