My mom also does not have that collector gene. My dad did. So when my dad died, my mom spent about 7 or 8 years selling, giving away, and throwing away his various collections. Now she lives in a 1-bedroom apartment. That size is something she likes.
Anyhow, when she had more energy and mobility than she has now, she made this colored-water art - hanging these bottles from the top of her small porch.
I did get her art gene.
