For me, half of the excitement of opening up a bottle of wine or champagne is having the chance to use a special bottle stopper.
Right now, I'm not quite sure if my shop could procure the necessary license for serving up spirits. At least of the alcoholic kind, that is. Rest assured, there will be other spirits that may be seen from time to time in my shop. After all, what would a shop on the Coast of Maine be without talk of a legendary haunting!
So for now while I'm sitting here being a teetotaler, I may as well use a bottle that spent some time in the sea to display this pretty sea horse bottle stopper. Washed with barnacles it's a dreamy sight.
Can you imagine the excitement of standing on the shore and having these lovelies wash up at your feet!
Here's a little closer look at Mother Nature's handiwork, in case you're a little like me and find it hard to decide which is your favorite one.
Secretly, I hope my shop does that to people.
I envision a display of these bottles running all along the window sills of my shop where they will catch the light, as well as the eye of a passing potential customer.
