This week at City Crafter's we are visiting Rome !
I have always thought this would be a magnificent city to visit.
Being as I am married to a man whose grandparents came from Rome, I feel pretty connected. I try to fulfill a couple old Italian traditions still, mostly at the holidays.
My father-in-law always made his own wine. That was some potent stuff - and he would fill up old apple cider bottles we had saved. That is why I chose to do a purple card - a toast to that old wine... and I guess a toast too, to him. He was a wonderfully fun man, who cared about us all very much, and I will miss him for the rest of my life.
