Dear MamaB,

In my printed edition of IHT they still say 400 years... but in the additional blogroll they say 1970s... maybe they calculated 2012-1970?, it's over 40 years,... (Our home is over 200 something years. Not really 400 either.)

Anyway, it's really exciting to be in these big newspapers. And nice to discovered some new renovating expats' blogs!

Hi Suzie thanks for stopping by. Our little 'cottage' was built in the 70's! IHT have corrected their mistakes in the article and I think perhaps they were thinking of your gorgeous place when they quoted 400 years. Isn't it wonderful to see this article, I love your blog too and look forward to following your story.


Dear MamaB,

I discovered your blog in NYTimes.com where both our renovation projects are mentioned today.

I wonder how old your stone villa really is?
Editors... ;-)

You live in a fantastic region! The pics at NYT look fantastic, great renovation work!

PS: I hope I got your name right

Greetings from Suzie (Palazzo Pizzo)


Dear Nicole,

I discovered your blog via NYTimes, where both our renovation projects are mentioned today.

So how old is your farmhouse then? Editors....

Great renovation work!

Welcome to my vintage life where I am living my dream renovating an old stone villa in the hills of Grasse, spending my time scouring the local flea-markets finding all things old, vintage and shabby to give this little old house a soul.
