So what did I see that inspired me on this trip! Well all the "have too's" when roaming in Rome! The Vatican city, museum & the Sistine Chapel, we walked to Colosseum as the sunset on ancient Rome, a spot of anti-pasti and a cheeky beer Morretti sat on the Piazza outside the Pantheon, tossed a coin over the shoulder into the Fontana de Trevi, and climbed the Spanish steps to look out across the city!
We also had a rather memorable cappuccino in a little cafe called Caffe Fasse, where we met a older Italian man who we could have sat with for hours and listened to the history of Rome - who needs tour guides when you take time for a coffee with the locals! He was more interested in the difference of the regional accents of myself and my friends!
It was a fantastic trip! A great chance to see great works of art by Michelangelo, Rafael & Bernini, and even historical philosophical texts of Aristotle! - I could totally have settled down in this city!

Another seller of this trip was the sunshine! Spring came a week early for me! But luckily it arrived at the Cherry Tree today too! And we had the door open as we gave the shop a good spring clean and got crafting for Easter! - If you haven't popped in for a while, come and visit us soon!
At the moment everything about Spring is getting me excited! Today I saw a bunch of Daffodils and couldn't stop myself eating a creme egg for the season! :)
So what have I got planned for Spring! Well I have some lovely weddings to complete over the next couple of weeks to take me right through to the end of April, but then I think emsOriginal will be taking a little time to refocus in May, Iv got some big plans for my card ranges and wedding styling and really want to take some time to concentrate on putting these plans into action so hopefully will be able to bring you a blog soon on what I plan to do!
For a sneak peak... here's somethings I've been buying ready for projects!
Speak to you soon!
