Happy Friday! It is good to be home after 2 days of driving.
Later today we will celebrated the end of Hanna's first year by opening a bottle of bubbly!
Today I thought I'd share this fun little collection/journal that I started in 2008. That is when I started marking champagne corks with the date and reason for the celebration.
I have 58 so far. At first I only marked the special ones like Christmas, Birthdays, Oscar night. But now I mark all of them.
I think this was the first one that I signed.
Here is one when Andrew was accepted into Ramapo College.
I treated myself when I finished my Mother's Garden Quilt.
A girls weekend in Chicago. I bring them home from cruises, restaurants, where ever I was lucky enough to enjoy some bubbles.
Here is one of my personal favorites: Just Sunday. I've made no secret that I love champagne, I guess that Sunday it just seemed right :)
I keep them in this over sized brandy snifter.
And speaking of oversized; check out this bottle. I bought it at an estate sale several years ago. I think the owner was a liquor distributer or something.
And finally I leave you with todays fresh pick from the yard.
Lily of the Valley in a pretty champagne flute.
Fun things this weekend:
Saturday: Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby
Sunday: Quilt show with friends.
I hope you have fun things planned to!
