a la vie!



Our sweet younger daughter
 sent us this wonderful bottle of white bubbly
  for our Anniversary last month.
We haven't had a chance to enjoy it as yet,
 so every time I open the fridge,
 there it sets, just looking all pretty in pink and white.







I know right now that I'll save this lovely bottle and label.
I get happy just looking at it!




My Honey found this frenchy wine carrier for me over the Holidays so I thought I'd take a few photos after being inspired by my bud, Anne. She has a wonderful new camera, and is venturing out into some
exciting new opportunities in photography.






A small bouquet from said daughter's wedding,
and some vintage wine glasses complete the setting. 



Thinking of Valentine's Day
I just get a little romantic.



So here's to friends' new adventures,
darling daughters,
sweet husbands,
romance...
and to
 all of you!

"to life!"



I'm linking to Marty





Hope you're having a wonderful week!
love,
Debra

  3. Isn't the label on the bottle beautiful! I have never seen a pink wine label. But Sophia Coppella does things like a lady. Congrats on your anniversary and this lovely post.
    Anne is very talented- love to have her photograph my home.

  5. ...Sofia has the packaging thing down!!
    (I guess I really shouldn't be surprised as she did dress Marie soooo extraordinaire!)

    ~ and for even more fizzy delight, drop a sugar cube into the bottom of your glasses before you pour and giggle with delight!!!
    (Willy Wonka shared that secret with me ~ LOL!!)

  52. Hi Debra,
    Im in love with the beauty in all the trunks, and lugage!! I want the white ones and all the LV's

    The label on the the bottle is so cool You will have to soak that one off or steam it off, its worth creating something from it.

    Have a beautiful moment in time when you share that bottle with your honey :)

    see you soon
