Texas Wine Country !!

I guess you think of France, Italy, Germany, Argentina, or California as the meccas for good wine. And I do love their wines!!
But, I was surprised to learn that Texas is the 5th largest wine producer in the U.S.A.  The town of Fredericksburg in the Texas Hill Country for years has been know for it's wine festivals and tasting events. Also big is the limousine wine tour for bachelorette parties, girls night out, birthdays, and anniversary parties.  Brenham Texas has an annual wine stomping event. But I didn't realize how many winery there are in Texas or how large the wine
business is in Texas.

I love a glass of wine in the evening and a light sweet wine is my favorite.  My daughter calls it sissy wine- she likes the rich dry wines that cost a weeks wage!

 Six reasons you should drink wine for your health:

1. Wine could help preserve your memory

2. People who drink wine have a lower body mass

3.  Drinking wine boosts your body defenses

4.  Could  guard against ovarian woes

5.  Wine helps build better bones

6.  Helps prevent blood sugar troubles

Ok, I didn't make this up- I read it on a research on wine benefits.

Now some of my Etsy collection on sale:  Mexican pottery and American Indian pottery and jewelry

Being Creative Again!

I must be a real Artist- I have to be inspired to paint, write, create my eclectic jewelry or do anything that's at all creative.
Last week I remodeled the house by moving things from room to room? Looks better and I purged- got rid of "Stuff" - and I do have allot of "Stuff". Some day I'm going to group all my collections and take pictures so I remember what I have collected!

Anyway I was in the mood and did some worked on jewelry last week-

I have also worked on my Facebook page at last!
so now you need to visit -
