My wine cork bulletin board has been an ongoing project for the last year and a half.
I didn't realize how long it would take to fill up the entire board! Yes, I could take the easy way out, and either buy wine corks online or ask others to save theirs for me, but I've decided that the majority of corks on this board will be from bottles that I've shared with friends and family.
I like knowing that each cork came from a tasty bottle of wine, a fine visit, and a shared laugh, all with those who are closest to my heart. It's really been a fun project.
I do have a confession to make: Before my project, I often chose my wine based on the clever and catchy graphic on the bottle (does anyone else do this??), but now I've actually started buying my wine based on the cork. I love when I open a bottle, and I am surprised to find such a unique or nicely designed cork.
Of course I keep the taste and price in mind when choosing a bottle, but I do love a fun cork!
My project is still only half complete, but I couldn't wait to post this beautiful quote from Mother Theresa on my board:
