like any typical wine lover, i habitually save wine corks from any memorable bottles in a big vase on one of my kitchen counters. that vase has now overflowed to an adjacent bowl, at which point i thought maybe i should make a plan for what to do with all these corks. i have thought of making cork boards, but then this wikihow article popped up in a friend’s tweet, and now it’s got me thinking about birdhouses. can we take a moment to admire the champagne cork cage fashioned into a tiny chair on the porch? precious! and i’m downright ashamed to admit that stamping wasn’t an automatic no-brainer for me. they’re small, but they last a lot longer than carved potatoes!
