My new DomLovesMary font is days away from being released! Because it’s been created in memory of my in-laws, Dominic and Mary Sementelli, I thought I’d share some things about these two people who were an incredible blessing in my life.
Today, it’s “Something about Mary”.
Mary was, in Texas terms, a “hoot”. She was all of 4’11″ in heels but commanded a room like she was six feet tall
Born in New York, she eventually moved to Erie, Pennsylvania. She had gal pals galore that she stayed friends with all of her life.
In their single years, they loved to to go to night clubs with that cool 40″s vibe like “The Town Casino”, “Lorenzo’s” and “The Chez Ami” in nearby Buffalo, New York. Dressed to the nines , they’d have cocktails and dance to the music of great bands.
On one of those occasions, she was intrigued with a strong, handsome man named Dominic. He was her opposite to be sure. The strong, silent type, he didn’t like the spot light on him. But he loved her spunky personality and was happy to let her shine.
After several years of courting, she was finally ready to settle down. She was 30 years old, unusual for that time. But she had waited for the best:)
Mary always had great taste and was always thinking ahead. She purchased this Heywood Wakefield bedroom suite, that now resides in the guest room of our home, a year before her marriage.
On September 6, 1953, on the arm of her brother, she entered St. Paul’s Catholic Church in the “little Italy” section of the city to marry Dominic Sementelli, the love of her life.
Thirty one years later, Michael and I said our vows there as well.
Tomorrow, “Dom, The Strong Silent Type. “
This is a sample of my soon to be released fon “DomLovesMary” in use with special flourishes and “Add on” word.
The font family features three different versions of the alphabet, a set of “Add Ons” that will include words like “and, to, of, for, at, etc…in addition to 124 flourishes to be added to either the upper or lower case so you can create your own custom look!
It will be released on myfonts.com on my Correspondence Ink foundry page.
I’ll be sponsoring a give away of a wedding item using the DomLovesmary font on Brenda’s blog soon. Subscribe to my blog to get the details.
