Maddy: Sometimes I want to reach out and hug you for all the things you handle with such aplomb, and sometimes I can't you have that much wit and humor in your little family. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

Happy Christmas.

Hilarious! I love Nonna! And you!

Our children LOVE the bowls I bought from your Etsy for them!

Even as teens they recognize real art and real quality.

Hah! Stick to cake making methinks. And, why couldn't you make a living baking cakes?

Okay, Maddy. I'm lost. I get Nonna's joke and I would have laughed, but I was busy wondering what those are and how you make cake in them?

(I did read all the other comments in hopes something they said would enlighten me, but apparently they all already know, because they were able to focus on Nonna's wit!) :)
