Self Portrait Challenge {Food & Me}


This past week I got intimate with grapes. We could smell them as we walked up to the grape vines at out friends’ house. There’s something that makes you want to keep cutting bunches from the vine when you hold that delicate bundle in your hand and place it down carefully into a pile of purple deliciousness.

{Sorry, but I just have to post a lot of grape pictures.}








From the vine to the jar. Grape juice and grape jelly. It’s perfection in a jar.

go here for other's self portraits with food

As I talked to you while you made jelly I could SMELL the grapes. I wish I could have been there to help you. Why don't we live closer?

this is delish! i love the vibrancy of the crates of fresh grapes...all the way to the last drop in the glass. ;-D

Beautiful pictures. My mouth waters at the sight of the crates full of those dark purple grapes. My grandparents had a very small vineyard. The vines twisted and curled around the posts that surrounded their courtyard and they grew across the lattice work creating a kind of ceiling of hanging grapes over the courtyard. I have never tasted store bought grapes that could match those straight off the vine.

I love that grape juice. Last time I was there it was a delicacy, but it looks like you picked enough graped this year to make a bucket full! Yummy. If I was honest I wish I was coming to see you again instead of Hawaii...I miss it/you there.
