Recognize this photo?
I'm sure many of you do. If not, maybe you recognize the back of the woman...then again maybe not. It is Frances Mayes better known as Diane Lane and the beautiful home as you may have now guessed is Bramasole, the Tuscan Villa that she so unexpectedly purchased on a whim in the movie Under The Tuscan Sun.
I fell in love with this movie the moment that I saw it, which was about 6 years ago. There was just something so freeing about it and the idea of starting over in such a place was definitely a thought to get lost in. I would love to be able to just whisk away to the countrysides of Tuscany and just marvel.
Here are a couple of adorable little cottages that would make me just as happy!
I could totally cuddle up to these places in a perfect little window seat with a good book and a cup of coffee. The thought alone just makes me smile.
