This weekend, while packing up our flat, I realised that I own 6 corkscrews (one is already packed away!) 😅🍷🍾. .
I was also quite amazed by how completely different they all are... but it got me wondering, is 6 a reasonable amount for one person to own? Which style is the best / your favourite? Interested to know! 🙏🇫🇷😅😍
Ay la maire, ya un mes desde que vuelvo a entrenar mas motivao que nunca aunque este lesionado en ambos pies XD en especial ahora que saque mis primeros corck casi fatigado sjsjsjsjsjsjsj
The Baby POWERS, invented in 1889, was the world's first miniature bottle. Gold Label was quite expensive in the late 1800s and rather than create a cheaper product, we invented the Baby POWERS (shown here) so that nearly anyone could enjoy a tipple.
