Oh, Martha

I love you! You are a DIY craft genius!

Under her 25 Eco Chic Ideas for Your Home is this cork trivet which I think is a wonderful idea!

They don't just keep your wine from spilling and spoiling; corks can also protect your tables and countertops from hot pots and pans. 1. For a medium-sized trivet, collect at least 50 uniformly sized corks. 2. Stand them upright and arrange them into a tight circle. 3. Surround corks with an 8- to 10-inch metal hose clamp (sold in the plumbing section of the hardware store). 4. Tighten the clamp to bind the corks together and then trim the excess clamp with metal clippers. Cost: about $3
To jump-start my eco-living, I am going to collect those wine corks. Donations from alcoholic friends and relatives are welcome ;)

How funny. I have been going back and forth to the site since Im part of the recycling project here in Magallanes. Also, trying to look for nice ideas for my cooking class next next week. The cork holders are fab. Now if only we drank that much still. Haha.
