road trip :: wine country

We drew bingo cards for the ride & packed into the truck for an "andventcher."  We cut up post-it's for markers & have a new favorite phrase: 

 

"A boat! Hand the man a post-it!"

 

"Sheep!  Sheep! Hand the man a post-it!"

 

Soon enough Bake was squishing grape ghosts in this ancient press.  White paint + embossed metal + weathered wood + chocolate rust &...and...metallic-Mediteranean-blue-green.  The trip could have ended, right there.
