Bottles, part 1

Bottles, part one.

I have a lot of bottles.
They are all sentimental.
Paul has dug them out of various places for me over the years.
I love to use them in our home.
I love the way they reflect the light.
In any season, they just look right.
So, there'll be more bottle shots, I'm sure.
Someday, I'd like to make a spirit bottle tree.  

painting of this type of bottle tree by Regina Halushka made for 
the Bottle Tree Beer Company.

The first time I saw one was in the movie WinnDixie.  I've since learned they are a form of folk art in the American South, having originated from Africa.  I prefer the dangly ones like these.
We'll see...I'll be sure to post it if I make it happen.

    I'm flattered to see my painting on your site! Yea! I need to remember how to get into my old account to change my name from Cornwell to Halushka. I should have thought of that before moving out and leaving my computer with my ex. Oooops! Live and learn. I like the other photo you found of the bottles hanging too! I've not made my own bottle tree yet--but the garden is ready for it now! Thanks!
