{Antiques around the city}

Summertime is the perfect period to visit Antiques and (as you know it) I really love them. I’ve been to Sarzana, in Liguria, where in August, for all the month, every summers, the city became an old market at open sky.

Hundreds of stalls all over Sarzana, an old city situated only few kms from the coastline and from the Tuscany’s border. This little village is full of history and influences from differents culture and it is a very nice place to visit.
We found a lot of interesting things, real antiques furniture or just handmade goods. The inhabitants open the door of their houses and offered a lot of products and amazing things: old books, frames, vintage jewels or home made foods as jams, cookies…

At the end we stopped in a very nice restaurant. “Indaco” is a bio- vegetarian restaurant with an asiatic touch…Cous cous, seitan, vegetables…so good!

and then it’s me…

Have a nice weekend…See you tomorrow with others adventures….

Before to go, let me thank Kris, my lovely friend from a very yummy blog “Behold the Metatron“. She’s from New York City and on her profile description she say:
“Behold the Metatron is your link to everything from the fabulous to the ridiculous: Entertainment, Food, Fashion, Going Green, and more! I have also created NYC Stakeouts. You pick the place or activity in NYC… and I will stake-it-out for you by providing photos and commentary!”..she knows what she is talking about…go check her blog… it’s worth!

She gaves me the “Moonlight Blog Award”…

Moonlight in this case represents the glorious brain-sharpening, mood-enhancing experience one feels when reading or seeing something inspirational in other blogs. Something that sets the tone for the rest of your day, puts a smile on your face, stimulates your work, or makes you feels awesome about life. It is not often one feels wonderful. But some days, some blogs do just that.
I want to give “moonlights” to all the special blogs I encounter.
There are no obligations attached to the recognition. But if you feel like it, you can pass it on to whoever has also given you that something special, what in Spanish they call “eso”, or “it”. Whatever “it” is that lifts your spirits and helps you to up your mental game.

This award made my day and it’s the best thing I can desire…to leave a smile on your face!
Do you think there is something better? I’m really happy when you leave comments and when you visit me. I really hope you like to read my blog in the same way I like to write it.
So now it’s me to choose to whom to give this award. I give this award to all of you, to all my favs blogs…
It’s so unfair to choose just some of you because you are my inspiration evereyday. You give me something in different way…

This is for you… please pass this award to whom makes you smile! I won’t say your name cause you know who you are and I’m afraid to forget some of you…so all my followers, all the blogger/friends you deserve this award!

    Hey Gaia!

    It's probably last minute but the feast of San Gennaro is in full swing in NY's Little Italy this weekend through next weekend. The weather is iffy today as well. Yesterday was so dreary. A true taste of the worst of Fall in my opinion! But I plan on hitting up the festival tomorrow.

    But, there's nothing better than visiting NY during Christmas time. There's just so much shopping, good deals, and everyone is happier. Oh, and ice skating!

    Another fun idea is to come to NY on Halloween. The parade in the village is unbelievable and the parties and haunted houses are everywhere! I hope to get a post going about that too.
