Welcome home. Sorry it rained all the time.Glad you had a great time despite that Mary
HelloDespite the weather Tuscany is sublime at any time.. we went in May this year and it was cold and very stormy but stunningly beautiful too.. I think I was a Tuscan in a former life... ohh wishful thinking!I hope you have many beautiful memories of the place..Michelex
oh sophie I am so sad it rained for you, it just means Tom will have to take you when the weather is better lol. Looks like you enjoyed yourself, oh I would love to see a piccy of you in your puffa coat.Thanks or sharing I have loved carousels since a child and go on one whenever i see oneKaraxx
Ah, it looks wonderful. I long to go to Italy again. I love that first picture of the view from your balcony. Sorry to hear it rained. My Mum and Dad are in Venice this week and I fear it is raining on them looking at the forecast. So pleased you had a lovely time.
Welcome home Sophie! We have all missed your posts and were eagerly awaiting your return and all these beautiful photos! The carousel is gorgeous, they are so beautiful in Europe! Shame about the rain, but sounds like you had fun, such lovely memories for you :) Thanks for sharing your photos with us all, we soooo far away really appreciate it! There is really no place like home :) Jenn and Jacqui
Welcome Home Sophie!!! I finally remembered the name of the place I thought you'd like, lol but too late now. In case you go again, it was called Busati.In any case, I adore your photos even in the rain. The first time I went to Florence it was the middle of Winter, end of January and so cold but it's so beautiful it doesn't matter. It was just as beautiful the second time in September. The carousel photos are so beautiful! I love that the horses have big ostrich plumes on them! How divine!Oh I'm getting the itch to travel, and your pics aren't helping that itch!!!So glad you liked your time there, it is my favourite place to go, there's something magical about it and the Arno river at night is beautiful isn't it!Have fun catching up on your emails!Natasha : )
That carousel wasn't there a few weeks ago! I know just which piazza that is! I'm so glad that you had a good time despite the weather. Florence is just magical, isn't it? Sigh.....PS--so very glad that you enjoy the letters. They can be found in different fonts over here, so I'll keep looking for them!
WELCOME HOME!!! I'm so glad that you had a good time despite the weather.The pictures are great. Although I was hoping to see you in some of them. Will that happen later (patiently taps her foot)?We put the house back together as best as we could. Hope your neighbors aren't still mad. Hee hee!Love,Julie
The photos are beautiful Sophie, and I'm glad you had a good time, but am so glad you're back to post!! I've been checking your blog daily, much to my dismay. So was delighted to see your post today.Jacki
Wonderful photos, Sophie! I wish you'd had better weather, but still...You may know this already, but the Victoria photos of Practical Magic's kitchen are on the Amas Veritas site ~ http://www.amasveritas.com/In the "settings" area ~http://www.amasveritas.com/film/setting/index.htmlI have that Victoria somewhere~~~
I'm sorry you had lousy weather on your trip...but, Wow! what a trip!Thank you for sharing your photos of such a wonderful place! Your candid shots give us a little taste of the beauty and culture without having to experience the flight or customs. :)Welcome Home!Kimberly
I LOVE THE CAR!!! Mac said he'd be afraid to get on the highway in Italy in that ...they'd run him right over...the pictures are great!
Welcome home! The pictures are beautiful! I am sorry that it rained the whole time but am glad that you got to enjoy it still.
How beautiful, even with the rainy weather. This makes my fall trip pale in comparison!
Welcome back, We missed you!Now let me go read about your trip!
Welcome back, Sophie! Thank you for sharing your trip and photos with us - how much fun! I have never traveled to Europe, so it is always a treat to get to visit it through the lens of a friend's camera. "Someday" I am going to the UK! Saving my cash!!Love the little car and LOL about driving! Really!!?? You don't drive? My granny never drove either - scared her to pieces.The carousel is wonderful and I find it interesting that it is in the middle of town. How fun is that!? It sure beats the little rocking horse outside of a grocery store that you can ride for a piece of pocket change.Glad to hear that you made it back and had a wonderful time, despite the weather.Blessings to you,Becky
Hello Sophie,I'm so pleased you are back safe,and that you had a good time despite the weather.I love your photos,no need to appologise for them they are fab.I wish there were more shops like that over here,I loved the apples all stacked up.I don't drive either,I've had lessons but never passed my test.There is a story behind this but I'll let you know another time.Thanks for your good wishes,I am on the mend but it will be a long job.Hugs Kat xx
A big welcome home Sophie! It sounds like a really fun time and I think the rain and cold was part of the fun in the end. It gave you memories you would not have had otherwise. What a deal with the 7 euro coats! I love carousels too. Our wedding photos were taken on an 1890s Venitian two story carousel. It was later purchased by Clint Black who used it for a video he made. Good to be able to visit with you again.~~ Heidi ~~
Glad you had a lovely time if not cold time n Florence. It looks like you had a very different time to us. We could not find a hotel, so we ended up driving our hire car out of the city trying to find somewhere vaguely quite to get some sleep. The best thing about Florence was would of the Medicea (how do I spell that) summer houses just out of the centre. It was amazing away from the ques and a guided tour all to our us.I posted the pram picture, had to wait untill captain rupert felt happy about sharing his news.
