Dear Diary,

I just love these Bottle trees. You are really supposed to use a real tree and put bottles on it but these require less water. They are decorative but also practical. Having a bottle tree on your property keeps the haints away! These were made by a Mississippi Artist named Stephanie Dwyer (www.missmetaldesign.com) I think someone needs to make a bottle tree pin or charm or a little something you could wear around your neck if you ever visit Savannah, Georgia. Two of the three nights we stayed there I had fitfull dreams. The dead kept me tossing and turning all night. They kept begging me to help them! My poor baby sista was in the bed next to me tossing and turning too! Because my snoring and snorting were keeping her awake. If she wasn't so pretty she would have looked like the undead each morning from her lack of sleep, but, I digress.

I kept telling the dead that I could hardly help myself, they should look else where for a helper. It is so frustrating talking to the dead. They just don't listen.

Luckily, since I have been home, I've slept like a baby.

Hey Girl!!! This is Stephanie who makes the Bottle Trees and I'm really glad you like them!!! I left one for Paula Deen when I delivered to Savannah, but maybe they're too strange for her or something cause she hasn't said anything. Oh well! I'm spread'n the Bottle Tree Love all over the South, so maybe in the future our paths will cross. Take Care and thanks again! People like you keep me going. Cheers to You!!!!
