I cannot believe it's almost August!! Why is it that January, February, and March just crawl by and then boom.....April hits and time just flies? It's been a busy, busy summer with a family reunion, family visits, beach time, lots of yard work and lots of hunting and gathering for The Vintage Nest on line shop and physical presence. Just recently I returned from a trip to the mountains. A respite from the heat and humidity was so refreshing and invigorating. My sisters and niece and I chatted and chatted and chatted and covered a million subjects and when I got home I still thought of things I wanted to say :) And you know some antiquing and junking was on the menu too, not to mention lots of good food and did I mention chatting? :) We stayed in a log cabin, with all the amenities, the sheep being our closest neighbors and the nearby scenic New River. It was so peaceful and idyliic.
the gentleman beside me was the owner. He was such a character and so much fun. My favorite wine was called Horse Stomp Red. Our hostesshad us taste this wine, nibble a few dark chocolate bits , take another sip and swallow the wine and chocolate at the same time. Oh my! The taste and aroma of raspberries was loud and clear. Another favorite was a mix of bananas, pineapples and Viognier......also known as a "cheap trip to the beach." :)
One of my mountain treasures I found. A very large handmade church bird feeder....all shabby and weatherized for perfect patina
