Highs and lows

Today was the Narberth Music & Arts Summer Festival.  I did this one last year, and it was a pretty good day.

Today, not so much.

Today, in a word, sucked.  On ice.

There are days like that, and thankfully they don't happen very often.  Today, at least, the weather was fabulous (after drenching rain all day yesterday), the other vendors were great, and I came home with an amazing gift from a fellow vendor, blog reader and one half of a multi-talented couple.

One of Damp Cellar Turnings' shaving brush and bowl sets
In addition to being a pretty impressive home winemaker, the shop -- called Damp Cellar Turnings (because their damp cellar is where all the magic happens) -- has a wonderful selection of handmade wooden items (mostly pens and shaving-related goods), all of which are lovely to the touch and reasonably priced.

The wine has moved from the counter to the wine rack, and in some cases the fridge.  There wasn't time to chill it in time to be the glass (or two --  don't judge) that I needed after I unpacked after my day.

Some days, you're the pigeon and other days you're the statute.  

Do statues drink wine?

Sorry to hear about your day.
I'm going to remember that one "some days your the pigeon and other days you're the statue".

This statue drinks wine!

I was just sitting down after work and home and life with a glass of said wine and opened your blog. I am speechless as is Joe. Thank you for the shout out. The crafters we have met since we started going to shows in December have been a welcoming group. I have been a long time lurker of your blog. Your insight, humor and advise have all been heeded. I hope your next event is better than the last and that the wine makes it all a little better. Hope to intersect again soon and thank you! Patti from Damp Cellar Turnings

Where can one get this wine? I saw Damp Cellar Turnings - but maybe you have to purchase at a craft event? Where is a schedule of the events??
