New Additions to the Family...


No, not that kind...yet.  


Meet "Rena".  Short for Renato and named after the fabulous ceramist in Portovenere.


He's the new center wall piece in Casa Guerrera.


And you all remember that out landlord stole our table and chairs???  

Well, we decided to replace them, in a big way...


200 kilos of Carrara white marble and some good looking "iron for all seasons" chairs and base.


Good lord, this stuff is expensive here! But it is so nice to finally feel as if "the best dump in Liguria" may not be such a dump anymore. We love our new additions!  What do you think???

il pesce mi piace molto, la scelta dei colori e le sfumature di blu le trovo molto azzeccate; così come molto bella è la veduta del bersò (pergolato) è meravigliosa...che rampicanti sono? sono viti?

The fish is a beautiful work of art! I found your blog by chance and will be following your adventures here. I already have my ticket to Rome next spring. I can't wait after seeing the photos you have posted.
