Our Corksuckers Christmas Party was FUN! (That's wine-tasters, in case you're not in the know.) We met at the Glen Tavern Inn in Santa Paula, and had a fabulous wine tasting, lots of fun, a gift exchange, and a group photo.
It was an elegant affair with it being semi-formal attire. Scott had to work late on a shoot in L.A. so he came later in his work clothes, but I didn't care. We still posed on the stairs for a little Christmas photo.
I've been saving corks for a LONG time, and hot glued them to a basket after cutting them in half with a bread knife. I also covered a couple of tiles with them for cool coasters. I use this basket all the time! It's great for laying a loaf of warm bread in a towel and placing it inside to stay cozy. I usually serve a brie cheese, a big bowl of olives, and a plate of olive oil and balsamic vinegar along with a nice dark wine, such as my favorite merlot.
Oh, as you can see, everyone was not quite ready for the camera to go off on the timer. Too funny! If you want to see more photos, go to John Nichol's Flicker photo gallery online.
