Bottle Bush with plain backgroundIt’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind?! Yesterday, a friend brought me several pretty bottles (yellow, blue, & green). Recently I purchased a pretty pink vase. However, the gift, and purchases, weren’t the thing that prompted me to set up the Bottle Bush. (I “thought” I ordered a Bottle “Tree). See that extremely heavy metal garden umbrella base? It has been “out of sight” in my tarp shelter. This morning, I recognized that I could use that as a secure base for the Bottle Bush. I had planned to buy a large bag of Quikrete concrete (at Lowe’s) and prepare a heavy base (that would then reside in an attractive planter). Here’s another illustration where I’m using items on hand. (I turned a bed frame into a trellis, a chest-of-drawers into a trellis, etc., etc.)

Vinegar and olive oil containersAfterthought: You may have attractive bottles in your cupboard?! Here’s an example from my cupboard: Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Balsamic Vinegar (for my salads).
