Milk bottle and father's day

I like milk...my childish side finds milk something reassuring...it heats when it's cold and restore when it's hot...

















...I wanted a special bottle for it...I printed the label...and now my milk has a pretty bottle!
The letter biscuits are called quaresimali...they're a simple and traditional recipe in Tuscany for the time before Easter...made of sugar, cocoa and albumen...simple but delicious!


Today is father' day...

















...in this photos I was with my dad when I was 2 years old...

















...now he is not with us anymore...thank you papà...you've been the only man of my life who made me fly!
Have a nice and sunny week end!

Hi Vale,
This post is touching...you were adorable as a little girl and still are! I remember the kind words you had for your Papa when we visited and how you reassured Rob that a father is always so special to a girl...Your love for him was apparent then as now!
...and I love your milk bottle!
Take care,
Laura

Rostrose ha detto...

Dearest Vale, I LOVE the photos and your words to fathers-day, they really touch me! The only man who made you fly, that's wonderful! And you was so sweet! I think you liked milk as child, too - so it is perfect to drink milk on fathers day out of this pretty bottle!!! I really would like to drink a glass of milk with you (and to eat one or two of the letters ;o))
Lots of spring-hugs, Traude

Min Verden ha detto...

Hey Vale - I'm fine :) I wish you could send some of that Helleborus for me. :) One tips with sweet peas is to put them in some wather during night before you put them into the soil. Wish you luck. Hope you are well - aswell :) Have a great weekend!

Anne in Oxfordshire ha detto...

A beautiful post Vale, I love your printed label for the milk bottle.

A lovely tribute to your dad. I miss my dad all the time, but especially when we have Fathers day, I lost my dad when I was 10, a long long time ago !
