to market... d bottles his wine...

about six weeks ago we went to

Classic Winemakers to make wine.

the wine experience was a birthday and father's day

gift to mr d from the kids. on Saturday we drove to

Olympia to visit the farmer's market, then on

to Lacey to bottle mr d's wine.

~ FRESH from Sullivan's Homestead!~

just a few market pics...

i had to grab a shot of the apples...after all,

we are the apple state...and...(my maiden name

was Sullivan)

i could not resist capturing this little garnish at the

produce stand. i love the chippy background!

an inspiration for a DYI project ?

Seattle, the birthplace of Starbucks...

 has inspired hundreds of boutique coffee

roasters in our state over the years...



wine bottling

we invited another couple to join us...two of our

dearest friends, Alice and Steve. we all took turns

with the steps of the bottling project. Alice is filling

the bottles and mr d is corking!

Steve jumped in to help with the labeling process!

here's the label! mr d designed it on

picnik...that's our Chocolat Gousse when

she was a pup! the LAB CAB will be shelved

here on 34th street to age for one year!


have a wonderful week, my friends!

{with love}


  1. This looks like SO much fun...much better than just touring a winery! Are you going to be able to wait a year to open it?! ;-D


  2. Cool label!!

    Can you wait a year to open them? I don't know if i could lol !

    Looks like you live in a great place Lynne!!
    I love apples...a real apple girl and i have one every single day!!! I'm crazy for them.

  3. I love your wine label! How fun as well to make your own wine. My husband has been home brewing beer (it smells awful), but the beer turns out pretty good! I want to try making wine sometime!
