Wine Bottle Chandelier

Sterling Industries 2-Light Collector's Pendant Wine Bottle Lighting

Upside-down wine bottles are a bummer simply because that usually means they are empty. (And if it doesn’t mean that, then they soon would be!) However, staring down the end of a bottle doesn’t have to be necessarily all bad. This wine bottle chandelier (officially named the Sterling Industries 2-Light Collector’s Pendant for some reason), looks to give all those empties a new life. And hey, the day after the party you can give any stragglers something to do.

Room enough for 300 wine corks, all held in place with a flat, see-though, acrylic top, the tabletop contrivance offers a neat and tidy solution for storing and displaying wine corks. That is, until the sparkles, glue and paint set gets busted out.

Beer Cupcake?

Wilton Beer Mug Icing Decorations

Well, not exactly. But the Wilton Beer Mug Icing Decorations are halfway there. Bake a cupcake, top it off with one of these neat little edible beer mugs and tell everybody that they are made with beer. Hey, if Jack in the Box can give us the Bacon Shake, why not?

Squirrel Coffee Cup

Squirrel Coffee Cup by Accoutrements

Um… it’s a Squirrel Coffee Cup. The squirrel is not included. It’s currently $6.73. For a little porcelain cup. Like little-little. Just over an inch square. Nope, I don’t get it. But for those that do, here’s a squirrel* to go with it.
