'Bottle Beautiful'

So this idea hits me in the shower....you know when you bring a bottle of wine as a hostess gift but you want it to look nice? I rarely ever use those wine bags, I usually tie a pretty ribbon on and embellish it in some way.

Well, it came to me that I would make a 'wine cuff' - a decorative cuff that turns an ordinary bottle of wine into a 'Bottle Beautiful'. I must say my sister came up with that name. (thanks Mel!)

They slip easily over the neck of any standard wine bottle. (or any other bottled drink for that matter, including a decorative soap bottle by the sink)

They are completely re-usable so the recipient can keep it and continue to dress up her wine bottles...

Or she can do the unthinkable - re-gift!

They're now in my shop...

And so I leave you with this famous quote:

I cook with wine. Sometimes I even add it to the food.
