Mr. B collects vintage bottles and he has them all over the house. You should have been in the house when we had a tiny earthquake, which is rare here in Southern Indiana. The whole house shook for a good 3 or 4 minutes and it sounded like a china store with all the glass shaking around. 

Lucky for us nothing was damaged. He has them on shelves, in bookcases and even built some jazzy shelves just for his favorite ones in the kitchen.

These are just a few of the collections we have around the house. My Vintage Coffee Cup Collection is also in our kitchen. We have a plate collection in several areas of the house.
