of wines & bottles...

Nothing like sipping your favourite red wine with friends on a Saturday evening, over some interesting conversation...My husband loves Red Wine & I indulge occasionally :-) We've tried many Indian wines and Sula -Cabernet Shiraz from Nashik Valley is good. I love the packaging which is very Indian.(Did I mention I collect interesting wine bottles ;-)
Love the Sun graphic on the lid...Ok and then what do you do with empty wine bottles?

The wine bottles are glorious, and the pothos you root in them when they are empty is one of my favourite plants.

I quite enjoy Sula and we always keep a bottle or two at home :)

An idea for old wine bottles - if you have a terrace/open area, you can hang/hook the wine bottles (after taking off the label) on the wall in a straight line or 'one up-one down' style. You can put dry twigs in these, or when entertaining, you can put a single stem of flower (gerbera usually does the trick) in each. Looks awesome! :)

Arch said...

blue- Thanks :-))
Panache- I have not tried that, I shd:-)

bhavna- I love placing a single gerbera in each bottle and then lining it together in a row...but hanging thing is a nice idea...maybe I shd try it out sometime :-))
