No Wining!

Not doing too much mini-ing lately...I'm sure at my best I would have trouble keeping up with all you talented and productive miniaturists, but I sure enjoy your inspirations!
I am, however, quite proud of my little wine-bottling venture today. I had purchased three plain and empty wine bottles as I thought it would be fun to fill and label them myself. The pharmacist gave me a funny look when I told her what I wanted the syringe for, but who cares - it was worth it :-) These bottles are filled with real red wine, stoppered with a blob o' glue, and wrapped with tin foil (which I'm thinking I'll paint gold). Size-wise I think the bottles are a little too small and my wine glasses are a bit too big, but when I compared the difference to a 1:1 glass and bottle it wasn't too bad. I will however, be getting more bottles so I can try a little bit bigger and see how that goes.
Anyhoo, I also did some flowers from bits and bobs from Micheal's fake plant department (and used the cap off my syringe for a "frosted glass" vase! :-)

Have a great day!

What a great idea to label your own bottles - I must store that idea away! It's a lovely arrangement.

Dear Cynthia, more wine is fine, as the bottle is small!
I really like the scene: the wine and flowers, with bread and grapes, are a beautiful still life.
Mini hugs, Flora

I like your mini scene.

The flowers are very pretty and your idea with the wine bottle labels is great!

Have a nice day, too.
