A Jolly Good Weekend in the Vineyards

The back roads of Livermore, California were alive with wine tasters and shoppers this past weekend for Holidays in the Vineyards, their annual wine country tradition. This was the fourth year I participated as a vendor at Big White House Winery, John Evan Cellars.

A family owned winery located located at the end of a small two lane road in Livermore's wine country.

Gorgeous views of the vineyards...

Just as the road comes to an end.....

....the party begins.  Each of the six vendors had a table set up in the tasting room.  Once again, my table was located just under the hanging Christmas Tree; I was sure tempted to hang necklaces all over it.

The walls of the tasting room are lined with paintings created by Laura Marion, sister of co-owner, John Evan Marion.

Standing room only.

It was hard to get a good shot of my display because of the large window directly behind the table.  I actually needed sunglasses inside!

Even these sweeties were enjoying their day in the sun.
"Yes Ma'am, I'll smile and pose for a treat."
Malibu, Angie, Gizmo, and Gene Autry were visiting from 1luckydogrescue
in Pleasanton.

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  Now that my show schedule has come to an end for the year, I really need to get busy with a little holiday decorating and shopping.  It seems like I get started later and later every year.  Oh well, it all gets done eventually.
