Cheers!

Had a very small get together this weekend to celebrate my brother's birthday. Not the first time we've had people over but this was the first time we've offically invited people over to celebrate an occassion and eat.

Happy Birthday

It was very informal so I threw together some small platters of sandwiches, fruit, cheese and hummus. A good time was had by all but it reminded me that I'm not quite ready for a proper party. For one thing, I don't own a salt shaker. Im sure I had more than one before I moved here but they have all packed up and moved away. I also don't seem to have any cloth napkins. We did just fine with paper but if we're having a seated meal, cloth would be nicer. Wish I had picked up those blue dwellstudio napkins at Target when I had the chance. Oh well.

But with the inevitable in mind, I've finally placed the wine rack Mr. Limestone bought while outlet shopping so many months ago. Its been living elsewhere for so long that I nearly forget we bought it for this house!
Brass Wine Rack
It looks a little sad with just that duo of wine bottles there, doesn't it? I think I should bring it some company :)

  2. I love the wine rack, too, and think you host a BYOB party for it. :-) Lame question, but what did you use to write on your mirror?

  3. Nice rack! Bwahaha

    Isn't it funny how things just disappear when you move?

  4. Laura - I used Crayola washable window markers (http://www.misterart.com/grouppix/280x210/5000/g5006.jpg) but they don't do a great job. They are too transparent. I have some chalk ink markers on the way for my chalkboard so I will try those on the mirror next time.

  6. I loooove that wine rack! I want it!!! Lucky you. Yeah, the bottles look a little lonely though - it's a good excuse for you to stock up on some more wine.

  10. Your table looks beautiful, as does the wine rack. I'm sure your party was a big success and that your guests loved being in your lovely home.

    Williams-Sonoma has some great basic cloth napkins in their hotel linens collection. They are reasonably priced, and mine have held up well after some 15 years of use. They're available in both dinner and cocktail size.

  11. I agree with the others, the wine rack fits beautifully into your decor. Are you planning to put anything on top of the shelf?
    Totally love those columns!

  12. Naz - what columns?

    I haven't really thought about putting something on the top shelf. I don't drink brandy so we don't have any decanters. I think I'll put some bottles up there when we entertain but thats about it.

  14. The columns flanking the large mirror. Your home has all those special accents that make a house beautiful.

  17. It's the thought that counts and that you had time together. Stock up on napkins on sale/ Just bought some over at Anthropologie and love them!
    I do prefer cloth over paper, however my teenage son told me he and his friend had "burgers" at a spot, where not a knife, fork or napkin was given.
    Guess "home" looks really good now!
