Insert Creative Title Here

To say that I drink a lot of wine is an understatement. I love wine. Wine, wine, wine. I only drink red wine, and typically a Cabernet Saviorn (spl? CAB for short). I buy my wine six bottles at a time because you get 10% off when you do that. You also get a nifty reusable bag. I have collected three of these. And one time I remembered to bring mine...which means since I have moved into my house on July 4th I (not completely alone...) have consumed at least 24 bottles of wine. Wow.

Now you would think that by drinking so much wine I must have an awesome system for picking great bottles, right? WRONG! I have a few faves (Mad Housewife, Gnarly Head) but I mostly pick wine based on the picture on the cover or the funny name. And ones that have dogs in the name or on the label are always winners.

So I have decided to stat blogging about the bottles of wine I drink in an effort to keep track of ones I like and enlighten anyone who might be a wine enthusiast, like myself.

Also, on another semi-related topic, not sure if I mentioned it before but Anchorage has stopped recycling glass. Which due to my enthusiasm for all things wine has caused quite a problem for me. I still save glass. It hurts my heart to throw it away, but now what do I do with it? I need some really cool craft project that uses anything glass. Ideas?

Too bad they're not transparent, then you could fill them with heavily starched (so they don't get squished) bits of fabric.

We know people that have a bottle bush... It was all upside down bottles on the branches. But, that might be not such a good idea, seeing as how you have quite a few bottles to deal with and then they would be outside.

I'm sure you'll think of something that'll blow our socks off, though!
