Saturday Snapshot...Wineries of Niagara

etched in glass
painted leaves

A few weeks ago the manager of of the facility we paint at came to us and asked if we would come up with a painted project for her to give as a thank you gift to a speaker at one of the conferences she was organizing.  It was one, it grew to 5 and now to 25 persons who would receive our painted pieces.  We had a budget.  I think we did pretty well.  The conference is being held at a winery in the Niagara Region.  The little wood piece you see in the photos sits on a bottle of wine, and two glasses hang from the sides.  About 8 of us worked on them each with their own personal touch.  Some ladies etched their glasses, and a couple of us (me and Sue) painted.   50 glasses and 25 bottle collars.  Quite a challenge.

You all did a great job! I especially like the "Blossoms".

Absolutely gorgeous, dear Irene. And what a clever idea. My favorite glasses are the yellow ones! xoxo
