I’ve wanted one for years. And my brother-in-law has been saving wine bottles for me for years.
On the day of my last chemo I took a picture of the dead cedar tree that Mickey had finally drug home from the lake. The perfect tree. (Kind of like Charley Brown’s tree)
Notice the worm holes in the bark where it has laid up on the shore. He searched for the perfect tree for months before finally bringing this one home! So the day of chemo it was laying in the yard and I thought I would take some pics of it. I was sooo proud!
Mickey came home for lunch and wished me good luck at the treatment.
When I pulled in the driveway I immediately saw it. The bottle tree was “planted” and “growing” some beautiful cobalt blue bottles! Mickey had done this on his lunch hour for me!!! Of course I couldn’t even see it for the tears. How sweet is that? He knew how much I wanted it.
It may seem silly to you guys, but this is, and will always be the greatest gift I have ever or will ever get!!!
Ever since, he has been searching Pier One and numerous other stores in search of the perfect cobalt blue bottle. Found a few at Hobby Lobby too. Knowing how much he HATES to shop makes it even better!
Over the summer I was at a garage sale and the people had a whole box of the old Milk of Magnesia bottles. They told me I could have all the bottles for a nickle a piece!!! I think I got a dozen or so. And there is a Kosher water that comes in the most beautiful bottles!
That was the beginning of December. This was Christmas day…
A Coopers hawk has found my tree and stayed for hours sunning himself on his beautiful new perch.
I Love it. Not so sure about the neighbors. Paula said, “it’s so you, Sheri” I’ll take that as a good thing!!!
Have a great week.
