Wine Charming

With the festive season revving up, I thought I'd make some wine charms.  I hate getting wine glasses mixed up, asking "Is this my glass?" and examining lipstick marks to see who's glass is whose.  The first set I made is for champagne flutes.

I bought wine charm rings and letter beads from Overflow and simply thread the letters onto the ring.

  I spelt out the names of French champagnes.

Which is your favourite when you indulge?

Then I  made a set of charms for wine.

For this set I bought silver coloured beads from Spotlight and used some metal letters I bought years ago from BigW.  I chose the first letter of my friends names that are regular visitors here. 

I think they turned out well, but I'm in real trouble if Jus, Jules, and Jen all come over together!

This tray is my latest purchase.  I love that it's a bit wonky and rustic.  It was on sale for $16 from Perfect Living in Oxford Street, Bulimba.  It is one of the most beautiful homewares/decor shops in Brisbane and I love it every time I visit.

Now, I need to create some fridge space for Christmas drinks.

  5. I don't drink wine, so I wasn't paying attention to the charms, but I just had to comment that I love your blue & white pots :)
