These made such a unique house warming gift for my wine loving cousin. She absolutely loved them and put them out as soon as she got them. Transaction was easy and we were in constant communication to make this the perfect gift. Melissa even included a house warming note that added the perfect touch! Thanks again. Will definitely be shopping again.

I love the vases, Melissa! They arrived fully intact within a week of my purchase. I'm hosting a Viva Italia backyard party in July and these will be perfect for the tables! I will submit a picture after the party. Thanks again for your great product and great service!

About

Here's what happens when you're a wine lover who can't bear to toss beautiful bottles into the recycle bin...

In 2011, my husband and I cut the tops off of about 15 wine bottles to use as vases at our wedding. As wine lovers, we thought this was the perfect way to pay homage to our favorite vintages while injecting a little fun and creativity into the table assignments at our reception. People loved the vases and asked us if we could make some for them.

After the honeymoon, I decided to start an Etsy store where I could upcycle my favorite wine bottles and give fellow wine lovers access to cute wedding centerpieces - or unique gifts to pass on to friends and family. I expanded the shop to include wine bottle top candle holders and hurricanes and other products made from corks.

And then, in the summer of 2013, my husband and I decided to move to the wine country north of Santa Barbara.

Busy with the move, I set my store to vacation mode. I intended to pick up business again after I was settled. But house renovations got the best of my time and it took 2 1/2 years for me to reopen for business.

Happy to be back at it and excited to share new products with the other oenophiles on Etsy.
