Kranz Scarf Photo TransferAuthor and quit teacher Mary Ellen Kranz is leading Italian Inspirations: Blending Photos with Fabric to Orvieto September 28 – October 4, 2008. Mary Ellen, a master at manipulating digital photos and putting them on fabric, will help participants capture and save memories of this trip with photos on fabric. There will be several projects including a silk scarf purchased in Orvieto on to which will go a photo. Pictured here are examples of these scarves. Each picture is one she took in Italy and put on an Italian scarf. Cool huh?

Well guess what? The same week as this trip Orvieto is holding its annual Orvieto With Taste, a week of great food. It is an absolute shame not to take advantage of the festivities. The highlight of the week is a movable feast: an afternoon visiting 4 historic sites at which are four different food and wine offerings. The first provides appetizers, the second a chickpea and chestnut soup, the third the famous Chianina beef with a polenta spelt, and the last a chocolate tort. All the wine is from the Orvieto region including both white and red.

Only problem is the highlight day is the day the group is scheduled to leave. So we are adding a day and a ticket to the Walk of Taste as it is called all at no cost. Contact us if you would like to go – time is running out! Our e-mail is info@AdventuresInItaly.net and phone is 803.233.3164.

We lead Adventures in Italy trips because they inspire and renew. Italy, it seems, has had this effect for millennia. “Make haste slowly” was Caesar Augusta’s admonition 2000 years ago. It’s apt advice in our hectic world today. How did he know? Inspiration from Italy’s deep past!

Make Haste Slowly, the blog, is inspired by Italy and hopes to inspire a fuller, deeper, richer, slower, quieter, saner life amongst all the din and speed of our modern world. Too, it is a place to  keep up with Adventures in Italy journeys and developments.

I am reading Dawna Markova’s “I Will Not Die an Unlived Life” at the moment. It will provide inspiration and grist for this blog at least for a while. With a name like that it should!
