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.
A 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.
