Painting wine glasses

These days my blogging is far and few between it seems.  DD is getting married on New Years eve so between that and work I am missing my art !  This past weekend my other daughter and I hosted her wedding shower.  Since we LOVE wine I thought it would be fun to give the shower a "wine " theme.
So, with my sisters' help I painted about 40 or so wine glasses...all different.  It seemed to be a big hit and the guests each brought them home.
I just used enamels from my lcs and I did bake them to set even tho you can just let them "cure" for about 25 days.  Every one was different and on some I put a set of wine charms.  This one I just used some wire and beads with a little miniature glued on the bottom for a garden theme.  The glass I painted for my daughter has a wedding dress painted on it and I made a set of charms with pearls and navy crystals (wedding colors).  It really came out gorgeous and ofcourse I dont have a pic to share yet!  BUT...GET A LOAD of this AWESOME CAKE!
The whole thing (besides the 2 small wine glasses on the side) is CAKE!  The plate even lit up! :)  Oh, did I mention it was delicious? lol 
I just HAVE to show this pic....this little sweetie is the "ring bearer" and he was just so stinkin cute I wanted to squeeze him! lol TFL

Wow you have been a busy gal. This is all wonderful. Love when you tell a child to smile and they put all they have into it. LOL

Love the decorated wine glass idea, so pretty. It must have been exhausting to paint so many, but obviously done with love.

What a great idea for a wedding shower! I can't believe you did 40 of them. That is a lot of work. That cake looks amazing.
