It’s Wine Time

28 Dec

So this time of year especially, does anyone else have a hardcore collection of empty wine bottles hanging in their recycling bin?   Anyone??

Well I know I’m not the only one, so thanks to my Dad’s great suggestion, and Mom’s dedicated assistance with providing empty wine bottles (hehe) this post is all about what you can do with the bottles AFTER the wine is gone.  The party AIN’T over people!

Not only does this post help save the environment (whoohoo!) but the suggestions here are all relatively inexpensive.  So rather than my usual LOVE IT and WANT IT section…. Let’s go straight to the GET IT.
