Ah so ...... ah shucks!

Friday night .... after a long week at work, I was looking forward to a relaxing evening at home with a great glass of wine. I ventured into my stash for a bottle to open, and picked out a bottle of Petite Sirah. Just as I started to open it with my trusty "Ah so" wine opener there was a surprise snap!  One of the prongs of the cork puller snapped off, leaving both the cork and cork puller still in the bottle. Dang! Frustrated and disappointed, I handed the bottle to my son and he calmly got out the old-fashioned screw-cork-puller. It did the job, but I prefer my "Ah so" and I'll miss it! I guess nothing lasts forever!!

What is your favorite type of wine opener? and have any of your favorite tools bit the dust lately?

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!

I wish you all a day filled with sweetness. 

I've been away from my blog and my artwork for awhile, and I'm really missing this creative corner of my life. I'm pushing my internal 'restart button' and looking forward making time for some art in my days again.  I've missed you all......!
