A home for my photographs
folks do lots of crafty things with them. maybe you'll find your muse one of these days. :)
Wine corks are pretty neat. I don't collect them, but always keep a few around-just in case!
What a coincidence...I collect them, too. I have gobs of them and cannot decide how to use them. Cut some in half thinking I would make a cork Christmas wreath, but I did not like the way it was going. Do you have some suggestion of something unusual we might create? The photo turned out so well. The lighting is perfect. genie
I'm with you on drinking the wine. Well, I do live in California with plenty of wineries close by. I never have gotten into the habit of collecting the corks, though.
Well, I don't collect corks, but I do enjoy my wine and what a great way to wind down the day! Who knows maybe I'll start paying more attention to the corks now and star collection them as well!!! Hope you had a great weekend, Karen!!

perhaps to savor sweet memories associated with a certain bottle of wine.:pcool shot!
You are funny I love that shot. I love corks to I don't know why:) B
I do the same thing ;-)
Lovely macro ~ love wine corks ~ (A Creative Harbor) ^_^
Wonderfully captured. I guess those are things that valuable to collect :)
Very interesting ... excellent composition, colors and texture.
I love whine too and sometimes I keep the cork and then I think why.... S off they go.
Well, it makes for a great photo! Cheers!
Thats a nice still life - I find it hard to get things in focus once I pulled the cork on a bottle!Stewart M - Melbourne
Just read Stewart's comment - too funny. I like them too. Something about the texture of them for me.I like how you put them together - great idea for a macro and well done!
Great composition! And love the textures and warm tones.
fun photo Karen... I enjoy wine too. Please stop by my blog today, there is something special waiting for you.
I love your picture! Just today, I asked for some wonderful corks because I thought they might be a good photo object. Telling from your picture, I was right! Plus, you've got perfect light. Great shots!
I've never thought of keeping the corks. Trouble is a lot of wine bottles now have screw caps. Hope you find a use for them :))
well here's the thing. I have drawers of corks, plastic bags of corks, boxes of corks. I began collecting them with a purpose - I saw cork curtains in the windows of a local Italian restaurant and decided I was going to do that in my kitchen. I simply need to drill the holes, string them, and get them on the windows. Once friends learned of my intent, they started giving me corks. Lots and lots of corks. If I ever get the project completed I'll take a photo for you! happy week to you Karen.
My friend's husband collects them and makes them into things, but I can't remember what he makes.... I think they are wreaths for the holidays.. Michelle
