Euro Summer Whites and Cool Shirts

Country Living Clothesline

Summer Euro Whites and Cool White Shirts

I love white linen because it reminds me of warm days when my mom would hang clean linens on the clothesline to dry.  My sister and I would run through them and feel the cool fabric.  We'd play hide and go seek.  What fun!

Different Look of Fess Parker Winery Los Olivos, California


My husband and I had the delightful opportunity to attend the Release Day wine event at the Fess Parker Winery in the Santa Ynez Valley.  Yes, it's thee Fess Parker from Davy Crockett TV show days.  He opened this winery and has a lovely Inn in Los Olivos.  He actually loved the Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez Valley areas and was at the winery a lot until his passing. What a great day trip to visit and admire the beautiful old towering oak trees and flowers among the rows of wine grapes.  The setting is a stunning example of a natural California landscape.





                             Four wine tasting stations and the scrumptious BBQ lunch was a delight...                                            not to mention the live Blue Grass music, Ventura Strings.







The tasting room is elegant with just a few memories of the legendary star of T.V such as photos and a coonskin cap on the bar.

Such a fun place to be on a cool Saturday in the Santa Ynez Valley!










The Inn at Los Olivos and don't forget the Inn at Santa Barbara.

Lauren Bacall's Pricey Vuitton!


Lauren Bacall was such a lovely and mysterious woman.  She passed away recently and her apartment at the Dakotas in N.Y. went up for sale.  Her antiques and fine art have been auctioned recently.  The Louis Vuitton ensemble luggage with Ms. Bacall's monogrammed initials went for $37,5000.  Wow, that's traveling in style.  Photos on Lonny.






Thanks for viewing...

'Bottle Shock" with '70's Flavour


If you've not seen the movie "Bottle Shock" starring Alan Rickman, Bill Pullman, Chris Pine and Dennis Farina, then check it out on Netflix.  It's all about the emerging Napa Valley Wine industry in the '70's and the impact it had on the skeptic French wine sommeliers. The scene above where the blind tasting event was held, reflected Euro vintage vehicles on a rustic farm as if it were set in France (and convincingly pulled off).  However, scenes were shot n the beautiful California Napa Sonoma Valley.
