Ever Feel Like You’ve Had Too Much Wine? Me Neither

Normally, I do not do more than one post a day, but I was having too much fun with this one not to share it with all of you.  As most of you know, I love my wines.  And these pictures will show that it is kind of a running theme in my house, my art, and my life in general.  I am doing my part to help save the planet one wine bottle at a time, as well as recycling as many corks as I can into something fun and useful at the same time.  Life is way to short to take things too seriously.  Have fun.  Enjoy.  And while enjoying life, take time to enjoy the wines as well.

I painted both the pictures, the wine bottle and the wine glasses.  The bottle of Pinot Blanc is my own label of wine that we bottled, and if you look closely, it is the same photo as one of the pictures.  It is one of my Saint Bernards, Vinnie, with “his own glass of wine”.  I also made the serving tray and the trivet.  Most of the other items were made from other friends of mine.  There is a plant holder filled with succulents, a place card holder, a Christmas reindeer, and two serving dishes, and some other fun festive decorating ideas to boot.  One of the flattened wine bottles I use as a  butter dish, and the other I just put some jellie bellies in so you could see the versatility.  I like things that are fun and functional at the same time.  I hope you have as much with this post as I did putting it all together.

Check out the shoes.  Two of my favorite things, dogs and wine.  Who knew?

A partial sampling of my “wine cellar” downstairs.  We have more upstairs in the kitchen too.  My house always has wine.

Just one glass of wine a day, right?!

  1. Hi there. I loved this post and I am glad that you were able to have fun. Now if I had my way i would have that amount of wine and whiskeys in my house too. Great idea with the corks. I wonder if I can design a pair of shoes with cat prints and beers. Your posts are fantastic with a touch of humor. I hope you have a great week.
