Winey Decor: Alphabet Photography Gives The Winey Family A Label!

Being the wine loving Winey Mom that I am, I'm all about labels. Sure, I read them for the varietal and the alcohol content and the region...but I am totally not above grabbing a bottle because the label is cute/funny/pretty or if it has a little doggie on it. I also save all my wine labels. I can't help it. I just have to do it. Someday I will make an amazing arty creation out of them all. But right now they're just in my wine binder.

You'd think that since I like labels so much, I'd have lots of other labels around the house. Specifically with the Winey Family name on them. But, um, well, no. The closest I have come until now is a slate plaque given to us by neighbors. It is for outdoor use. And we live in Cleveland. Thus it spends much time covered in snow. Or, if you look outside right now, oak leaves. So yes, there was a lack of family name labels in my house. Until a few weeks ago.

That's when I was chosen to write about Alphabet Photography's gorgeous creations. I think you've probably seen them around. They are words spelled out in everyday objects that resemble letters of the alphabet. You can use any word you want, but my first thought was, "Finally! A family label for our wall!" And it's easy. You just head to their website and type in the word you want. The site does the work for you. Don't love the picture on a certain letter? Just click on it and it gives you all the choices for that letter.

Our chosen letters
The Winey Family had lots of fun designing their picture. We decided to customize it a bit. One of our letters is a ferris wheel (we love them), one is a shelf of books (ditto the love) and our M is a picture of stained glass church windows (at the heart of our family and also representative of the billions of cathedrals the Winey Hubby has had us visit on any trip we have ever taken, anywhere).

Matted and signed
How cool is this thank you card?
The picture we received (adorably wrapped and with an Alphabet Photography thank you card!) is valued at $169.95 and has a 3” solid wood frame with a dark Chocolate finish accented with gold leaf. The frame is matted with a museum quality double mat with a V groove. At first we thought we'd put it up in the Winey Master Bedroom, since we just finished a big re-do there, but then we decided that our Winey family label needed to be seen by everyone, not just sleepy parents and the occasional invading doggie. So it went up in the family room above the fireplace. And you know what? It fit perfectly well in either room. It's  got that kind of a timeless elegance to it. It blends in anywhere.

Looks great!

So finally, a label for our family! And with the holidays fast approaching, what a great idea for a gift for the  newlyweds, the new home owners, the in-laws who are seriously the most difficult humans in the world to buy for. It doesn't have to be a name either. I typed in the Winey Son's college and presto: instant graduation gift.
Grab a glass of something and start designing your masterpiece! Cheers!
