In her own words...
"Yes! That would be me if I had to describe my living quarters! That's the epitome of what my life is about! I love everything over the top. Glitter, color, gold, velvet, brocade, mirrors, moulding and so much more. Gorgeous settings tucked here and there......... I have been told my house looks like a stage set! What does not make it to the shop stops at home to be added to the assortment or perhaps one should say collection of sorts. Refer to it as you wish........... some might call it a mess others have referred to it as a Tuscan Villa. I myself like to think of it as my haven. A place where children and animals share the magic! There is not a lack of eye candy or props or accessories. I just need the visual to live my LIFE and fulfill my own NEEDS!"

As soon as we turned up this street we knew this had to be the "villa"
As we made our way up the walk we could see that the windows had been thrown open and the most gorgeous Italian music began to fill our ears.
Our senses were being awakened and delighted with each step...
And just like that we were transported and
immersed into the wonderful world and imagination of La Contessa!
I felt giddy!
There was so much to take in.
Yet, this house was definitely a home...
A very special home...
one like no other.
La Contessa and her Italian husband had made it completely their own.
More to come...
