Future Plans

I'm already planning my first giveaway. Realistically it will not happen until November. That's when I next plan to travel to the US which will simplify my giveaway in many ways. If an unexpected trip pops up in the meantime, it may happen sooner...

I've decided 2 things I will definitely include are a pack each of my favorite cookies. Do you know Mulino Bianco? They make THE BEST store bought cookies in my humble opinion. Our little island is blessed, a few times a year, to receive a container load of italian goods that grace the shelves of our supermarket.

Canestrini & Baiocchi - yummy!

When I started this blog, I almost invested some money in it. I wanted a visually pleasing blog and spent hours researching designers and designs. I then decided that I was jumping the gun and that I should perhaps see if anyone was interested in reading this before I spent any money. So I made a rule in my head that my blog budget would be less than or equal to the number of followers I had. So right now I couldn't afford a signature, but I'm not getting discouraged. I've met some lovely fellow bloggers in the past month and I'm happy about that. Should I remain unpopular, I might just send each one of you a pretty package in November.

Hope your September has had a good beginning. We had rain today - that is a VERY good thing. Hopefully it's just a taste of what the rest of the month has in store.

Ciao bellas!

Why are foreign cookies the best ones from the store?

I just want to say I LOVE your blog. (I found you via Llama Tales!)

Though I know little (read: very little, hardly nothing) about signatures, blog backgrounds, etc. I'd be happy to share what I've found for you.

I just created my own background and am going to make my signature soon - all for free. It really is easy!

Anyway, take care!

I've never even heard of those cookies. You have me quite intrigued.
