The things that make me happy are pretty simple. They are the things that normally make me grin so I pull out my phone and snap a picture. You want to see the pics I took on my phone this week?
I removed this rolling wire trash bin thing from inside that really didn’t help it just got in the way. I used baskets that I already had in the house and now I can see everything we have!
I covered a bottle of wine in chocolate for my (1st) mother in law. I’ll be honest when I was done with the dark chocolate it didn’t look so hot, but after I added the white it was great and tasted amazing! It was a hit. Ok I’ve had a few questions about this so here is the short version.
I Basically I criss- crossed ribbon under the bottle and tied it around the neck. Then I wrapped it in waxed paper and taped it on. Next I used a double boiler to melt chocolate chips with a little water to make it more spreadable. Used a spatula to smear it on. Let it cool and harden. Melted white chips and water in a pyrex measuring cup and then drizzled it all over! Pretty simple but it takes a little time.
I hope thats clear if not I will be making on next weekend so come back on the 7th for the tutorial with pictures. Maybe even a video.
Other than the fact that Cooper doesn’t always listen to me grrr, he is pretty darn cute. We gave a friend a ride to the body shop last night to get their car back. The window was up while driving but when we were parked he was adorable.

I just love your Cooper. He is so much like mine….except….mine’s nose turns pink in the winter. Its so strange 🙂
What a cute CUTE puppy! He would most certainly make me happy, too.
Is Cooper a labradoodle? He looks a lot like my Bentley. 🙂
what do you do with the bottle? How do you get the chocolate off the bottle?
Organization makes me happy! 🙂
Coper is so cute! I have been on a cleaning frenzy lately too. It feels so good to make some changes and reduce clutter in the process.
Do you pry the chocolate off the bottle to eat it? I’ve never heard of anything like that before.
Oh, Cooper made me giggle….
Love the picture of your doggy and the chocolate covered bottle is an awesome idea!
now that’s a very organized under the sink cupboard. I am even more ashamed of mine now. As if that were possible…. starting my to-do list now 😉
I love organized cupboards!! 😀
I’ve never heard of covering wine bottles with chocolate!! Do you pop it off and eat it, then? Sounds like it would *totally* be up my mom’s alley! :giggle:
The simple things are the best! I have never heard of a wine bottle covered in chocolate, although it sounds right up my alley.
Wow, can you come over and help me organize my sink cupboards too? We just throw things into bins underneath the sink and it drives me crazy when I actually have to go and search for something. I know I should organize it better but it’s a lot harder when I have a husband you just tosses things in. *sigh*
That chocolate covered wine bottle is an interesting idea. I’ve never even heard of such a thing. I’m curious about it now 🙂
And cooper is such a cutie!
how in the world did you ever think to dip a wine bottle in chocolate? that is crazy fun.
stopping by from you-capture.
Super-organized cleaning spaces make me happy, too. You’ve inspired me to go clean a closet. Or maybe I’ll start with a drawer. 🙂
Cooper is so cute!
