I'm a former elementary school teacher with a deep appreciation for wine. Years ago I started creating candles out of the interesting bottles as gifts and for decoration. I wanted to preserve the creativity of the labels while also reusing the glass, rather than simply recycling the bottles.


After 5 years of teaching, I left the classroom to begin a new adventure. With some help from my parents who also supply me with (empty) bottles, and my wonderful husband who has been so loving, patient, and supportive, I am excited to be selling my candles.


"Wine time" was something my mom and neighbor began as a way of decompressing from a long day. This name reminds me of the friendship, care, and, of course, wine, that is enjoyed among friends and family.
