In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

I collect antique bottles, baskets, rocking horse tree ornaments and anything piggy -- love those piggies! And since it's my mom's main source of entertainment these days, I guess I also have to say I collect jigsaw puzzles! When she passes, I will be able to have a jigsaw puzzle garage sale!

Old bottles. I have them displayed above the kitchen cabinets. When the lights are on they really sparkle. Why? I just cleaned them all yesterday. This is something I do every 10 years. I call the dust collected on the patina. Don't think this is a lie. What do you think?
I have had many different collections over the years but now that I'm retired (and our retirement home is short on storage and display room) I've given away most of my collections, just keeping my very favorite items. The only collection I have left is a teapot collection - when I visit a thrift store I'm always on the lookout for a new teapot. There is a high shelf in our guest bedroom - that's where they reside.

Strangely enough I have a silver collection. I have lots of silver ware and jewelry.
