Yet another water feature added to the house.
|Look at the mist rising in the center!
I strongly identify with Gollum from The Hobbit. I, too, have precious things. This computer is, in fact, officially named My Precious. The difference between Gollum and me is that I have many precious things while Gollum was satisfied with one. Yes, I should be ashamed. No, I am not. Techie toys, fabric, sewing machines, and water features--I love them all. Right now, I'm on a misting water fountain kick. I love the sound of the water trickling in the background and the mist rising and floating away.
the obsession began. That one even has lights that change colors--or not.
The one problem with using the large vase is that it is too deep to see the mist which dissipates rather quickly. You need a fairly shallow container for the water if you want to see that mist. To get around that issue, I bought a giant cocktail glass and plunked it in the center.
You can see the upper edge of the glass piece in the photos above. Dissipating mist dilemma solved, and I still get to use my beautiful vase. Between the pink pine cones and this, I've had my crafty fix for the month. One more project off the list.
