Another great idea that I've stolen from my mother! I love to have a little sparkle in my kitchen - something fun when we have people over.
I've taken an interesting wine bottle (I like this one, seeing as how my initials are A.A. ... no comments on THAT, please), some inexpensive Christmas lights, and a fun topper I picked up at the craft store, and combined them to add a little bling to the kitchen counter. Please note: you really need the 20 light strand of Christmas lights, and make sure they are NOT connectible. The other end plug usually does not fit through the top of the bottle.
