Last week we were vacationing in Arizona. Hubby, myself, and our daughter, Kylee took a trip up to the small towns of Carefree and Cave Creek.
We happened upon a store called the “Town Dump”. It’s claim to fame was, “The Most Unusual Store in Arizona”. It even states on their web page that it is a “Wild and Crazy” store.
Yup, that would be hubby and I posing at the Dump. Why is it when our kids ask us to do weird things like this we don’t even hesitate? Now if I had asked hubby to pose behind this sign you bet there would’ve been a bit of moaning and groaning going on. But no, both of us just hopped right on over and put on a smiley face.
As we walked through the dump I thought, unusual is right. One of the most unusual things they had was a taxidermy dancing circus bear, complete with a little tutu. Did I mention that his paws were missing. Weirdest thing I ever did see!
As we ventured out into the yard I had come to the conclusion that this store was just a little bit too unusual for my taste.
Then I spied a bottle tree.
I must admit, when I first saw bottle trees I wasn’t sure whether or not I liked them.
Here are a few small ones from the internet.
Lately, they have kind of grown on me.
The thing I liked about this one was the leaves. It won’t hold large bottles, but worked perfect for my collection of small bottles.
Can you tell it’s been raining here in UT?
What do you think about my new bottle tree? I sure hope it’s as happy here as it was at the “Town Dump”!
p.s. I have a give away going on right now. Check out my sidebar for details.
