the oddest thing...

i promise i'll have crafty things to post later. i've got to get some swaps done today (before sherri kills me!) so i'll have more to add. but for now, i had to share this picture. i happened to have the camera with me the other day (because it was sunny and i wanted to look for cool pictures to take!) and i passed this house. i don't know what they did to this tree, or how they did it, but it is so cool!! the picture doesn't really do it justice. the whole tree is one giant icicle!!! i just now noticed the light at the bottom. i wonder if they light it up at night. i might have to take a drive when it gets dark and find out!!

3 peeps have to say:

are they trying to kill it? wouldn't the weight of the ice hurt the tree?

Cool to look at but not good for the tree. Fungus gets under the tree bark and stays instead of sloughing off. Weight of ice bad for the branches.

A guy used to hook hose up in the air and let it freeze into a tree shape and then add food color to it and shine light from inside. Cool and didn't harm anything.

How cool is that! Did you go back and see it at night? If it is lit up I need to know... hello photo op!
