Yard Artist and Free Spirit

Drove around the downtown area last week.
Don't you just love it when you find a house like this?
You just know an artist lives there...
A creative person for sure.
An extremely unique person.
This must bring her/him much joy.
It sure brought a smile to my face.
 Do you have yard decor, like this, near you?
None are near my house...none!
My neighborhood is very suburban beige, if you know what I mean.
Almost every house is one shade of beige or another.
Yards are neat and formal.
No free spirits in my neighborhood.
Boring...
Creativity
Most people avoid creative activities due to a fear of failure. The sage having no such fear thinks new thoughts, tries new actions and gains understanding through failures as well as successes. - Lao Fzu

I've seen the blue bottle trees before but none so creatively hung.

We're collecting bottles to build a bottle wall. Blue ones are hard to come by unless you like white wine which I don't.

Wow, that is spectacular! Yup, definitely someone with a unique and eccentric creative streak. And someone who isn't afraid to showcase that creativity. Definitely a free spirit.

Linda, It was so colorful and fun. I'm glad people do this because I get to enjoy.

Ellen, I'm a white wine person. Be sure to post pics of your bottle wall.

Martha, It was fun and yes...eccentric! I just wonder how long they've been working on this. Quite a while I'd think.

that's a lot of wine one must consume, mostly German I would say. I really enjoy what many like to use to personify their yards. I have a lot of solar lights and decorations.

Steve, You'll have to post your yard decor. Most of my yard stuff is in the backyard.

The blue color of the bottles is so striking. Creative minds make our life brighter :) Thanks for sharing!

turquoisemoon said...

Hindustanka, I love that rich cobalt blue. Don't you just wonder how it all got started? and if the person did it all at once or if it's taken them years???

Dee said...

Dear Turquoisemoon, those photographs of the "bottle yard" so reminded me of a chapter in the children's book "What Ever Happened to Winn-Dixie." That novel became a classic and has been made into a movie. If you haven't read the book, I encourage you to do so. There you will meet such creativity. Peace.

turquoisemoon said...

Dee, I saw the movie, but haven't read the book. Sounds like I'd better.

Introverted Art said...

that's absolutely adorable! I love that royal blue just reflecting sunshine.

Linda Myers said...

I found myself what the inside of that house looks like! Is the person a saver also?

turquoisemoon said...

Hi Ana, It was really cool...

Linda, I wondered that myself??? But, I sure love the outside of the house!

Dee said...

Dear Turquoisemoon, I'm glas you're considering reading "Whatever Happened to Winn Dixie." The book is truly charming. Peace.

this is my kind of place -- you should go knock on the door and find out the sure to be interesting person who lives there. i do know that hanging out bottles on trees is an old black ritual to keep the bad spirits away. but now mags are showing it as outdoor decor. -- barbara

Barbara, Around here it's just yard art. The entire yard was artsy and in an artsy neighborhood.
