Tika & I Do Bottles

You might find this odd, but Tika and I take long walks and look for bottles.......... glass bottles. And (dangnabbit!!!) there are plenty of them to be found along our roads. We look for different shapes and colors but most of them are the colors you see above. And why do we do this? And what do we do with them? We make bottle sculptures! Bottle trees and bottles on stakes and anything else that creates a sun catcher. Newest idea is to stud a tall pine with bottles.... think that will work? My favorite is my Blue Bottle tree made from special wine bottles given to me by friends. (And it's been snowy here!) So now you know how Tika and I spent a sunny afternoon.

  1. I collect bottles too Tika. I have used bottles to edge a garden. The blue bottles give the occasional spark of color!! I love your tree. I might have to be a copy CAT.
