According to a 9th century Congo legend, placing a glass bottle in a tree outside the home would capture any evil spirit lurking nearby. Occassionally, the entombed spirit could be heard howling from inside the bottle. In the morning, the sun's rays would destroy the spirit, thereby protecting the home.

Translation - Condensation (evil spirit) forms at night. The wind blows past the mouth of the bottle and the "spirit" moans, just like blowing over the mouth of a pop bottle. The sun heats the bottle and the condensation evaporates (evil spirit destroyed).
Legend is so much more fun than reality!

I have wrapped these two little green spirit bottles with solid copper enamel coated wire (to slow oxidation) and accented them with a mix of shimmering iridescent emerald and pale green glass marbles just to make sure that the bottles are irresistible to those evil spirits. They are each topped with a copper hook and ready to be hung in the tree of your choice.

Each finished piece measures approximately 13" long.

These bottles are ready to ship and will be mailed Priority Mail within one business day of payment.

All of my items are handmade in a non-smoking, pet friendly home.

Yes, I do combine orders whenever possible. If you want an exact estimate of a combined shipping cost, please give me your zip code and let me know which items. I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
All of the items that I have listed are ready to go so your purchase will ship within one business day (and, quite often, the same day).
Most certainly! Just let me know what color marble(s) and/or
stone(s) tickle your fancy and I'll try my best to meet your needs.
Just let me know in the "Note to seller" section and I'll add a note to your gift (I've become fairly proficient with Print Shop!). Gift wrapping can be a little trickier but if you'd like a little spiffier presentation, I'll give it my best shot.
the term "free shipping" is a misnomer; somebody has to pay for it. As I price my items to allow for a modest profit, I can't afford to absorb the shipping. I also don't want to raise my prices to cover shipping expenses which would give an artificial "free shipping". Plus, when offering free shipping, it negates the price reduction that normally comes with multiple purchases combined into one package. Rest assured that I only charge my customers what the USPS charges me and that I will refund overages. In my experience, this is the fairest and most transparent method for calculating shipping costs.
While etsy's messaging system makes it look as though I monitor "chat" 24/7, sadly, I do not. However, I will respond as quickly as possible...possibly right away or it may be a few hours, depending on where I am and what I'm doing.
