Prince Charming and I love it when for a special occasion or while on vacation we can enjoy a great meal paired with great wine. Over the seven years we have been married we have enjoyed many of these meals. Being the scrapbooker that I am I always keep the cork's from the bottles. You know, to use as memorabilia.
After we would finish a bottle I would write the place, date and occasion (if it would all fit) on the cork and put it in a ziploc bag in my memorabilia box.
I have corks from anniversary dinners, our Italy trip, our honeymoon and many more. These corks had been sitting in that bag for years just waiting for me to figure out a way to use them.
Recently, when we decorated our family room I finally got an idea on how to display them. I had a decorative dish that had been a gift years before from a good friend that had never been unpacked when we moved into our house. I also had a three wick orange candle that would look perfect on the dish. I found both in a box in the crawl space and set them on a table in the family room. Then I grabbed my bag of corks and... VIOLA!
Just another idea on how to "scrapbook" and share your memories in an untraditional way.
