My Bottle Tree


When I discovered that this tree was dead,I mentioned to my husband that I wanted to make it a bottle tree. He said, "what do you mean, a bottle tree"? I explained that you hang empty bottles in the tree, and I showed him a picture in a magazine. He said in his most manly voice "YOU ARE NOT PUTTING BOTTLES IN THE TREE"! Well, I guess you see how that turned out.
In case you are wondering why anybody would ever start putting bottles in trees...
it seems that it all started with people believing they could capture evil spirits and "haints" in the bottles. So there you have it...they look pretty,make use of a dead tree, recycling bottles and from time to time I might catch a "haint" before it can even get up my driveway.
