Magnet Monday: No Whine for You

Cheesy Refrigerator Magnet for Monday, November 24, 2014
"Little Italy New York", wood wine shelf, plastic wine bottles, circa 2001

Thanksgiving is this week Thursday, and for many of us a big dinner also means wine. Depending on the gathering, perhaps lots of wine. Or lots of whine. I prefer the former. 

Purchased in the Little Italy neighborhood of NYC on one of many trips there to visit family. One of my favorite magnets for its sheer realisticness (is that a word?), it's also an enormous pain to keep clean. Then again, you could argue that dust adds to the realism. What wine cellar doesn't gather a little dust - am I right?

If you're observant, you'll notice that all the wine labels are French. Shhh - don't tell the Italians!

Magnet Monday features a selection from our semi-vast and ever growing collection of cheesy refrigerator magnets. Without doubt the perfect souvenir. Only slightly less cheesy than collecting snow globes but maybe a lot easier to smuggle in your bra. If need be. Which I hope it never is. Unless it's really worth it.
