I purchased a group of wood wine (6) boxes off of e-bay that came in Friday


and in prepration of using them for presenting Christmas gifts of my wines I had a friend make me up some metal, adhesive backed tags with my "Cats Meow Winery" logo on them.





In these pictures, I had already sanded off all the brand and winery info from the boxes and affixed my Logo to them.





This one is going to my Daughter, Sherrie. My Son will get an identical one.

Smurfe

I knew someone was going to ask that question smurf and as it turns out, this wine was an accumulation of various wines I had made. At bottling and rackings I just kept adding the left overs to bigger bottles, then gallon jugs and finally ended up wit 3 gallon of what has turned out to be a truly awesome wine that my Son, Daughter and several others just raved over. Hence the design for the label. I did not know whaty to call it. For sure it was a one of a kind and will never ever be duplicated again. They are getting the last two bottles for Christnas.

Thanks all...I continually look for ways and ideas to let those so special to me know just how much they mean to me.

Thats very funny Waldo because for the first time, I have that going on
in my basement right now. All products extracted from making room to
sweeten back the wines I've made. So far I have a 1/2 gallon of a
Cranberry, Strawberry Orange Banana, Welches Melomel. Dont know what it
tastes like though, believe it or not, I havent sampled it as of yet.

What a beautiful gift....
What is the wine with a
?????
My girlfriend lucked out at Happy Harry's Liquor Store one day, they were unpacking some Champagne in boxes much like that and they gave them to her...Some people have all the luck.
I don't count the bottles I give at Christmas...but tonight I will have 14 bottles in boxes to take along....some have gone away already...and 12 will be going to my bottle-people, so they surely do slip away....But we have all of next year to make more.

so this may be the wrong community to post to but I need help. I want to get my daughter (who is black) hand puppets for Christmas. Looking now due to expected shipping delays. more here I would like to get her somewhat fairytale-themed puppets, but am having trouble finding black characters. Any suggestions on where to look?

Aside from the somewhat obvious choices of Amazon, Target and Walmart; I'm wondering if Disney might have something. Good idea planning ahead.

That is a beautiful presentation, Waldo. Also, since Photobucket watermarks your pix (and I hate Photobucket for many reasons, lol), if you wish, you can simply click "Attach Files" below and directly upload your images. A few years back, PB decided not to free host images to websites anymore, so 15 years' worth of a car build thread I had been regularly posting to evaporated. If I had direct-loaded those photos instead, they'd still be there. Just saying. Did I mention I hate PB? 🤣
