Get Cute with Cork

Usually the only time I come in contact with Cork is when I am opening a bottle of wine, which happens often, ha ha! But - Cork has come a long way from just the wine bottle, it has made its way into the fashion world! We have all seen wedges and sandals with a Cork heel, but have you seen shoes that are ALL Cork? There are some out there and some of them are pretty cute!




And it doesn't stop with shoes . . .

Cork iPhone pouch
How bout a Cork USB drive?? I think this is cute!! Would make a cute little gift for your computer savvy friends!




Now back to fashion: Cork clutches


Not done yet . . .

How bout a cork cuff?

This last cuff can be used in more ways then just on your wrist:
Etsy has some cute handmade jewelry out of cork:

Initial Cork Necklace
Silver Cork Ring

These are just a few things made out of Cork, there are so many more unique creations out there. Once you have seen some of the things you can do with Cork, you will never look at that bottle of wine the same again! I throw all of my wine corks in a decanter when I open a bottle, not sure what I will do with them all but it looks cute in my kitchen!
