Displaying your Treasures

What's the tricky part of owning a collection? Displaying it properly!  Most of us have a group of treasures that have meaning to us or we just think they are pretty and want to display them.  But how??

Let's take a look at few are some great ideas on how to show them off with charm and style.

A 'collection' of objects are much more interesting when they are grouped together. 

This grouping of crosses would have been fine on their own, but look how much more interesting they are when hugged by a frame.  I used 'words' and candle sconces to add even more interest.

How fun is this?  This works because it helps the eye to focus on one thing at a time.

Even grouping 3 to 5 of your favorite things give an impact to your space.

Displaying this colleciton of colored glass on a window sill, allows the light to stream through the window, accentuating their bright colors.

Cork stoppered bottles from Cost Plus are filled with sand, shells and small stones, gathered from vacation beaches. The bottles invite touching and shaking, surefire conversation starters.

This is so cute!  But you don't have to 'stick' to pin cushions!  Anything that fits in a glass jar would work.  How 'bout match books from different places your visited?  The possibilities are endless.

Remember, grouping your collectibles together give them much more impact and interest.  Now, go display your treasures!
