I loved this scene so much I used it for one of the Tuscany Villages Notebooks. The notebook can be seen and bought here

The design on this 1541 door surround is beautiful. Nearly 500 years old.

This is such a fab idea for up-cycling Andirons that are no longer needed for the open fire. I have placed a stuffa into my fireplace making my pair redundant so I must thank this proud gardener for the idea.

A pair of demijohns decorate the side of this Tuscan village house.

 

Casoli's quaint church/chapel.

 

 I'm in love with the pattern in this glass. I don't normally see it here the Tuscan mountain villages.

 

 

An old laundry block beside a mule track leading in and out of the village. Can you imagine riding your mule up and down these steep steps back in the day??? It would be such a laugh trying.

I love it when the village retains its old weathered doors. Modern doors are never the same in rustic villages like this.
