Cork reindeer

7???????????????????????????????DSCN0558

It never fails. Any time I am selling my wine cork designs at art shows or craft fairs, a handful of people will look at me with eyebrows raised, and then exclaim, “Someone must be drinking A LOT of wine.” I enthusiastically reply, “It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it. My friends are also very supportive of my work. They keep drinking in the name of art!” I love how friends now give me bags of old corks with their expired People magazine subscriptions when they see me, like it’s the most common thing ever. I forget that this isn’t normal in other circles.

Old school wine corks are hard to come by these days. I don’t use synthetic corks in my designs, and screw tops….well, screw top reindeer would just look odd in my opinion. These little critters each have their own personalities, created by the specific tilt of their various sized cork heads, stick legs, and antlers.

These are great hostess gifts to give with a bottle of wine. Or it’s a good gift for fans of Bambi, a hunter, or someone who likes venison. Or not. Maybe it’s just a great gift because you like how it looks and think someone else will as well.
