My eldest and I were on a reconnaissance mission yesterday, spying on our neighbors' sizable "trash". This is what we loaded into our car:



I'm awaiting the day I have a vineyard of my own and can celebrate the Vendanges with baguette and aged cheese.



What does hubby think of that? He's already planted our first vine...

Absolutely love it! The idea of your own vineyard too! I have been on the lookout for one of those folding tables too,how lucky you were to find one right next door!

Trash to one, trasure to another. I have found some unique items. Vinyards are spreading all around my area.i like the juice slightly frozen(sorbet) better than the wine.My parents had a wine making club, so I have made quite a bit myself.

Ah, beautiful! I wish I had the courage to pick up people's trash - I see some really good stuff!

Lovely find! I was checking thrift stores for a drop leaf table just like that, but the prices were too high. You are lucky!

Daydreamers wishes can come true.. when you are a believer. And I believe your sweet wine will come with a little time and care, Alli.

I love the table. My neighbors never throw away anything good! Lucky you. A vineyard would be nice. I wonder what kind of grapes would grow well here? Carla

When we went on our honeymoon we decided to go to Sonoma and Napa Valley in CA. to the vineyards. There is nothing like looking at row after row of gorgeous grape vines. Dreams do come true!! Great finds. I love the table.
