Wicked Brew


Just had to share the latest piece (listing tonight) - a whimsical wine set perfect for displaying your favorite bottle of Halloweeny goodness this season (shown here with a favorite of my own, hehe!)

The set includes a large wine coaster, the wooden glass holder and two hand painted glasses, which I will personalize at the request of the winning bidder (great gift for an October wedding, anniversary or handfasting, yes?) LOTS of fun to paint, this one, and after all the dentist and doctor visits this week, I seriously needed some fun!

Still no idea what's plaguing me, other than some rather intense nerve pain whenever I eat or drink anything. I'm hanging in there, but having to work in between episodes, so commissions have fallen about a week behind. I'm also trying to get a few items listed over on ETSY, so stay tuned....

Not much else new around here, except that we finally finished planting the herbs and veggies; not too many this year, and I'm still in search of more sweet basil (need enough to make and freeze pesto for the winter) but it will do. We also picked up a few plants for the pond, and a beautiful new yellow koi. Next on the list will be hanging baskets for the front porch, and strawberries for the back....I'm sooooooooo late this year!

I added a few new tunes to the playlist, so if you're so inclined, check them out. I'm afraid my age is showing with some of them, but oh well....

Right now I'm off to forage through the fridge for our very late dinner, and pour myself a little glass of boxed sangria (I know, I know - boxed (shudder) - but with gas at $4 a gallon, what's a girl to do? Actually, with a strawberry and some orange slices thrown in, its not half bad. ;)

Until next time........

Lovely set, and boxed wine can be tolerable. Hope to see more of your work on Etsy.
