Ispirazione!

Photos taken in 2005 and 2006 during our visits to Bella Italia. From upper left - Mic e Sylvia con Olivero e Isotta; leone da Farfa in Sabina; Jim della tre fontane; il poggio cotto; pavimenti; pianta; Sannini di Imprunetta; terracotta di Imprunetta; casetta per le lettere.
(jim's note) We researched and collected items since 1999 when we purchased the land, knowing that we would be building our Tuscan farmhouse some day. In our travels, our Italian family friends, Michelangelo and Silvia even helped us in naming our house. Il Poggio Secco. (The Dry Hill) It's been a real fun journey along the way. Soon we will see the fruits of our collecting and sacrificing come full circle. The goal is to be in the house before Christmas. Woo Hoo!
