bottle with wasp nest 5.5x7

A friend of mine asked me why I chose to put these two items together. Here's the story.
I grew up in the foothills on several acres. There was a barn on the property that was older than dirt. It was filled with fascinating bits of old junk. There were old tools, cans and animal traps. The types of things you'd expect to find in a barn. It was also lousy with wasps. My sister and I played in that barn all the time. I don't think there were any old bottles in there but it doesn't matter. I always associate old stuff that looks like it could be found in a barn with wasps.
