our holiday wines are here! laissez la saison commence!

eleven :: twelve :: thirteen 

hello blog friends, old and new!

i must say that everyone is showing their holiday spirit! 

...lot's of giving, planning, crafting, cooking and

 decorating inspiration happening out there!

you motivate me every day! 

thank you.

thank you!


when our nest emptied, we were sad.

i started a blog and Mr D acquired an interest 

in good wine. i love watching my Carhartt wearing

guy taste wine. our routine... he sips first, then

hands the glass to me, saying, 

"Lynne, you can taste the oak, and the cherry in this one."

"this is very fruity. taste the grapefruit...the peach!"

his favorite is usually "the Cab"!

it just melts my heart and makes me smile.

 on a visit to Walla Walla,(Washington's

wine country), about three years ago, we joined a wine club.

we receive two shipments a year. the first arrives in the 

Springtime, the second, in the Fall.

...just in time for the holidays!

last Thursday, we received our beautiful wines.

the Fall wine shipment inspires the first dreams

and plans for our holiday table.

last Friday night, Revelry held their

inaugural Harvest Dinner. 

we could not attend.

when the images of the event popped up on

facebook, i liked...and posted a little comment!

(so beautifully photographed, a feast for the eyes!)

yesterday, i received a document envelope

via UPS. inside, was a menu from the event with 

a hand written note. 

talk about delight!!!

you all know how...

 ...i have a passion for menus.

this one is no exception!

it will be framed for my kitchen by the weekend!

...and those of you that know me will be assured that it

with be photocopied on white linen paper and card stock

for gift wrapping!

thank you for your thought filled
gesture, Lindsey!

 laissez la saison commence!

(we hope to be there next year!)


:: all images,(except the last one on the farm table) are from
Revelry's blog here ::

(i am not being compensated for talking about Revelry's
wine. i just love to blog about the little pleasures
that make life sweet here on 34th street!)

  3. What a wonderful gesture for Revelry to send you their menu. That was cute what you said about your carhardt guy wine tasting. Sweet. xoxo,Susie

  4. Though you didn't attend the event I enjoy the private tasting between you and your husband. Lovely and evocative post....or maybe I just adore wine....either way.... gorgeous!
