...spent a crisp autumn day with the wire cutters and made sets of BeachStone Stemware Charms. This is always fun but terribly hard on the hands- by the end of the session my thumb was deeply bruised. The only recourse was to open a bottle of "Cycles Gladiator 2005" a Syrah from California. My husband chose the vintage- I wonder if it was because of the label? The wine was delicious... a bouquet that reminded me of arugula which sounds weird but was lovely.
