Has there been a thread where people post pictures of their Absinthiana?

Just a pleasant way to spend an evening.
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

That's what you get when you collect for 10 years. The antiques are the best to drink out of. The weight and feel hasn't been matched by the repros yet.

Hectma,

I put the fountain together, but have to admit that I got the idea from a post I read on one of the boards. It's a mouthwash dispenser from Lowe's Hardware mounted on top of the matching toothbrush holder with double-sided foam tape. Very simple, built in about 5 minutes and works very well. About $35 This board gets the credit for a newbie having a good looking selection of bottles.

Papa H,

Good lord, that must've held a lot of toothpaste before you re-purposed it.

Sand,

I don't know whether to be in awe of the muscle tone or the patriotic (albeit UK?) bikini bottom. Or is there more 'splaining to do?
