That art gene

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.

I think it's easier to live with less 'stuff'.

And, I thought those bottles were hummingbird feeders, at first. LOL.

When I first go married the decoration on my kitchen window sill was different coloured water in clear bottles. It is such an effective and easy thing to do.
Well done to your mum.
