Music Giveaway Winner and What's New?

what's new?
the festa in our town over the weekend...can you see all the people? 
I could hardly move.

This August has just flown by and although, I'm posting regularly, I do have to say that I'm sorry that I haven't had the time to comment as much as I'd like on your blogs because, not only have I been concentrating on my Etsy shop, I just got back from our mini-vacation down south near Otranto, which is just beautiful, but heaving with people and traffic. This is the time of year when most Italians take their holidays. It literally is wall to wall people on the beaches and in towns by the sea. There's so much going on in Italy during the summer. I shall post some pics for you next week to give you a little peek 
at my life in southern Italy.

On another note, thankfully, I'm not peeling after my sunburn....thanks to the Ikea after sun lotion I've been applying at least 2 or 3 times per day. I really think it works. 

My husband has a couple weeks off during this time of year and we tackle one room per year to re-do in our home....this way, we don't get overwhelmed and stressed by the enormity of the job. Plus, it makes economic sense. So, please bear with me....
August is definitely a busy month.
