Yes I've been to Italy. Love it! Want to see more some day.

Jon and Kirsty Van Itallie said...

Kellie Christie said...

I haven't been to Italy, can you fit me in your suitcase??? Don't forget to keep an eye out for nice colourful vintage buttons for me.

Katherine Van Itallie said...

No i have been to Italy but hopefully one day i get to travel to see heaps of places.

Stacey Johnson said...

I have not been to Italy but would like to go one day....maybe when Chelsea is a bit older. Hope you get lots of inspiration for your creations there. xx

Michelle Holmes said...

I have never been to Italy unless you class watching it on tv or googling 

GemmaJoy said...

I haven't been and I'm so jealous and excited that you are going for 3 months.

maryana cole said...

No. But I would love to go, just love the Italian countryside and their food. <3

Sam Holland said...

Never been to Italy. Studied the language a little and enjoy the cuisine!
Love your products, cute and stylish without being too grown up :)

kk said...

I have and would love to go back but since I am so poor, the closest thing to Italy would be eating at Leichhardt.

April Manley said...

I have never been to Italy but i think i will get there one day !

I haven't been to Italy much to my Grandmother's disgust (sorry Nonna) but I cook pasta all the time for my family, especially my little girl "Charlotte" I call her "Carlotta" when I cook to make the mood fantastic!

I adore Lasange, Gnocchi and fresh Ravioli. My favourite sauces are Bolognaise and Boscaola.

Make sure you manage to try the wonderful food, because what we Aussies cook is nothing like traditional Italian food!

And don't forget to go to the market and cook yourself something really fresh!

Enjoy the trip and here's to a safe journey back home again:
"viaggio sicuro"

jc said...

Nope, never been to Italy, hopefully one day. Have a safe journey, God Bless.

I have been to Florence, loved it. Bought my first pair of Italian shoes there. Have a great time.

DD said...

Not yet but soon. My husband is from Calabria & has just inherited one third of his grandmothers house, so a perfect excuse for me to finally travel out of Melbourne!

Diana said...

NO, but I'd give my left arm to come with you. Italian men are gorgeous, and really know how to romance a woman.

Tiff said...

Yes I have :) It was amazing, lots of pasta!!

Paper Tree Design said...

Hi, I was lucky enough to see your beautiful stand at the BrisStyle markets on Saturday - your work is gorgeous. I have applied to join BrisStyle so I will see how I go....

I have been to Italy, however, I was a lot younger and would see and do totally different things if I had the opportunity to go again - 3 months sounds like heaven. Enjoy the food, shopping and wine.

Look forward to your next post. Michelle

Scurrette said...

Nope, never even been outside Australia. But I would desperately love to stowaway in your luggage :)

Enjoy your time!

Ali said...

Oh my goodness - I am seriously green with envy! I've been to Italy 3 times - my oldest friend lives there - and I LOVE it!! Florence is my favourite place (outside of Sardinia where my friend lives)> I'm planning another trip in 2012 - so long away! I'm sure you are going to have a fabulous time shopping - can't wait to see what you buy!
Ali :)

Alison said...

I'm planning my first trip now. It's a solo 3-week trip around Umbria and Tuscany.
No kids, no husband, no family... just me, my tenth-grade Italian, and a sense of adventure.
Wish me luck!
