 Wine Cellar

My ongoing hobby of wine collecting had outgrown my refrigerator, so I had to create a new home for my collection. Some lumber, an Avanti wine refrigerator, and some cool rope lights from Linens ‘n Things are all it took to convert the space under the stairs into a cool wine cellar.

 Italian Marble Fountain

While in Italy, we visited a quaint little hilltop town called San Gimignano. As a souvenir of our visit there, I bought a desktop fountain made of Italian marble and had it shipped home. The stone is simply beautiful, and the movement of the sphere on top of a cushion of water is mesmerizing.
