I started collecting wine corks a little while ago. For no particular reason. Then I decided I could make something out of them. Right now I have them in an over-sized margarita glass. They are fun to take photos of!

Theresa and I have a collection of them, too. We haven't figured out what we're going to make yet, have you?

Hi Doug and Theresa!
I've no idea how you found my blog, but it's great to hear from you :-)
Corks- I saw a really good door wreath made from corks once...??
I'm told they make good pot stands too.. how creative are you?

I've been following you for a while now, I don't remember how I found you. Maybe Dick posted a link?

I've been thinking of looking for a shadow box and gluing them into it to make a "cork board" for the kitchen to post notes on. I'm not sure how well that would work, though.

I doubt if I'm crafty enough to make a pot stand, but if you find plans post a link. :-)

I saw someone on slashfood (I think?) make a tray with his corks, but I'm not sure I'm creative enough for that. Not all of our corks are made of cork; we have quite a few plastic ones, too, and there's no way to incorporate the ones from sparkling wines that have the different shape.

I may be overthinking this subject, though. :-)
