|I think my friend Lisa just rolled her eyes at my selection of wine. We love Columbia Crest wine...is that terrible? It's only $6.99 a bottle. Lisa lived in France for a few years and she gave us this linen towel on one of our visits to Paris. And since it went with my red and white theme...I guess I should have picked up a few bottles of French wine.|
