Kerri  Norrod.

It looks like you had fun picking grapes. What a fun time with your family! I am going to go to Borders and pick up that magazine. Can't wait to see your stuff!


yes, must get the magazine.
Grape picking can be fun...for a while. growing up we always had grapes to pick either at home or a family members. When I moved in with my husband, his home was quite near Delicato Wineries in California. We could smell all the grape smells, good and bad.


It's fun to recognize the names in magazines. What a fun day you had, in spite of all the hard work.



Oh, I must hobble to the store for a copy of the mag now. Those photos of yours are wonderful, the foggy background makes it look quite mysterious.

Let's see if I can get Romantic Country over here. I just rediscovered the American Bookstore and they sell some of your great magazines, so perhaps....Those pictures of you and your sisters are so much fun, as you said a true momento of a very nice time together. And what do I hear about an all you can eat chocolate buffet. I think I have to introduce that one over here!

Karla, Great post full of wonderful eye candy. Looks like you had a great time picking grapes



I just picked up the new issue today and I can't wait to linger over it.

Hi Karla! It looks like a fabulous time and the dessert/candy looks fabulous!!! WOW, wine infused chocolate, that is what I need at night, lol!

Love the hat too! Those colors are beautiful. I cant wait to get my copy of Romantic Country in the mail!



Ok, Am I just getting that you only use the hats for the flowers? Or do you use them for other things? How can you tell a vintage flower from a new one? LOL Obviously I don't use flowers on my crafts. Take care


What a neat experience. I've picked Wild Mustang Grapes for homemade wine. You have to watch out for poison ivy since they are growing in the wild! The food looks wonderful!


You all look so pretty for your grape-picking adventures! Hubby says so too!

Susan M Hickam

Sounds like you all had a fabulous time! You do have hat radar don't you? I can't wait to find the Romantic Country issue you mentioned. Have a nice relaxing evening.


I can't wait to get my Romantic Country! You'd think subscribers would get them before the newsstands, but most magazines are like that. Despite all the hard work, it looks like you all had a great time!

Great pics - looks like a "grape" time was had by all. I really love the misty picture of the vineyard.

You know how to have fun! I love the pics of you and your sissies. My dad picked grapes, for pay, when he was 12. It was VERY hard work and it was in central CA where it is hot and humid during grape picking season.

The WORKING dog is amazing!

I love your nest of fairies. They are so cute!



Looks like you girls had loads of fun! Sisters are great!

I'll be heading into town tomorrow to pick up a copy of this issue for sure! I really need to subscribe.

Your grape adventure looks like fun but not as fun as riding on a carousel horse in front of the antique mall!

Have a sweet remainder of the week!


grape picking reminds me of the grape root brought over from Italy by my great grandparents that still produces fruit in my Grandma's backyard! love your pics,


It looks like fun work. You and your sisters are such pretty gals. Always a smile. I love it.


In spite of the "Work" at the winery, it looks like it was a great day for you and your family! Needless to say, the food looked wonderful! Hm-m-m-m, wine infused chocolate! Now that's something new to try! LOL!
