"My mother was thrilled w/the little salt & pepper set......Thank you for the extra effort to help me w/the purchase. BTW......My daughter soooo enjoyed meeting you......Such a delightful visit!!!" Karen, Walnut Creek, CA

"I know I keep singing your praises re. Gioia and your (and Lee's) success.  I enjoyed your story of how you started with Lee.  You are a natural at this with your interest in all things Italian, your enthusiasm and your outgoing personality.  Your newsletter gets better every issue.  Your outreach and projects grow every day.  You remind me of Anne Robichaud (http://www.annesitaly.com/about-me/) who also graduated (Masters 1970) from Santa Clara University.  She lives in Italy (Asissi with husband, Pino), gives tours (we took one of her Asissi tours many years ago) and also comes to the US once a year for a couple of months and gives cooking classes in various states.  What reminded me of the two of you is the newsletters.  Annie writes a blog.  Very entertaining.  Usually all about her adventures and misadventures living in Italy.  You are both very interesting and accomplished women. so keep up the good work" Carol Ann, Los Gatos, CA

"Thank you for the beautiful newsletter...You probably don't remember me, but I always enjoy the visual reminder of Italy...My husband and I are thinking of going to Italy next year, and I will keep the info here for reference. Baci e Abbraci, "Jo, Fremont, California

"So very pleased with the boxes (inlaid wood). I will likely order another in the new year." Mary Louise, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada

"Thank you so much for the coasters.  That was so thoughtful of you and they match the box!  Everything on my coffee table looks nice and new now and I'm very pleased.  Did you sell all of the boxes already?  If not, and you have any other colors to choose from please send me pictures because I've had a couple of inquiries from friends.  The box is a big hit and perhaps I can get another one sold for you. " Louise,  Atlanta, Georgia

Thanks To All of You!!
