This coming weekend will be a winey one for me, that's for sure. Not whiney. We don't like whiners. There's enough of that throughout the week. Wining. You know, like "wining and dining," except without the dining. You can throw in the dining if you want, but the emphasis will be on the wine.
Friday evening there is a big Wine Showcase to be held at The Farmer's Daughter in White Bear Lake. This event runs from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. There will tastings of wine, wine jellies, and cheese balls. Along with all the fun gift items to be found in the store, there will certainly be lots of wine-related merchandise for your enjoyment. Get some Christmas shopping done for the winer in your life. Of course there will be a great selection of these really fun drink charms made by the most talented Auntie B.
I hope to make an appearance at The Farmer's Daughter Wine Showcase ~ perhaps I can autograph that box of charms you buy for your very best friend!
Saturday and Sunday I'm off to St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin for the ever-wonderful Chateau St. Croix Fall Festival. If you've never been to the Chateau St. Croix Winery, this is your chance. The Fall Festival is one of their biggest events with live music, tons of artisans showing their work, a great variety of food vendors, seed spitting, barrel rolling, grape stomping, and of course wine. The winery offers tours and tastings ~ I find the best way to buy their wine is by the case. It's delish!
My drink charms will be available at the Fall Festival too; also I'll be unveiling some new magnets. Here's a peek...
I'll have an abundance of candles for sale too. All natural palm wax, creamy beeswax, and traditional paraffin will cover the tables inside my booth.
Join the rest of us winers this weekend at one or both of these events. If you don't like wine you probably like shopping, so we've got you covered. I can hardly wait!
