I chose HOME for my charm...since I plan to keep this one on display at my house until the need arises.  The tag, key and pretty button were secured easily with a little bit of ribbon...
I added a little bling and ribbon to this cool black and white wine box...plan B if Im out of springs...
Here they are displayed on the porch.
I used words like Cherish, Lovely, Wish, and Delight.
Time for a close up...I think theyre kind of cute even without the wine...

Need a fun way to present your wine to you Valentine?  Or how about a gift for the "Hostess with the Most-est"...

Don't you just love having something in mind or on-hand when you get invited to a last minute get together?  Me too...that's why I was so excited when this idea "sprang" up...sorry, bad I know...I think it's contagious :)

I saw a pick-up truck the other day in a parking lot that had an old bedspring in the back (with some other junk)...if I wouldn't have been on vacation (and had more room), I would have waited until the owner came out and asked if they wanted to sell it - darn! :)

Good luck to you and your friend! Thanks for the peek at your space - it looks fabulous!
