A Famous Wedding in Verbania...

Arriving I realize... I do not have the SECRET wedding invitation... I believe it is in MY sketch book which I forwarded on to a vault in Milano... I do remember it said something about a beautiful villa... ooooh nooooo...It appears as we fly in via a helicopter thanks to PETUNIA... there are villas everywhere... even on islands... Pretty place here... shall we go in...
Stunning.. but EMPTY... le sigh... I would like to stay here... Ooooh how I ADORE the colour green... I think I could live here... lovely reflection... but I don't see anyone...

Pretty stairway to walk down in a bridal gown... I don't see a bride...No boats docked outside... I think we should keep looking ...This place looks quiet... but I hear something in the distance...Ooooh a harpist... love the sound of a harp...a set table and some bubbly... things are looking up... a wedding cake...
party favors... I'm getting sooooo excited...


Look a bride and groom... I need binoculars... I can't tell if this is the right wedding... I do hope so... this champagne is sooo tasty... I would hate to be drinking all the wrong bubbly...

Ooooh I see the appetizers coming around... let's grab a seat at that table... I say we stay awhile and then run off to visit other Tablescape Thursday participants over at Between Naps on the Porch...

Oooops... almost forgot... there is a Fifi Flowers art Giveaway over @ Tip Junkie's site!!!

ENJOY your day... tomorrow we head to Milano to pick up MY sketch book and look for FASHIONS of course! (Post will be up 8:00pm PT... I will put your link up as soon as possible)

Love tagging along with you in Italy, Fifi.

Millie said...

Oh Fifi how exciting! My friend from Adelaide flew off to Milano on Sunday for a conference, maybe you'll run into him, he he! He's a real party animal, so don't you & Petunia get involved with him or you'll get in big trouble!

Oh Fifi, I don't how much more of this I can take...I was suppose to be in Italy this summer and it just didn't work out for me. Your posts are making me so jealous. (But in truth, I'm really enjoying them) :)