It looks beautiful despite the rain. Glad it didn't spoil it too much and you still had a good time.Cathy X
Hello SophieWelcome home. What an amazing spot to visit no matter what the weather :-}. Your photos are lovely.
Welcome back, Sophie! It's good to hear you had a wonderful time, even if the weather was rainy!Loved the photos!Pat
Sorry it rained for you - but you can't help but have a good time in Florence. It's years since I've been there. Beautiful place. Love the yellow car.ciao
What a shame you had such poor weather - Jules and I got a couple of thunderstorms thrown into the mix but mostly it was hot and sunny. We went in September though. You'll have to go back again and see Florence and Tuscany in the sunshine.
Sophie,So glad to have you back home. Sorry about the rain. My daughter is on her honeymoon there right now. She called to say hi. It's raining, but it's still Italy.Your pictures are fab!!!Glad you had fun even though it rained.Thanks so much for your lovely comments about the wedding.I'm sure you are glad to be home sweet home.Rosemary

Welcome Home Sophie! Love your pictures. It rained on my last vacation also, but it's still exciting to be somewhere like that isn't it? Just a beautiful place!
Simply a romantic place... Love the picture of the carousel...the reflection of water on the granite makes it look like its floating. cheers, adla
Welcome home! Wow, I didn't realize how much I read my daily blogs until I realized that I always read yours first and of course you were gone! ha ha So just know that you were missed by all your adoring fans! Yeah that's it, Sophie's got her own blog fan club! ha ha Can't wait to read about all your memories because I'm traveling through them. ha ha ha Again, welcome home!!
Magical place!Thanks for sharing, glad I popped by! Friday is my big party for my 100th post, I do hope you are not too tired to stop in!xo,Melissa
Hi Sophie, Sorry to hear about the weather, my daughter's friend was there at the same time as you and she says it was freezing! However, the beauty of Florence can't be ruined by the cold, it looks lovely from your photos. So glad you had a good timeKim x
Oh, Sophie! Florence looks fabulous. I love the carousel, especially all lit up, it looks magical:) I'm glad you had a great time inspite of the weather.Also glad you are home safe and sound!Rhonda
Oh yummy! One of my favourite places in the whole world! Did you buy anything else other than coats? I could happily spend days on the Ponte Vecchio!
Beautiful photos Sophie,sorry it rained on you ,sounds like you had a good time anyway.Love the carousel!
Wow, Sophie, you make even the RAIN sound good! lol It all sounds perfectly lovely to me (except for those customs officials!). I'm glad you're back, safe and sound, and I'm glad you had such a wonderful time. Thank you again for the package...it was so much fun to open after such a sad week. Your timing just couldn't have been better.Kari
What a wonderful post! I am going to Tuscany this spring. The first 11 days of April...I can hardly wait!Penny
I'm glad you had a good time Sophie, despite the rain. I feel exactly the same way you do about returning home. It always looks a little different, and as you said, better than it did before. The "car" is very cute and if it was pink I could definitely see you in it. So happy you had fun and that you made it through customs and the flight - you brave soul you. I know you were really dreading that part. Glad to have you back safely!Alliewww.mycozyhome.typepad.com
Glad you're home safe and sound. Sounds like the trip was memorable. The photos are lovely, sorry it was so cold and rainy.
Hey, Sophie! It was good to hear from you this morning!Rhonda

Welcome home -- we missed you! Loved seeing your photos, especially Sophie's car!xoxo,Mary
My husband and I have been sitting here drooling over your photos! We've been wanting to go for such a long time. Maybe another 10 years of saving... So glad you had a wonderful time!! Blessings.. Polly
Italy has a special romance about it. Even in the rain!The pictures are lovely, I just want ot be there, now.X
Welcome home Sophie! I'm so sorry to hear that the weather was so icky! We're glad to have you back safe and sound!
Wonderful photos. I would love to go to Florence but, sadly, my husband isn't keen. I always look forward to coming home and pottering around amongst my own possessions again after I've been away.
What a beautiful blog, and *sigh* a beautiful trip! A destination we have always wanted to go to, but have not yet been is Florence! Thanks for taking us there with your photos!blessings, kari & kijsa
