Champagne, anchois, et du linge sur un fil

(For challenges n° 69, a beverage, and 80, something that makes you happy.)

A beverage, and something that makes me happy... that would be champagne! At work my team has a tradition of drinking champagne very often since one a us was from Champagne and used to bring bottles almost every week. We group to buy loads of it directly from a little producteur in Champagne so it's not that expensive.
For me champagne means friends and good times. All kind of things happen in life, not always that good, but whatever happens it's good to know we can always have that!
As usual I didn't think and my page was to short for the bottle... solved that little problem easily!
I don't like the color of my bottle, it's too light, like a beer bottle! Not noble at all...


I drew the anchoïade I made to eat as appetizer. It's made with anchovies, garlic, a very tiny drop of vinegar, and olive oil. You eat it with dry bread and vegetable cut in sticks, like carrots, calliflower, anything you like. I also drew the coffee beans to eat after the anchoïade, for example if you want to still be able to kiss someone.

This is at my parents place. My daughter was playing with a little boy and all was peaceful. I love seeing laundry hang like that. I love to hang it, to fold it, everything about it. The only house chore I like, really! My drawing, I don't like it much, except the tree. It was better without the color. It looks better scanned than in reality, I think.
