The Bottle Tree Takes Shape Slowly

The Butcher and I decided that the easiest way to work this whole bottle tree thing was going to be to make like it’s our parents’ old Christmas tree, which was composed of a wooden stick with slightly angled holes into which you stuck what looked like bottle cleaners but which were actually the fake branches.

So the Butcher drilled me some holes in my 2×2 today and we have some 1 ft rebar to stick in those holes tomorrow after we get our hole dug and our concrete poured in.

I may have to run to the liquor store and look for some unusual colored wine bottles so I can spend the day emptying them out to put on the tree.

And not at all because I need a drink or eight.

Ha.
