Bottle

Here are a few bottles I have collected over the years.

photo 3 (2)

The first one is a commemorative bottle from an exhibit at the Mint Museum in Charlotte, NC in 1988.  The
exhibit was called  Ramesses II:  The Pharoah and his Time .  The items on display came for the Museum in Cairo.
I don't know, but I'd guess Pepsi was a sponsor?

The scond one is just a very old Diet Pepsi bottle that my son insisted on keeping because at that point, it was getting
difficult to find Diet Pepsi in glass bottles.

The third one is a Tyrolia Wine bottle. (seriously cheap wine from my youth and I have no idea if you can still buy it or not.)
I covered it in small pieces of paper from magazines and newspapers, all of which meant something to me at the time,
(I was in high school so heaven only knows what they meant and I hope I don't remember.). It's a bit of Decoupage. 

The fourth one is Mountain Dew.  The bottle has the name of a state college in our area on it, Marshall University.  My son eventually went there for college but way before that, Brad Dorff, aka Grimma Wormtougue, went there.  At the time I saved this bottle, there
must have been a good reason for doing so but now, I have no idea what that was.


Here are some closer shots of the bottles so you can read the labels if you want to do so.

And finally some very tiny Whiskey bottles that I purchased in Scotland just for fun.
They are each about a half inch or less
high so if I ever decide to drink them, probably not a good plan,
I'd have a very hard time getting drunk on them.

I like it though. But I also understand your reluctance to go back into your teenage mindset *g* There are things I half remember from my own teenage angsting that are best left to obscurity.

Half an inch? *laughs* The things people do to get into the Guinness Book of Records. They are kind of cute, though.
I like the image of Ramesses enjoying a cold Pepsi.
Neat collection! I live just a couple of hours from Marshall University. I didn't go there, but cool trivia that Brad Dourif did. :)
Neat. I like the tiny bottles of whisky - sort of dolls' house sized!
