A TUSCAN GARDEN LUNCHEON
This antique Italian wrought iron table with weathered carrera marble top has been set with tableware from various European countries.
My favorite mouth blown bubble glasses from Biot, France. I have been to this glass blowing shop on the Cote d'Azur, several times, and am always enchanted by the quality of the bubbled glass and the warm colors the artisans achieve.
Our little cream cow, which we brought back from our honeymoon in Portugal.
Venetian mouth blown glass cruets for oil and vinegar are just the most gorgeous cobalt blue - especially with the sun shining through them. (Just look at the beautiful blue shadows they cast!) These came with the terra cotta colored glass stoppers, and I think they go so well with my Italian dishes, as they combine the two colors.
French salt and spice dishes from Emile Henry.
Hand painted Italian soup/pasta bowls, which we special ordered in San Gimignano, a charming and amazing "city" in Tuscany. Months later, just when we had forgotten all about them, a package arrived with eight different bowls - each one is completely unique and intricate. The pearl handled flatware is French.
This cute little double leaf server, with faux twig handle, is Portuguese.
