Happy New Year!

Lisa came to visit with her new baby girl Olivia! Olivia is 3 months old and came in from California to visit her grandparents. Lisa  worked at Tutto Bene when she was just 16 years old, and now she is the mother of a beautiful baby girl.  We were all excited to see her even Violet who was not sure what to make of the whole situation! The pictures are of Barbara holding Olivia - Lisa next to her and Violet jumping up to make sure all is well.    Hope everyone has a wonderful New Year!

Our wonderful friend Tish who owns Gardenering has been doing our window box since the day we opened our doors. And has made it the envy of the street.
