Flowers always brighten the greyest of days don’t they?!

When Christmas Day is over I’m always on a mission to get rid of the Christmas tree and pack away the baubles ...

...come on, I’m not the only one that feels like that..am I ?

(Perhaps it’s because my father kept the decorations up until Easter one year 😂😫)

But then I look around, and the rooms look so bare, so that’s the time to bring in a vase or two of spring flowers, unless you’re Chloe!

Chloe is lucky enough to live near @dutchmastersflowerwholesale.
Oh my, restraint is the word, so many beautiful flowers at wholesale prices. It has to be one of Chloes favourite places to shop.
As you can tell, she finds it difficult to ‘restrain’ herself to just one or two bunches, but so would I.

The Last Tree Of 2019!

Now we can relax as the olive harvest for 2019 is over.

The olives all lovingly picked by hand, and pressed at our local frantoio. Although the olive harvest is down this year, due to severe weather in the spring, the quality of the oil is very good....so not all bad.

So time for a well earned aperitivo🍷

The Olive Harvest At Casa Sant Elia

Back out again this morning to continue picking these beautiful fruits. I agree with Chloe, they do look like Cadbury mini eggs!

It’s a slow old job, but with the sun shining, and birds singing I can’t think of a better place to be😍

23/10/2019

I didn’t see the programme everyone’s been talking about on Sunday, during which, by what I have read online, both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex really sound as if they need some space.

OK there are those out there who will say as part of the Royal family they should expect ‘exposure’.
Another comment I’ve heard, “She knew what she was getting into” ...really?

I don’t know them, but let’s take a step back here, and forget the family they are part of.

These guys only met in the summer of 2016, so in just over three years they got to know each other, fell in love, ‘she’ gave up her career, moved to another country, married, joining one of the most scrutinised families in the world, and then the biggest change ever, had a baby.

In all, that’s a massive life change for them both... the biggest, in my mind, is the birth of the baby.

Expecting your first child is so exciting, but in reality it can be a nightmare, no one ever says how traumatic a delivery may be, or how the new born baby may cry and cry, despite being fed and made as comfortable as you think possible.

Yes, this couple do have a Nanny, but that nanny has no control over the mother’s hormones, which can be in absolute meltdown, post delivery and for months afterwards.

And as for a rift between the brothers, I don’t know, but what I do know, there’s always a disagreement between siblings, I have three children..tell me about it.

BUT, if either one had a problem, they would be there for each other, I just know that, as I’m sure the two brothers in question would be too.
So, ‘taking a step back’, forget their families, forget that they have more money than most of us, ‘they’ are experiencing life changes that many of us have had, BUT, we weren't written about in the tabloids and stalked by photographers when feeling absolute crap.

Whether you like them or not, we should be a little more tolerant.

What do you think?

Autumn at Casa Sant Elia.

These rotting apples must be tasty.

I picked them ten days ago, but then forgot I’d left them on a garden bench!
At least they haven’t gone to waste🐝🐝

This picture has really cheered me up this morning.
It’s very wet and grey here in the UK, my head feels foggy and I’m in desperate need of some motivation.

But when I look at this pic. I can feel the warmth of the sun, and even smell the perfume of the lavender in the garden at Casa Sant Elia...I feel better already.

There’s Always Some Left Over...
to eat!

These are just two bunches of our Verdicchio and Montepulciano grapes that have escaped the press.

They really are delicious, so sweet although a little ‘pippy’....I must stop eating them😋

A Splash Of Winter Colour.

I could have posted so many other shots of Casa Sant Elia today, but I chose this one to start the week.

Over the weekend I’ve been getting rid of all the summer geraniums, which have looked amazing despite the weeks for extreme heat, as well as generally tidying up the garden.

It’s amazing what we find between the lavender and rosemary bushes...socks, flippers, deflated pool floats, tennis balls and goggles to name just a few!

Now it’s time to think about some winter colour, although I must admit the days are never as dull and grey as they are back home in the UK.

These cyclamen will flower here until February and blend so well with the evergreen foliage and tulbaghia, which also also holds a hint of flower throughout the winter. 🌸🌸

After Seven Years We Have Pomegranates!

Only six of them, but it’s a start.
I love pomegranates, they’re sweet, juicy and so full of antioxidants.

All our fruit have done really well this year. The trees have been full of apricots, plums, peaches and not forgetting the cherries and figs...all of which have been enjoyed by our guests at Casa Sant Elia...And, we have enough jam to last until next summer!!

I Love Mirrors!

Especially old ones with the deep bevelled edge. This is a beautiful mirror, and it’s in one of the bedrooms at Casa Sant Elia.
It used to belong to Jerry’s aunty Gladys, and was at the end of her hall. So when you entered through her front door, there it was in all its glory 😍

It’s thought to be ‘a ballroom mirror’ as it glistens with gold as the light reflects on it. ✨
So I imagine all those beautiful women in the 1920’s touching up their makeup, just as our bride is doing here.

Casa Sant Elia Rosé, six hours after de-stalk and pressing.

Although cloudy, it already tastes delicious, can’t wait to taste again after fermentation.

We’ll be bottling early 2020, in plenty of time for our spring and summer weddings and events...

Let The Vendemmia Begin.....but it’s raining ☔️

Even Pixie Dixie doesn’t want to go out, despite seeing a tempting lizard whizz past her.

