Evidence of Recent Consumption

A bottle of wine disappears so quickly…it’s a shame really. I started taking pictures of the labels on the wine we were drinking so I could look back later and remember. Over time I have ended up with hundreds and hundreds of photos on my phone of labels…now what? It’s like having all those leftover corks, what do you do with them?

What I decided to do with my label photos was to create a blog post with a slideshow of the pics to not only show you what we have been drinking, but for myself as well. You see, this blog started out being a place where we could go and see all the places we’ve been, food we’ve eaten, wines we’ve had, and any other Hoot n Annie type stuff we wanted to have memories of.

So here ya go, another slideshow of “My Alcoholic Life”. Cheers!

    An idea for the labels – you might actually print the pictures and turn a boring table into a treasure trove of wine labels. Somehow stick them to the tabletop and then lacquer over them…or you could make a serving tray or a lazy susan or cover the outside of one of your s**t boxes or cover a wine barrel with them! Just some thoughts for you crafty folks!

      LOL…good stuff Heather. We actually were taking labels off of bottles for quite some time and wanted to collage our pub table. We’ll see if that actually ever happens…sometimes talking the talk is more fun than walking the walk.

    You might want to grab a smart phone app that helps keep track of what you drink. I tested several and settled on “Wine Notes” for the iPhone. In addition to a photo of the label, you can enter just about all the data on the bottle plus tasting notes. You then have a searchable data base synced to all your devices.

      Ed, sorry for the late response…we were not getting email notifications about comments. Thanks for the recommendation. We have partially used this blog as a database of what we have drank but an app would be much better. The only problem is I get lazy…or too buzzed and forget. LOL. Cheers man!
