Photo a Day Jan. 6, 2009


One of the bottles of an excellent (IMHO)wine my daughter gave me for Christmas. She and her husband had taken us to a wine-tasting on the Outer Banks last summer and this was my favorite wine from that event. I tried ordering some from the vintner, but they couldn't ship to Maryland, so Lisa surprised me with this at Christmastime.

I need to get some snacks before checking other blogs because all of them looks so yummy, wine, grapes, bread, rigatoni, did I miss anything :)
Great photo ! Great for still life painting also!

THAT is that gorgeous red/orange/gold background Mary? I'm sure the wine is very nice, but that fabric looks absolutely delicious.

Perfect....."still life with wine"...

Lovely still life photo, Mary. While I do drink the occasional wine, I really shouldn't as I sometimes have an allergic reaction, particularly to white wine. It causes my sinuses to feel all blocked up.

U know we have got to get you downunder to my little state- we are THE State in Australia for the best wines out! and I live 20 mins from the Barossa Valley and they have gorjas places to go and tour and of course try the local drops and then I am about an hour and a half from the Southern Vineyards and they to do a beautiful drop but totally different character to their wine I am told

Is this from a magazine? Great still life photo, sure looks like it belongs in one of those lavish magazines.

Lucky you! I hope you enjoy the wine when you open it. Blessings, Nicole

Surprises are always the nicest and that she remembered that you liked it was even better.

Actually the idea for this came from a catalog I got in the mail, Kerry. And Judi, the fabric that forms the background is a piece of silk velvet which I bought in several colors when I was (extravagantly) adding to my fabric stash!
