Wine Anyone

I have this little wicker table in my kitchen at the end of the counter that I have had a plant on for the last few months.  Well it decided to die so I thought I would do a little vignette.  How about a Valentine Wine theme.

I already had every thing.  So there was no cost.

The Fieldstone Vineyards and the Parley Lake Winery are both in Minnesota and they have excellent wine.

Notice the little lighthouse wine charms on the glasses.  They were a gift from a friend.

I got the pineapple wine cork holder when I visited a couple of wineries in New Hampshire last fall.


Playing around with Picnik since it's going to be gone soon.  I gave the wine holder a Sepia tone.

The picture you see of the wine glasse and peaches is one that I painted in oils years ago.
I don't paint in oils anymore but am trying to learn water color.  It's a lot harder for me.

Playing around in Picnik again and put a frame around it.

  Maybe I'll have to try painting this in water color and see what a mess I can do with it.

I've been kind of sick this past week with a nasty cold. So if I haven't responded to your comments or posted a comment on your blog, you will know why.  I appreciate all your comments and the new followers.  You make my day!

Off I go now to Miss Marty's 100th Table Top Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life
Please join me over there for some very impressive table tops and vignettes.

Until Next Time

I hope you feel better very soon, Barb.
The wine vignette looks like it could be in the lobby of a restaurant; I'm very impressed that you painted the picture. I paint walls in my house!

Hi Barb, Oh I love your vignette and your painting is gorgeous. You sure are a wonderful and talented artist. I also really love the pineapple cork holder. I need to look for one of those. So unique.
Hope you are feeling better. Thank you for inspiring me with your decorative display. Love it.
