Monday 11-18-13 Challenge -- My Grandparents

Monday 11-18-13 Challenge -- My Grandparents

The photo is of my maternal Grandparents, Vincenzo and Virginia (Puccirelli) DiMare. They were both born and raised in Italy and came to the United States in the mid to late 1800's. My Grandfather was naturalized in 1888, but I don't know when my Grandmother was. They were married in the original St. Patrick's Church in Manhattan July 10, 1904. The photo was taken in front of their house in The Bronx, but I don't know what year. They bought the house in 1925, so it had to be sometime around the 1940's to 1950's.

Supplies Used:
CRO Treasured Heirlooms Collection -- Papers, Clock, Telephone, Books, Corner Scroll, Frame, Easel, Word Art
DEB Vintage Grunge Collection -- Butterflies, Flowers
