Did you say 90 percent you dug? huuuum. I bet your wife likes them bottles new home. I would, but not in a basement I like to look at them too, all the pretty color. Your collection looks like another I had been around. Nice why to live with collections and so it should be[:D]

ajohn, don't think the bottles have much to do with why you are not married

Digs,
if i had that many bottles i have one whole room just for all of them and then special ones scattered around the house like theme bottles for certain rooms. LOVE THEM! [;)]

Your's look great, but I feel sad for bottles in basements and boxes. Will your basement be a family room where you can enjoy them at least?

I think basements are just fine for bottles & artifacts. You can go down there and be surrounded by what you enjoy and what has brought you a great many wonderful memories. And hopfully you can shut the door and keep children out until they are old enough to appreciate what you have. They are like a tresure trove. Renee`

welcome dugout,
a treasure trove, i like that. [;)]
i like your reasoning behind the basement.
i just like to see my bottles.
i let kids touch my bottles.
start them early and they'll learn to
handle with care.
i do enjoy seeing how others display
their bottles.

but i do like that name treasure trove.

digs,
i'll have to look for you new postings.
as always they brighten up my life
to see you and your finds.

i did love all your bottles. you must
feel proud having pulled them out of the
ground. brought back memories as many i
remembered when you posted the digs.
take care my friend. lucky you [8D]
