Valentines Gift for the coffee lover


Forget chocolate and flowers, how about a coffee lovers gift basket.

We have become big fans of the morning latte. We spend some loot on our beans

but we rarely get lattes out and we figure “think how much money we are saving”

Plus everything we put in our lattes is organic and free trade. Guilt free – right?!

These cups above were handmade in Sweden by artisans for a favorite coffee house of ours.

Artisan wine

I’m very excited to announce that soon -October 15th- Artwork created by my husband and I will appear on a wine label. The wine is found here. Our little bio is found here.

The art is entitled “The Wedding” and it is a photograph created by my husband that I then painted and applied silverleaf onto, it was a part of a group show in Mendocino entitled ” Honoring the Feminine”

The tasting notes on the wine are as follows: “Inky dark red in color, aromas of black cherry, graphite, licorice and tea leaves draw you into the glass. Black cherry carries through to the palate, joined by boysenberry, dark plum, a touch of chocolate and a hint of blueberry, gently embraced by fine tannins through a velvet finish that begs for another sip.”

YUM! Hope you get a chance to try it, I can just taste it now….
