{Silver Grape Scissors with Roses and Champagne Grapes}

On August 22, I was finally able to make some outdoor photos, using our Silver Grape Scissors and the Champagne Grapes that we found at Trader Joe's the week before. I had not seen them in quite a while... 
So it's off to our balcony, the new polyurethane balustrade and railings are not yet painted but nevertheless.
Here they are... Silver Grape Scissors from Sweden, on our silver gallery tray.
Again it is shown with two gifts that I received from Susan, the author of Ava Grace's Closet; the filet lace hand crocheted doily that lines the tray and the very finely crocheted lace table topper.
On the silver gallery tray are two Baccarat Champagne glasses...
Susan's Mama did such an excellent job on crocheting these pieces.
Thanks again Susan!
Have you ever tasted Champagne Grapes?
They are so sweet and a lot tinier than regular seedless grapes.
Here you can see the roses and leaves on the Silver Grape Scissors.
Some sweet golden wine is poured into the Baccarat champagne glasses.
Some laughing cow cheese and crackers from +Costco to go with the grapes and wine.
Mary's Gone Crackers are ORGANIC • GLUTEN FREE made with Whole Grains & Seeds and contain no added oils or trans-fats, sugar or dairy.
Why don't you join?
China is French GIEN ROSE.
For the moment, the sun is shining...

      Oh, I do admire such fine work done by any woman's hands! Even having done lots of crocheting myself such as fine handkerchiefs and gloves, this table topper is so fine and delicate. A piece to admire and also the doily in the silver tray...!

      Guess those Champagne Grapes are not available all the time and everywhere as I never found them locally either. They are like mini grapes and oh so juicy and sweet!
      It is a glorious combination.

  6. Che bella presentazione hai fatto Mariette. Uva, formaggio, crakers, un'abbinata curiosa ma sicuramente vincente. Se poi ci aggiungiamo lo Champagne.....allora il tutto diventa molto raffinato.

      These tiny and very sweet Champagne grapes are are the name given to a specific type of grape, the Corinth. Only being used fresh, for table decoration and for black currants. I will post about them next to explain a bit more and also about the grape scissors.
      So you do prefer pink champagne? I love Champagne's sexy Italian cousin; Prosecco...
      We have very dreary weather right now with some rain drizzle but it will get sunnier towards the end of the week.
      Hugs and happy day ahead for you!

    What a lovely celebration of the day. Champagne grapes are a great favorite of our but we don't see them every year. I freeze them and eat them for little pops of frosty sweetness. I also love the way a few look in a glass of champagne.

    Enjoy the sun while it's available..........*s*

    1. Dearest Suzi,
      That's a very clever idea for freezing them!
      They for sure are excellent for use in a special table setting.
      The sun will be out again later in the week... we have dark dreary days with drizzle.
      Hugs to you,

I'm a full time student now, so I have found that I have no time for blogging. I'm so sorry that I cannot visit your lovely blog so often as I would like to.

  20. Dat ziet er heel gezellig uit en wat een mooi schaartje. De druifjes ken ik als muscaatdruiven, heel aparte smaak.En de wijn is die ook van dat soort druiven gemaakt? Een desssertwijn? Proost!

    1. Lieve Janny,
      Ja dat is altijd een mooi tafereel, ook met deze mini druifjes. Nee deze druifjes zijn géén muscaatdruiven. Champagne druiven ontlenen hun naam aan een specifiek type van druiven, de Korinthe. Ze worden ook gebruikt voor zwarte krenten. Er wordt géén wijn van gemaakt.
      De wijn is uit Californië en die is wel van de muscaatdruif! MUSCAT BLANC A PETITS GRAINS uit 2006 en zoet.
      Maar het is ook weer niet de lekkere dessertwijn zoals Moscato d'Asti uit Italië die maar 5.5% alcohol bevat. Dat is een van mijn lievelingswijntjes voor ná een lekkere maaltijd. Je koopt hem meestal in half liter flesjes.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

      Thank you for your compliment but it is not champagne in that bottle but a Californian 2006 Moscato wine and it's sweet, therefore good for accompanying cheese and healthy crackers. The laughing cow is healthy low fat cheese that we can take with our cholesterol restricted diet.
      We will have dinner with friends over the weekend; that's always a great thing to do. I don't mind the work; it is so rewarding.
      Happy weekend to you as well and you better rest up!

  24. Dearest Maiette ... I have not yet seen champagne grapes at the Italian grocer in the town close to our country home. But I'm hoping soon.. or else I will have to go into the city. Your setting is lovely - the crochet work is beautiful .. Susan is such a wonderful friend and her mama is so talented. Wish I could be sitting with you and Susan and Pieter enjoying your beautiful setting and gardens.

      You were the first one having them on your blog that I noticed and I loved it when you had the outside tea with champagne grapes also... One day I hope we are able to sit together for tea and for dinner! Who knows? Maybe some people pick up some idea for how to identify their heirloom silver or when they purchase a certain beautiful piece.

      Thank you for your kind and complimenting comment. I'm glad that you learned something about the Corinth grapes. It often has to do with other continents where things are called different and when it comes back to the country of origin one wonders. Most people would not even now that Corinth is a Greek City-State.
      Surely I enjoy my crocheted gifts and my grape scissors. They are such lovely silver work with roses.
      Hugs to you and happy weekend.
