Finally! The Bottle Tree

I just love my bottle tree.  Cobalt blue is probably my favorite color.  I've seen other bottle trees made out of rebar but this piece of mesquite was free.  The only thing I had to do was convince my neighbors to help me empty the bottles.

Didn't take much convincing.  I had to make a trip to 3 different Krogers to find all the bottles I needed.  Must be a popular brand of cheap wine.   Jimbo didn't see the humor in it when he pulled up from work one afternoon and got a look at my bottle tree.  I had beer cans and Dr. Pepper cans all over it.  He couldn't see my vision.  He honestly thought I was going to leave it that way.  I should have left it that way for a day or two.  I don't think our HOA will find the humor in it either.

I think it's beautiful.  It make me smile!

This was a project I did when my dad was here visiting from Arizona.  We had a lot of fun with it.  Love you Dad!
