What Ive been up to

This has to be one of the longest project Ive worked on, well from start to finish. I've started collecting corks many years ago. Both from what I've consumed and also from working in a restaurant.
So even if its been a long process its been a very fun process.
As I was putting this corkboard together I didnt quite plan it out very well, but I had a great time thinking of where most of them came from.

I loved the R's, yea just cause its my initial.

The cork in the bottom there, yup the upside down one that says fre, I bought that for our end of the year party when I was pregnant. It was alcohol free wine, I wouldnt recomend it.

One of those cakebread corks I saved when I sold my first bottle waitressing. It was a $95 bottle of wine and it felt like a huge accomplishment. The couple gave me the cork and even saved a glass for me, it was very good wine, I wouldnt pay $95 for it, but it was very good.

I just loved these!

There it is all finished... FINALLY! The frame I talked about here when I gave a new life to old frames.

Now to just hang it on the wall!
And the question is....

Im linking to these parties {here}

I made a cork wreath for our kitchen out of all our corks. it has the champangne bottle cork that came from our hotel in new york, when we found out I was pregnant with our first born and the hubs wouldn't let me even take a sip. All all the other corks, including the fre corks from my pregnancy as well. I also had enough to make a cork tree as a centerpiece for the table at christmas time.

Cute! We don't drink so I had no idea that corks came in colors other than, well, cork-colored. I like that you know the stories behind them, too!
