A Glass of Wine & A Walk Down Memory Lane

Like what seems to be everyone else in the world, I am taking some time to de-clutter the home now that all of the Christmas decorations are down.  I came across this wine box that my aunt and uncle gave to us a couple of years ago and it sent me back down memory lane.  I still am wracking my brain thinking of practical ways that I can use this gorgeous box.  Aren't those etched glasses just beautiful, not to mention that cobalt blue bottle? 

 This is the first Christmas that we didn't go "home" for Christmas, and while we had a blast staying here I am now feeling a little home sick {on a side note, when do you stop calling your childhood home "home"?}.  The wine is from The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey which is a winery at an old nunnery in the hometown of my aunt and uncle.  There is a small vineyard on the property as well as a winery.  Every year after Christmas the hubby and I would go visit them, pick up a bottle of wine and a couple more wine glasses, and drink the wine a few days later on our anniversary. 

Since I am going down memory lane, I thought you might like a break as well and look at some beautiful photographs taken there a couple of years back during a snow storm. 

Back to the de-cluttering and a little craft project I have going.  I hope your Monday is off to a great start!
