The Grape Escape

My BFF came up yesterday to deliver some junque and to have a girls day.
I decided to give her a little Wine Country escape.

My most favorite Winery here in Temecula is Ponte.


Maybe because I'm a little partial to barns...
and because they are so darn nice here...
and they have the yummiest wine...
and they have the yummiest food in the most gorgeous
garden setting.


This is Sharon Hughes, the Pansy Girl behind Pansy Cottage Garden.

Get to know her here:

{Sharon was in awe}











We did a little shopping...
{that's dipping sauce-Scallion Oil}



THEN I spied this!



And studied it...




And got some close-ups for Mr. BRC
because unfortunately, I did not have
$1100.00 in change in my ashtray in the truck!



Here's a peek inside my brain...

An old dresser with the bottom drawers removed.
Cut plywood and a little trim.
A fabulous paint job.
Voila!
A one of a kind, over the top, wine storage cabinet.

Stay tuned for that one because I just added it to the list!

After our fabulous lunch, we headed
to Old Town to visit a couple of
Antique Shops and see some friends.

It was a good Sunday.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

xo, Amber

Amber, Such a cute photo of your friend. It looked like a nice place to eat out. I love the wine rack idea...even a little night stand would work. Smiles to you, Susie

Amber I LOVE that wine storage cabinet. Oh so glad you gave a peep into your brain, lol, because I would have never thought of the old dresser idea! I wanna come shop with you, and visit the vineyards, too. We could have a blast! I'm going to look for an old dresser tomorrow, and put this post into my fav's to show hubby :)
