Creating unique, one of a kind home decor one wine bottle at a time.

Growing up my best friend’s mom, Alison, was very into painting. She would take the label off bottles and paint beautiful flowers, then turn the bottle into a soap dispenser. Alison was my second mom; her and my mom would trade off soccer practice duty and made dinner before our school dances. I would sit with her while she painted and help take off labels, sometimes even help her drink some of the wine. Alison passed away my senior year of high school. Her loss was devastating. About a year later I started to paint. My first lamp had a peacock on it and the lights were shoved through the stem of the bottle. It was a healing process for me. My mom took great interest in the little lamp I created. My mom and I figured out how to string the lights through and for about two years we have been making and selling the bottle accent lamps. We have taken over what used to be the kitchen counter as our art space, and we collaborate over new designs and processes. My mom and I have a lot of fun painting and hanging out together. My mom is my best friend, and I see Alison in all of our work. I enjoy being able to share my hobby.

I hope my mom and I can add a little more light to your life!
