We’re not big collectors by nature but I will mention that I tend to buy pint glasses when I visit breweries, so the 30 or so glasses we have as a result might qualify as a collection, per se, but at least it’s practical. We will never run out of clean pint glasses. Ever.
The point of this post, however, is to highlight our growing Opus and Bill™ Christmas ornament collection. Eric had one (or two?) when we got together and we’ve bought the new ones every year since we’ve been married. We’ve also supplemented our collection by purchasing older (rarer) pieces on eBay. It’s too bad some of the really old ones are going for well over $100. That’s a tad much for a piece of plastic, IMO.
It’s just a little silliness that brings us joy. Our collection (so far!):

- Merry Kissmas from Opus (1995)
- Frozen Fun (1997)
- Head over Heels (1998)

- Christmas Smooches (2000)
- Poppin’ Up for Christmas (2001)
- Joy Riding with Opus n Bill (2002)
- Opus’ Snow Doom (2003)
- Opus Shakes Up the Holdays (2004)
- Opus Goes Nuts (2005)
- Rocket Penguin (2006)
