Repurposed Wine and Beer Bottles: 2011 edition

By the time you read this, I will have been on a train for at least 6 hours. Most likely I’ll be exhausted, grumpy, and perhaps I’ll be making my way to the food and drink car (do they still have those?) for an early morning pick-me-up (or knock-me-out as the case may be), the likes of which one might also find here:

I’m crazy for the idea of cork journaling. Lord knows, we go through our share at my house. BC and I brought a bottle of a wine we shared over a meal in Paris back to the US and drank it one of the first nights we lived together. Would have been so cool if I’d thought to note the date on the cork!  My friend MK has an awesome collection to that effect, which she keeps in a giant glass vase. Pretty neat to see the remains of lots of fun nights all in one place – without the remains of a hangover.
