Last May the husband/lover/best friend and I traveled to Jamaica and had a lovely week there at a fancy Sandals resort. In our suite, there on the vanity counter was a collection of Red Lane Spa bottles - shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, etc. contained in a little Red Lane purse type bag. I noticed that many of the ladies would use those bags to carry along with them their cameras, hankies, lipstick, etc. on the resort.
Now I don't bring home just any bathroom things - I only bring home the fancier ones from any nicer-than-usual hotels we stay in. So the Red Lane items came home with me. It's just not every day I go to Jamaica.
Every weekend I use them, reminding me of the sights and smells of the tropical paradise we stayed in. And now, sadly, the vacation is almost over, as you can see here:
And yes, I did have my very first real massage at the Red Lane Spa there in the Sandals resort of Negril, Jamaica. It. Was. Heavenly.

Here's another set I brought home with me last year from a brief stay in the Landoll's Mohican Castle in Ohio.
Our unique castle suite was a lovely place to stay for a night or two, and I'd highly recommend it if you are looking for a romantic kind of place to take your sweetheart. The bathrooms at this castle were ultra luxurious, even having heated Italian marble floors.
I have no excuse why I collect these little souvenirs. I wasn't raised in the depression era, and I have enough money to buy perfectly good shampoo and other necessities here at home. I just feel as if I am extending my vacation a tiny bit by bringing these little things home with me.
Are you one of those people? I'm sure there's a support group for this type of behavior.
I just hope it's located somewhere in Jamaica.
