Marzipan in Milano
We were walking down Corso Venezia when I happened to look into a pasticceria and I saw the most incredible display of marzipan! I continued walking but after a few moments I said to Chris, “We have to go back!” And oh my goodness was that the right decision!
Pasticceria Fratelli Freni had so many sweets but the marzipan is what definitely stood out to me. Even James was checking out the display:
Look at these! Pears, mushrooms, figs and watermelon slices - all marzipan:

Window Shopping in Milan, Italy
I love window shopping! There are so many stores here in Milan that I enjoy walking past to see their window displays. They usually change them every day or so, too! They also put little signs next to each mannequin telling you the price of each item displayed.
Look at this red gown in a sea of white wedding dresses at Atelier Emé:

I love this one shoulder dress at Kocca:

We are really enjoying Milan, Italy! Here are some highlights of our visit so far!

On the way to the groomer we met another Poodle owner and she gets her white Standard Poodle groomed at Dog Model, too. The grooming shop isn't far from the Brera district so we were able to walk around and shop while James was groomed. ...

Target - Valentine Napkins
One US store I really miss is Target and their holiday items! They always have cute holiday clothing, kitchen items, party supplies, candy and more.
Target has these cute Valentine's Day napkins and they feature a Poodle and a Dalmation!
I used to buy fun paper plates and napkins for different holidays at Target. It was a fun and easy way to celebrate!
Happy Valentine's Day from Italy! ...

Poodle Bed Pants
I am always finding stuff with Poodles on it. While we were in Italy, I found a fun store called Yamamay. They have a lot of lounge clothing and bed clothes. I happened to notice a soft top and when I looked to see the bed pants that were included I noticed they had dogs on them - including Poodles! So I had to get the set!
James thinks the Poodle bed pants make a nice soft pillow:
Snuggly James (and that is not the matching top that came with the pants - but another bed top I found ...
