#HomeTour - To Grandmother's House We Go


My Grandma Fanny is one of the most fabulous women I know. She's a little Sicilian woman, who is as tasteful as Martha Stewart and as sassy as Joan Rivers. (Did I mention she sounds like she's a member of the British Monarchy? Accent and all.) Her home has always been like a museum to me -- I was always being told not to touch or to be careful as a kid and now I understand why. Everything is antique and has value. It's gorgeous and beautiful in every way, just like she is.
Enjoy her
