I'm a Blog Virgin!


YES! I am new to blogging and experimenting with my first post. I love reading other peoples thoughts. It's like snooping in someone's windows, which is why I have decided to give blogging a try. Not because I have anything interesting to say! I do, however, have a passion for design, antiques, homes (I'm a sucker for a fixer upper) textiles, gardening, amazing food and wine! I look forward to sharing things I am passionate about.

Please note I have terrible grammar so do not judge me. I went back and forth on a cool design name for this blog and just couldn't come up with one. Instead I named it after my grandparents - two Italian immigrants from Northern Italy, Margaret Carpi and Peter Lavezzoli. Their nicknames were Peggy and Fritz. My grandfather was an incrediable mason and my grandmother was a stay at home mom with an amazing green thumb. They had the largest garden in Chester, CT. They grew everything from peach trees, strawberries, grapes, corn, zucchini, squash, peas (boy did I shuck a lot of peas growing up), melons, potatoes, you name it they grew it! I miss them dearly and couldn't think of a more fitting name for my blog.

It will likely take me a while to get the hang of it but hopefully with a little help - I will figure it out. I look forward to meeting new blog friends and learning about new design, gardening, food and wine, from all of you as well.

Just found you via a comment on BB8. I think that is the way to get readers. The name or the comment has to make people want to click over. Like I know, I do not blog because I have absolutely nothing to say but read hundreds of posts and comments every day. Listen to The Skirted Roundtable to get tons of blogging info.
Best of luck with the blog I will be adding you to my goggle reader. MB

Oh Thank You Mary Beth. Aunt Cyndi too! Like I have a clue how to respond to comments. Hopefully, I will get the hang of it - thanks for visiting. Megan is fabulous and lives up the street from me and has been a great help!
