And then there are all the other valuables in life; Love ♥ and Sex, Happiness and Laughter. Besides blogging, pardon me.🙂 Let me introduce a few very special persons and great bloggers who know how to celebrate the little things in everyday life. Lovely people and beautiful bloggers, always  ready to inspire and lift us up and put a smile on our face.
Please let me know if you have some beautiful ♥ bloggers on your blogroll, I’ll pass them on.

  3. Thank you for that. Poictures speak quickly to the busy and are a delight. All good, but I did particularly like Lady Fi and Walking with a Smacked Pentax. Decided to Follow which I don’t usually have time for. Thanks again.

  4. Dear Dina,

    Thanks also for introducing us to your selection of fellow bloggers!

    • Dear Dina,
      Since it is their flagship Barbera, it is the priciest option of the three… However, I can tell you that the prices of the store you found are pretty good if you bear in mind that the Pomorosso 2009 (which by the way was a fabulous vintage) in Italy sells for about EUR 36…
      If you prefer a more inexpensive option, why don’t you give L’Avvocata a try: it is not the Pomorosso, but still a very enjoyable Barbera in my view at a fraction of the price.🙂
      Have a wonderful weekend!

    • Dear Stefano,
      I agree, a flagship has it Price and compared to other flgships I supose it’s alright..🙂
      I’ll take your advice and look out for L’Avvocata. I’ll shout a toast to you; you’ll hear me across the Pond, well Siri and Selma will be assisting me of course.🙂
      Skål!🙂

What’s for sure is that I’ll do my best to express the beauty I can see around me and share it with all of you…and especially with my “talent scout”, Dina…My dear Dina…THANK YOU for this dance of feelings and emotions…never thought blogging could bring me all this!!!!!!
