My dad was known to everyone as Poppy. He was the greatest man in the whole world. He raised me after my mom died, I was 12. When I got my first apartment in the late 60's he always said he felt like he was going to get his fortune told when he visited. Yes, I had quite the eclectic place. Beads, candles, Lanterns and lots of Goodwill furniture. I loved it!!! Poppy passed in 1994 but he is in my heart always.

This wire rack used to hold votives but not any more. I will collect the rest of the six pack...lol and continue hanging them. Does anyone have an opinion if it matters if I hang it upright? I have an actual bottle tree and all the bottles hang upside down to catch the bad spirits. I want to place flowers in each bottle to make it a shrine. I don't think St Frances minds the beer bottles:-) I hope your day is lovely.
Who would think a beer bottle could be so pretty. Well, my husband did not, he threw the bottle away. Silly man................I drilled a hole in the bottom, wrapped it with wire and now I will add some crystals to it and hang it outside. Beautiful eye candy!!

For any of you that love crosses like I do, here is part of my collection. I love religious artifacts. I have a collection of St Francis in my home also. He is the patron saint of animals and ecology. When given the chance I like to visit old churches and missions.
I will post more pictures....please accept my attempt at the photography.
My daughter bought me this on a little train trip to San Juan Capistrano. It really is quite nice without the flash glare. I'm trying:-)

She is keeping watch over the flowers in my garden. She must take naps though because something finds it 's way in and eats them while she is sleeping. As I speak, my wire haired fox terrier, Maggie, is digging her way to what seams the bottom of the earth to get a gopher.
I hope everyone enjoys a beautiful Valentine's Day. Hearts go out to all of you:-)