Hopefully the weather will improve by tomorrow and grape picking can commence 🍇🍇

I love these tendrils, they are unbelievably strong, guess they have to be to hold the weight of a vine full of grapes! 🍇🍇

I can’t believe that within the next week both the Montepulciano and Verdicchio grapes will have been picked, de-stalked, pressed and in their tanks to start their fermentation process...so pleased we have some reinforcements on the way 👏🏻💪🏻💪🏻

What A Summer We’ve Had 🤣☀️

When Chloe and Braz bought the house just four hundred metres down the drive from Casa Sant Elia, they had the option of also buying this amazing tractor with lots of attachments.

The tractor is old, but will I’m sure go on forever, it really is a beautiful beast...goodness knows what half the attachments are for though, apart from the SEEDER !!

Chloe loves the seeder!! and wants to make it into a ‘garden feature’.
There was just one little problem, the seeder was completely overgrown and at the bottom of the field...surely no problem for the chunky tractor and two wannabe farmers.
After an hour or two of pulling and pushing, in blazing 35deg heat🥵 the seeder was free. It hasn’t reached its final resting place as yet,
but I’m sure when it does it will look ‘glorious in all it’s splendour’ thats when Chloe has decided what she’s going to do with it!

Sirolo Le Marche...Again!

We love this place, and as Chloe says, “it always makes me feel I’m on holiday”

The photographs could be a backdrop on a theatre stage, don’t you think?

We couldn’t decide which one to post, so did all three!

We went to enjoy passeggiata, which one dictionary describes as,

“a traditional evening stroll in the central plaza by a town's residents.”

..and of course for us to enjoy an aperitivo.

Sirolo is old, and these houses are on the main piazza.
What a beautiful site as we looked up, the residents looking down on all the young enjoying themselves...as I’m sure they had done themselves in years gone by.

This for us was the real Italy, the Italy that we love, and being ‘outsiders’ the Italy we respect so much.

We Love Mixing Old & New

I started thinking about furnishing Casa Sant Elia even before renovations had started!

It was so important to keep as much as possible of the actual building.
Our visitors can vouch for that, with the original chipped cement staircase leading to the master bedroom!

Many of the family love cooking, therefore the kitchen had to, not only look good, it had to be functional, easy to work in, and easy to clean.
So, we went for a very ‘Italian’ sleek and shiny one, which would hold all our Miele appliances .....well on one side that is!

On the opposite side it’s a totally different look.
The gorgeous dresser and large chest of drawers (which you can’t see) I bought in South Wales, and it came from a house clearance.
It still has the original sales label in the drawer.
Apparently the house was owned by a lovely old lady, and when she died the house was cleared of all its furniture.
I relined the dresser cupboards with a simple striped wallpaper by @littlegreenepaintcompany and now it holds lots of lovely china...another love of mine.

I love the look, and it works so well. I only hope the previous owner knows just how much we love and appreciate her beautiful furniture 😍💕

Looking Forward,

Although it’s still very hot here in Le Marche, there’s a definite change in the air.
The leaves in the garden, although not changing colour, do look as if they need a good layer of moisturiser. As their flower heads start to droop I think they’re just saying “Please, let us go to sleep until next Spring”

But that’s not us! We are so looking forward to the months ahead, and our heads are definitely not drooping.

We’ve been writing our lists, giving each other deadlines..very important. Because sometimes it’s really difficult keeping on track when you’re self employed, especially when there are children around!

Obviously we’re excited about all our events that are happening at Casa Sant Elia in ‘20, but we’re equally excited about our IGTV channel where we’ll be sharing ‘Sant Elia Lifestyle’.
It’s going to be fun, and really hope you’ll join us on our journey.
💍👠👗🍇🍰

Tomatoes, tomatoes everywhere.
🍅🍅🍅

We bake them, grill them, have them sliced as part of a side salad at lunch and dinner, and made the most delicious sauces for the freezer. BUT, our greatest success has been making Tomato Ketchup...a gamble, as like so many children, ours would be addicted to the shop bought stuff if we let them.
To our surprise they loved it, and guess what? it’s another afternoon of ketchup making! 🍅🥵

We love that we are only 10 minutes away from #acquaparcoverdeazzurro
The perfect water park for adults and children alike! Enough slides to keep everyone happy, lots of pools and sunloungers in the shade of the beautiful gardens. The best restaurant that we’ve ever been to at a water park, so it’s always an all day visit! In true Italian style, swim hats are compulsory, which makes us laugh every time and provides great photo opportunities! ☀️💦🍦🏊‍♀️

I love this picture...it just shows that children can have fun at Casa Sant Elia too!
The pool which is 12X6 metres, is perfect for exercise or improving your swimming skills. But, if you don’t want to do either? why not pull up a lounger and just soak up everything which is ‘Casa Sant Elia’

I know I’ve posted about our local fruit & veg shop adding free herbs to everyone’s shopping previously...But this morning not only did we have all the herbs for basic sauces, we also had a huge bunch of basil and the prettiest of sweet peppers.
The peppers will go into a salad and the basil will be a jar or two of pesto, made with Casa Sant Elia Extra Virgin Olive Oil of course!

What’s in the shops this weekend?

What makes a favourite T?

This dusky pink T-shirt from @thisiswhistles is my absolute favourite at the moment, it ticks all of the boxes for me. I love the round neck, it’s not too high or too low. The sleeve length is perfect, feminine and flattering. The overall hip length of the T is great to wear either tucked or untucked, and it’s not too loose or too tight. Lastly, I love the colour 💕
Such a simple garment but so many things to get right - it’s no surprise that finding the perfect T-shirt can be tricky!
What are your favourite basic tees? I would love to hear about them!👚
