AMASS IT & SHOW IT: COLLECTIONS

TOO MANY ITEMS IN YOUR COLLECTION TO FLAUNT THEM ALL AT ONCE; ROTATE PIECES TO KEEP YOUR LOOK INNOVATIVE


WHAT BETTER WAYS TO SHOW YOUR GROWING COLLECTION THAN TO HANG IT ON THE WALL.



GAME BOARDS DISPLAYED ON ONE WALL, THE ENTIRE COLLECTION FROM TOP TO BOTTOM

WHEN DISPLAYING A SHELL COLLECTION, DON’T OVERDUE BUT A VINTAGE TUREEN FILLED TO THE BRIM WITH INTERESTING SHELLS YOU’VE FOUND ON YOUR TRAVELS WILL EVOKE MEMORIES OF YOUR TRIP FOR MANY MONTHS AFTERWARDS. GLUE SHELLS ON A MIRROR,COVER WOOD BOXES LIKE THE WIVES OF SEA CAPTAINS DID LONG AGO,PROP STARFISH IN A WINDOW,PUT SOME IN A BATHROOM LEDGE OR WINDOW, MAKE CURTAIN TIE BACKS. THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS


CANDLE STICKS, TRAYS, CAKEPLATES & CHARGERS ARE GREAT TO DISPLAY AND ALSO USE IN VARIOUS ROOMS IN THE HOUSE. A CAKE PLATE TO HOLD SOAPS OR WASH CLOTHS IN THE BATH, WILL KICK IT UP A NOTCH.

HANG A QUILT OR COVERLET FOR INSTANT COLOR
OLD BOTTLES DISPLAYED ON SHELVES OR IN WINDOWS IF THEY’RE COLORED, THE LIGHT WILL SHINE THROUGH THEM & BRIGHTEN YOUR ROOM. I MAKE FRENCH BOTTLES OUT OF VINTAGE BOTTLES WITH A COPIED FRENCH POSTCARD, VINTAGE CHARMS & KEYS.
