As if I dug into the earth myself to retrieve the pregnant fruit of the vine. The smell of rich cherry permanents my sense. The playful aroma of the lush fermenting liquid and the time it spent dancing the curves of the oak barrel, this is the image that sprang to mind as I closed my eyes to take a sniff.
As I sip the young fruit pops in my mouth and lingers on the sensitive buds. The saliva begins to flow... The thought appears, if only I had the rich makings of a pepper steak to accompany this spirited glass of wine.

For the price I say this is certainly a good find, though I am not familiar with Bordeaux wines. Bordeaux is a compilation of grapes bring forth complexity in flavors and a pleasant surprise to the palate. So with the cold nights rapidly approaching this is the perfect time to explore what Bordeaux has to offer and suggestions are always welcome.

Anyone who is sensitive to my design style knows that I LOVE the Art Deco period of design. So when I stumbled upon Filament Vintage Lighting in the Pasadena Antique Mall I bubbled over with joy. Filament Vintage Lighting is a collection of rewired antique lighting, fixtures, and unique industrial lighting piece. These fixtures are elegant works of art dating back to the early 1900’s. Cast Iron, Copper, Aluminum, Gold finishing… old world materials that make my design taste buds water.
