Hermann Wine Trail #2

I am finally getting around to posting the second half of our photos from the Hermann Wine Trail.

This is another family owned winery with beautiful views.

We loved their beautiful views, but didn't have much time to enjoy them.  They were closing soon after we arrived.

Robller Vineyard Winery

Aside from the views of the river at Oak Glenn, this was by far the most beautiful location.  Not long after we arrived, the sun started to set over the Missouri countryside.  It was stunning.

Mardi Gras Time!

When I decided that I wanted use deco mesh around our door, I never realized what I would have to go through to find it!  In Louisiana, every store has deco mesh.  Even Wal-Mart and Sam's carry rolls of it.  After calling and visiting over a dozen stores, I found it!  I've given up on finding large Mardi Gras ornaments to complete the look, so this will have to work for this year. 

I have some extra gold and green deco mesh, so we may add some swags down the stairs.

We had to move our favorite wreath to the second front door since our door is too small for it and the deco mesh wrap.

A Mardi Gras flag on the third floor completes the decor.
