I collect...

 CORKS!...but so do friends of mine FOR me...as I really hardly ever drink wine...just socially...so collecting on my own would be a hard slog, and a lengthy task...
 I have been meaning to craft something out of them...and have been collecting ideas...
 I love their history...where they're all from...they travel from every part of the World. South Africa,Austrailia,Europe,Chile,America...
 I love the different textures of cork used...the colours the wine has made the cork...
 One day I will make a LARGE Art installment for our dining room...
 BUT...until then...for you...
 carefully one by one...
a heart is born...

This post was inspired by KENZI over here and I was reminded by "K" from over here that I should be crafting SOMETHING out of them!!!

What do you collect??

Have a lovely Thursday...until tomorrow.

When I read your post I couldn't help smiling :)

You see we are a wine drinking family, we LOVE great wines and over the years we amassed 100's of corks. I was going to make an art project out of them but then realised I would seriously never get around to it and as we are now trying to downsize our home I recently sold them all on Etsy very quickly, I was amazed at how many people want to buy corks.

Hope one day you get to make your art piece. I will look forward to seeing it :) T.
