whites...

i'm addicted to beautiful wine labels...

last weekend we were in of course my favorite store and this bottle stopped me in my tracks on the shelf...


it sure did...

what a beautiful, beautiful label this is

this is how I try new wines...I look at the label or the bottle first...
I love the art that goes into creating the label...or the simplicity of them too

I'm no wine connoisseur by any means
but I'm guilty as charged for purchasing wine for the labels...

I had to explain to guests at Madison's party when my lower cupboard was opened that the empty bottles I plan to save for flowers...were over several months period of time
{seriously}...
all the same bottle...because I loved the word honeymoon on it...

my mother-in-law and mother laughed when I said that...but it's the truth


can you imagine picking flowers in a beautiful dress like that?
maybe I can...maybe I can't at the same time...
but it got me to purchase the wine...
{I got to tell you it's a bit too sweet for me...but lovin' the label}

and it makes me dream of having a

lush

and

flowery back yard

where I can take my basket and load up some flowers to take inside for the table...

I did snag up almost the last of the white hydrangeas at the store...
and that did just the trick to make me smile

oh to dream...
have a great weekend everyone!

Those are beautiful. I have a friend who sells wine - and the labels are able to be personalized. I think you family would be GORGEOUS on a bottle of wine! :)

I love looking at the wine labels too, I am not a big wine drinker but I find them so artistically fascinating! Trader joes, don't know if you have one of those has some really neat ones and some great names too! happy weekend Martha!

I save all my wine bottles as well, especially the pretty ones :) That one is beautiful, I might buy it to display(not into really sweet wines either). Sounds like you are ready for a good weekend....with the hydrangeas and wine!!

It is funny how we can be a sucker for labels with beautiful pictures! I have been guilty of that too! Well, hope the wine was just as good anyway.

I don't drink wine...but I cook with it...and always choose one with the cutest label...that's so girly, huh.

i'm right with ya' girlie!

at my weekend girls trip i gave the hostess a bottle of wine
i am no conisseur either so i had to confess that the purchase was clearly made on the basis of the super cute label (cupcake) & if the wine was terrible i sincerely apologize

i'm certain your home looked lovely with all the white hydrangeas!
