I love the bottle tree art. I had one in my backyard for years. Some people "got it" and others just looked confused. Oh well, I loved it. Finally took it down cause I got tired of explaining it and still getting a confused look.

I would love to have a bottle tree--with as many pretty bottles as this one!
Bottle trees are supposedly an old African American tradition. Usually seen outside, this one is in an piazza of some sort, but the colors of the bottles come through so well with the natural light from behind. A nice touch of whimsy.
bottle tree - For thousands of years, superstition has held that bottles can trap bad spirits at night, which are then destroyed in the next day's sunlight - legends of "bottle "imps" and genies in lamps originated in Arabia over three thousand years ago, and have been handed down through sub-Saharan Africa, up to Europe, and finally to North America.
