I love my collections!! My favorite things to hunt for are old antique keys, antique transferware and jadite dishes, antique or vintage pictures of roses and old photos of vintage people. I love to decorate my house with these fun finds! But I find in my little tiny cottage that the areas to display my treasures are few and far between, especially as my collections grow.
Collections don't have to be hidden away in cabinets, drawers or the attic. Get down your collections and let's put them to good use!
One of my favorite things to do with my plates is to hang them on the walls! A beautiful display of my transferware is a lovely addition to my decor. Dishes and plates don't have to be relegated to the kitchen or dining area only-display them above your mantle, or on a plate rail in the hall. Grouped together, any collection is more eye catching and artful!
Covering a kitchen back splash or office bulletin board with cork and pinning photos to it is also another clever way to showcase and alternate out your latest snapshots.
I think it is fun to alternate your collection displays. Gently pack away some of your treasures and pull a switcheroo on your family and friends by pulling out something you haven't shown off in a while. This freshens up your decor and allows those of us living in a smaller home a way to add to and showcase our growing collections!
