THE COLLECTOR

Daphne

Fun and Functional Souvenirs

with Daphne from Ft Lauderdale, FL

How long have you been collecting these items?
I have been collecting shot glasses for about 7 years.
Give us a little background on your collection
Mostly my shot glasses are from cities around the United States. Some are very colorful and have printing on them that represent well-known landmarks from that particular city.
How did you develop an interest in this particular collection?
I always thought that shot glasses were cute and just fun. So once I was visiting my grandmother in Orlando, I saw a nice colorful shot glass and decided to purchase one for a friend.
What approach did you take in starting this particular collection?
I bought a Florida shot glass for a friend and liked it so much, I ended up keeping it! Then whenever I traveled I started picking up new ones. I have even received them as gifts from friends since they know that I collect them.
 
What are your favorite specialty items in your collection?
My favorites are the tall slender shot glasses. I especially like the one from Planet Hollywood in Paris that a friend brought back for me. And I really like the Playboy one because the bunny is outlined in shiny crystals.
What other collections or hobbies do you have?
I'm starting a African and Asian mask collection. I will definitely display it once I get enough pieces together.
How do you choose what type of glass you want to add to your collection.
I usually choose the ones that appeal to my eyes. I like the ones that are simple, or frosted. But at the same time I do like some of the more colorful designs.
Do you plan to continue collecting these glasses and how do you keep the collection interesting.
One thing I would like to start collecting is all the U.S. cities' football team shot glasses. Since I love football I might as well combine the two! I was recently in Cleveland, Ohio and purchased a Cleveland Browns shot glass to get me started.

Thank you so much, ladies! This was the celebration that almost didn't happen, after my husband lost his job, and my mom passed away unexpectedly. It came down to honoring the "or worse" of our initial vows though... we scaled back, and went ahead with it anyway. Everyone enjoyed the evening immensely.
Homeschoolmama, I'm with the other ladies, you did a wonderful job putting together your vow renewal, it looked like a day full of fun and love. I think the memory table and cocoa bar were brilliant ideas! and of course, you all looked great!!!
HSM- your vow renewal was beautiful. Those photos in the snow are incredible and I love the way you decorated in a lovely rustic way! Very nice!
Homeschoolmama your vow renewal looked like it was very special. Beautiful. Wish you and your hubby many more wonderful years together!
