As for the corks that come out of the bottles we're consuming, we're taking after my dear Aunt Judi and saving them. Judi has a huge tub full of them in her great room. It's quite an impressive collection. We've been marking a few of our wine corks with important dates that we popped open a wine bottle for...like holidays and birthdays, and even cinco de mayo:)!
And we've been placing the corks in this 'vase' of sorts. It's the same set up we used for this post.
It's been fun to watch the cork level rise:). Has anyone else been collecting wine corks? Has anyone made art out of them?
