I have an opening that goes from my kitchen to my living room. I have wanted to figure out something to put there during the Christmas season for a while.  I finally had an idea and I thought the perfect way to get it done.   I had seen videos on Youtube.com and Pinterest.com talking about how “easy” it is to drill a hole in wine bottles.  I had originally thought that I would drill holes in the back to hang the bottles and to put the lights through and also for venting .   HA! um…no.  Not easy in the slightest. So not easy, that It didn’t happen.  What I thought was going to be a quick and easy project that I had enough energy and my pain level was okay for, became frustrating, pain inducing, and draining, and an all day episode.  However, I did get it done and It is beautiful and my daughter actually says that it looks really cool (which is an accomplishment because she usually says fine)

So today, I am grateful for perseverance and ingenuity.
