What do you do with all the corks you lovingly don't throw away? Our mother used to save them and make trivets out of them. Others we've known just have saved them. However, if you ARE saving them, finding a nice place to put them can be a challenge. They can take up space and become UGLY, forcing you to end up simply throwing them out...

This solution is from Sara Kate's mother's house in Los Angeles and while it may look more suited to LA, you can do it anywhere. She has a large, attractive Glass Horchata Jar behind her sink, which she throws her corks into whenever she's done. This one has been filling slowly over time, and it's super easy to know where to put the corks, since it's in such a prominent spot in the kitchen.

The corks seen through the ripples of glass give the whole thing a festive appearance and make it easy to know when it's time to start thinking about next steps....
