Travel - Italy

Hi everybody. The ABC tags are now past history, and we are off on our travels to Italy. My fave place is Rome, a town where I lived for a few months and enjoyed very much.
My tag made me problems, I couldn't fit everything on it that I wanted, so just made a small collage. Mr Umbrella Man also seems to be visiting. Instead of ribbon I added a compass spinner.



And here a picture from 1966 - almost as ancient as the ancient Romans! - showing me standing on one of the terraces of the Colosseum, with Constantine's Arch in the background. Miriam was 3 months old and not really interested in sightseeing! Sorry about the poor quality of the photo, it's just rather old and decrepit like me!

Have a good week you all, take care, and thanks for coming by!

  4. Your collage is fantastic - always in awe of collages ( mine always look as though I threw everything downwithout any relationship!). What a lovely memory too.

  5. The collage is fantastic and the spinner a genius of an idea. You look very at home there.
    (Collage is my favourite art form, so this is a hit with me.)
