"Wine is the most civilized thing in the world." -Ernest Hemingway.

My mom and I love to go thrift storing. Sometimes you can find really great stuff for cheap! I have amassed a huge collection of vases and glassware from thrift stores. hehehe. :)
One thing I've been wanting for some time now is a wine rack.I'm not a heavy drinker but I like to relax with Justin on the porch with a great glass of wine some nights. The only problem that I was encountering was... where do I find one that will fit and that Pouka and Lucy won't knock down all the time? Tough question really... that and space is always an issue because my house is fairly limited. 

Luck was definitely on our side when we came across this guy for only 6.00 at our local Goodwill shop!



It was a steal! You could tell it was home made but that doesn't bother me at all. It would probably cost more in materials to make the thing then it did for me to buy it. I have a serious love for white semi-gloss paint. Partly because of my white beadboard in my living space I like when it feels once again "built in" I guess it's the cottage lover in me. With some paint.... which took a longggg time because there were so many nooks and crannies on this as well, it looks great! Now I just need some more wine to put in it don't you think? Anyone know of any good wines to try out and add to my collection?

  3. Very cute! I agree, Gewurztraminer is one of my favorites. I also like Riesling-Chateau Ste Michelle is a good one.
