Love Saturday

It still will be the morning to finish what I did not accomplish yesterday, but at least I will be done early to "play" a little.  I have spent at least an hour doing online paperwork while looking out the window at my crazy dog chasing squirrels away from the bird feeder. While it is a holiday weekend and we do tend to "celebrate" I was reminded of the wine glasses and martini glasses that I have designed.  I can't tell you how many of these I have done for silent auction charities and gifts.  (you know who you are)  It fun and pretty easy.  Although I don't have a step by step tutorial, the visual of the final product might do.  Next chance I get I will take photos of the process.  Years ago, back from the 3rd house, I was lucky enough to aquire spools and spools of copper wire.  I pretty much triple the length of the wire and cut two.  After wrapping the ends and leaving some extra to make a "curly' design, I start adding glass beads.  It's kind of like braiding but with only two strands.  Anyway, I make at least four the same theme of color or make the beads match the shade of the glass.  It just gives the stem some flair and gives you something to play with when in deep conversation while holding your wine or cosmo!  Also tagging a special bead or charm on the end give the glass a ID of who it belongs to!  Cheers!!  Have a super Saturday!
