Bottles are just one of many things
I collect. Not only am I a collector of bottles of which I have several hundred,
but also fast food toys as well. Of course I don't eat the fast food, but that's
another story all together. I am also an artist, and an elementary art teacher.
My collections have taken over my home, but I do enjoy them, always bringing home
another treasure to admire!!!
"I Even Collect napkins!!!"
This thing about collecting
paper napkins true! I started collecting a few of
the nicer looking ones in school when we had a breakfast or a luncheon. I pinned
them to a bulletin bd. Eventually, I added more, and then more! The kids in my art
class started helping too!!! They had birthday parties and other celebrations and
brought them in for the collection!! So now I have napkins ranging from birthdays
and Halloween to Pokemon!! One whole wall in my classroom is filled with them, and
the kids love looking at them...I call it Napkin Art!!

been collecting since I was a teen so this problem I have of bringing things
home has been happening for a while. I often frequent garage sales looking for
other collectibles to add to the collection. I have one whole room in my house
devoted just to the bottles and related collectibles.
When I look back on it now, I realize I have always had this thing about
collecting. I found an old picture recently that
shows my bedroom when I was living home with mom. How did I ever get all
that stuff in one room???
I get a great deal of satisfaction from my collections.
I really don't care about their dollar value. I am more interested in
the objects and the history surrounding them.
I started collecting fast food toys a few years ago now and acquire most
in the secondary market, as I really don't feel like eating all those Happy
meals. Surprisingly, I have picked up many still in the original plastic bags.
It seems that many kids are willing to share their toys with me after they are
through playing with them as well!!!
Flowers from my garden!
I am an avid gardener. I plant vegetables and flowers, both annuals and perennials.

"I have always
enjoyed the arts,
and knew at a young age I would do something relating to them.
Teaching art is a natural for me."
