I used to have a Honda 450 (don't laugh) I sold it before I moved to Pa from NJ. I still have my acoustic guitar, and I don't play it .

Smile My collections consist of ....

I am like PDSwife and Ladycook61. I love cookbooks and I also am making up my own binders and books and collect recipes from all over the place.

I also love perfume. I have just as many perfumes as recipes I think. Faves are Issey Miyake, Paris, Bvlgari and Tresor.

ladycook, the honda 450 revolutionized the business, back in the day. i had one, and a suzuki 850 in college.

i'm amazed that i'm still alive, however.


i used to collect match books, but with the world going "no smoking", it's getting harder and harder to find them. i have a large glass jar full of many of the places, mostly resturaunts, that i have travelled to.

I collect special edition Coca Cola bottles. For example, I have one 250ml unopened bottle commemorating the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana, an unopened bottle commemorating the last game at Maple Leaf Gardens and one commemorating 10 years of Coca Cola in Israel. I have about 30 unopened bottles (my preference) although I have some empties too. :)

I have lots of frogs around the house, too, pdswife.

And honey pots, the ones that look like beehives.

I also have lots of houseplants, lots of books, and lots of dog hair. (That last is probably not a collection I should be real proud of. And I do discard it once a week or so, but it keeps coming back.)
