A Gift from Italy


My parents returned from Italy with many beautiful gifts—mine included a gorgeous scarf and Murano glass earrings. But the above handmade, one-of-kind hat, which my parents found at a store called Quisquilia & Pinzillacchera in Florence, is one of my favorites. Who wouldn’t want a cute little bird atop their head at the age of 2?
