Oh my goodness.  That just sets the bar WAY TOO HIGH for the rest of us.  Everything is gorgeous!

I'm afraid dharma_rebel has set it even higher! I honestly cannot believe the package I opened today. See for yourself:


Four beautiful wine glasses, each with a different charm. My favorite is "i believe" (as in, "i believe i'll have another glass!"), a resin tray with wine labels, a wine bottle platter or wall hanging- I'll most likely serve cheese on this, and a box of wine cards. OK. That is an incredible package, BUT, that's not even half of what she sent!! Here is the rest:

There's some wine crackers (I can't wait to try those out!), another shot of one of the glasses so hopefully you can see it better, some great wine charms, a fun pair of earrings (the charm is a silver wine glass), some magnets, two packs of wine art, a wine journal, a fun keyring, a pad of paper, and even a Napa Valley air freshener. Whew! I'm out of breath!! Is it any wonder I feel like Christmas came again?

I wish I had a better picture of the glassses. They are a silver wire wrapped with a thinner copper wire and beaded. They are beautiful. dharma_rebel, thank you so, so much. I feel utterly and totally spoiled. Tonight my husband and I shall toast your generosity with our new fun wine glasses. Cheers!  Grin

Hahahaha!  That's really great stuff!  Since I'm a knitter.... where did you find the pattern for that wine sleeve?  It looks amazing!

Oops, in my excitement, I forgot to answer your question. I am not a knitter. That sleeve is actually a sleeve from a sweater I felted. I slipped it over a bottle, traced a circle larger than the bottom, and then sewed the sides and bottom together first on the machine, and then with a blanket stitch.

i'm glad you liked everything, rackycoo! i debated on doing the wine glasses since i had done martini glasses in the last swap. i was afraid it wouldn't be much of a surprise. but you said you collect decorative wine glasses, so i went ahead and sent. so glad you liked!!!

I DO collect decorative wine glasses. I like for everyone to have a different style glass. (Easier to spot if you foolishly put your glass down!)

Thanks again!  Grin

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!! I love the wine glasses, they are so different! So it's copper wine twisted around the silver wire and wrapped around the glass, right? With beads?

yeah. i use a heavy guage silver wire and get a think copper wire. i make the ends into curly cues and wrap the copper wire with some sead beeds or whatever i think will look cool. on the bottom you can add a charm! it's super easy, and people LOVE them. i did a set for my office gift exchange, and everyone fought over them!
