Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad!

Today is my Mom & Dad's Anniversary, so I thought I'd share the gift that I got them since I bought the same thing for myself!

Jon and I have been collecting empty wine bottles for years. I.... don't really know why. I guess we always thought we'd do some kind of project. I could slump them, but I'd have to bring them into the Art Center and see if they'd make room for me in the kiln. Hmmm, maybe dig a trench and use them as a colorful garden border? We like using found objects and recycled things in our garden. We have an old rusty gate in our rose garden, various other old pipes/spikets/faucets about, and an old chair with the seat cut out for a planter. So I was paging through a cheesy catalog the other day and saw this! A metal tree that holds 15 wine bottles! Perfect! It can also hold fruit to feed the wildlife. I told a friend about this and he ordered one for his sister's birthday - turns out she is a bottle collector too! If you'd like one for your garden, it's from Collections Etc.
My Dad's garden is gorgeous - I hope they like this. I look forward to finding a place for mine too!
