Unusual Wine Glasses
Unique Ideas for Wine Drinkers
Ahhh, there is nothing like a glass of wine at the end of a long day. This is my favorite way to wind down from a very hectic day. Wine drinkers know what type of wine they enjoy but it is hard for someone to guess if a certain vintage will be to their liking without the all important smell of the bouquet and the taste against the pallet. One thing that I am sure of is that there is always a fun way to serve up that precious drink. I love nothing better than something fun and unusual. When the fun adds to a time honored ritual like the nightly partaking of the fruit of the vine it is even better. That is why I decided to put this lens together and share some fun glasses. Don't get me wrong nothing will ever replace the beautiful shape and feel of a true wine glass in my hand but it is great to do things different every once in awhile.

The fun design of these hand-blown glasses caught my eye immediately. They are truly unique and a guaranteed conversation starter. I was surprised that they are small enough to fit in your hand without being detected. The lack of a normal glass stem makes this possible.

Wine Glass Cork Saving Cage
Every year I save the cork from our New Years Eve bottle of champagne. I never had a place to keep them and after a few years they are laying here and there in my hutch. I saw this neat wine glass shaped cage that is just perfect to store them. This one has a chalkboard on front so I can easily put New Years Corks on it. I use a pen to put the year on each cork and with this cut container they will all be in one place.

I live in the country and seeing antlers on the deer is something I enjoy just about every day. These are real convincing antler wine glasses. Perfect for a cabin in the woods or for a log home. Fun and decorative these look great. I think this will dress up the dinner table in any home not just mine.

Ultimate Wine Bottle Glass
I saw this on the Thanksgiving special of "The Chew". It is a day time cooking show for those that do not know. When they showed this particular glass I really laughed and just had to add it here.
