A Washington state man found a corky way to show his wife how much he loves her this Valentine's day.  He created a mosaic of her wine corks, all 2,862 of them.  It's an ode to his wife, Trisha, and it took him 36 hours to create.  The side-by-side corks are organized by shade to create definition of facial features and the illusion of depth.  You have to step back to really see Trisha's face take shape.  For the record, they did not drink all of that wine.  Nathan borrowed corks from their neighbors part way through the project.

If a wine cork portrait isn't your thing, how about a true gift of love and life?  A kidney!  Taesha Benson and Travis Spire-Sweet underwent surgery last week.  Travis has had kidney problems since birth and has been living with only 25-percent kidney function.  After spending a year on a donor list, his girlfriend turned out to be a perfect match.  Taesha says she felt blessed to have the ability to do this.  It's very appropriate because not only is February 14th Valentine's Day, it's also National Donor Day.
