Sometimes smaller is better

I took my own little great escape last week to Roswell, to visit mi amici.
She has recently moved into her own little cottage and has decorated it to perfection!


It is so comfortable and so Gail!

It is a small older cottage....
but she proves it is not all about the size.She has used her favorite colors, and surrounded herself with comfort and chic style. This might be small~ but it is so perfect for her. She has collected so may memories during her travels to Europe. You can see she has style! She has a travel business, Gail"s Great Escapes.
I have been lucky enough to spend time with her in 'her' beautiful Montisi. In May I spent 2 weeks in the kitchen and helping her make her guests comfortable~ rough job!!
If you are interested in a week in Tuscany... I know just the person to call!
Ciao y'all,
Sandi

E~ maybe I could be your chef one day :-)
Char~ Gail would be the first to tell you it is decorated with a lot of IKEA things... and of course a few really special momentos.

Hi Sandy! Thank you so very much for your kind words on my blog today! I really appreciate them. =)

Thought you'd like to know my oldest boy (14 yrs) has been craving french fries with a certain seasoning this summer... =)

Thanks to Sandi and Friends for all the kind comments. Nice of Sandi not to show my messy closet or the dust bunnies under the chairs. It was a challenge to move from a large house to a small one, but I love it!

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

Gail~ what dust bunnies? We call those 'pets' at my house!

Do Gail & John Hecko have a blog about Montisi?
It'd be great to go when sandi is cooking. Sounds wonderful.
chiaro
