Back from hols with some exciting news..

We have just returned from our family holiday in Italy. We are totally in love with the country, the food, the wine and the people!  We are also totally in love with the landscape and architecture, we stayed in Umbria, next to Tuscany. 

Fields of sunflowers are out at the moment stretching as far as the eye can see..

The weather was changable and there were some magnificent thunder storms that you could see rolling towards you from over the hills. Mixed with the sunset, they produced some magical colours and scenes that made me feel quite humble at the beauty of it all.

And most exciting was this sunset taken one beautiful evening...

When we took a walk up to our new adventure, what will be our home away from home, Hubby's dream. An old farmhouse with beautiful views of the valley. 
The structure is not great so the whole building will have to come down and will be rebuilt but all useable roof tiles, stone, beams etc will be set aside to be re-used in the new house. If you have an interest in property renovation then take a look a hubby's blog where he is going to record our journey with lots of photos.

Apologies for the non crafting post, let me know where in the world you love to visit!

I went to Tuscany, and stayed in a 300 year old farm house that looked exactly like your tear down. We stayed in the chianti region. great pics.
