A Palette of Purple

Hello Everyone! I'm sorry for my sparse posting lately. The past two weeks have been busy and a bit rough, especially last weekend. We hosted two (very welcome) house guests, I worked Saturday and Sunday, and my father had surgery on Friday. I've just been exhausted, but fully intend to get back into the swing of posting more than once a week from now on.

Over the next week, I'll also be putting up more pictures from our Italian vacation. I've decided to do a post for each city that we visited. Thanks for all of your wonderful comments about the Rome post. I really appreciate everyone who took the time not only to check them out, but also to leave such thoughtful notes.

With everything that's been going on lately and the weather (which has taken a decided turn towards cold and rainy) I've been craving warm and cozy sweaters, paired with tights, boots and my favorite closet staple...vintage dresses and skirts:) I found this over-sized, angora and lambswool grandfather cardigan at my favorite thrift store the other day and have a feeling that its going to be a winter wardrobe constant. I'll be back soon with more vacation pics!
