Art is on my mind, especially unusual
collections that are displayed as art.

My tiny mind has been blown by this
organized display of quilting fabric:

Did you know that 60's Paint By Number
pieces are uber collectible now?

Oh, it's a thing.


Who says we have to outgrow our toys?

Books, books, books, books. . . you can never have enough books!

Create a reading nook out of a closet and
decorate the walls with shelves of books.


We all have a box or drawer of odds-and-ends.
Let's display 'em:


A framed collection of old plane and train tickets
is a visual memory of great vacations:

Fill in the chalk map with the states you've visited:


A vintage frame makes the perfect pin board
for shabby chic memorabilia:

A beautifully framed collection of heirloom hankies:

Potholders have been overlooked in linen collecting.

Vintage jewelry doesn't belong in a
jewelry box, it belongs on the wall:

Don't keep your treasures stored away in a drawer.  The owner
of this collection of antique sterling silver spoons proudly
displays them in their dining room.


Mirrors aren't just beautiful, they enlarge
and lighten the space around them.

That's one 'L of a collection!

Again, who gets to define art?  You!

  2. I have several collections hanging up.
    One of my favorite is all the train tickets you use to zoom through the turnstiles.
    So many beautiful and funny photos of Japan.
    Little works of art.

  3. I have a wall of mirrors in my living room with a few small pictures.
    I makes a great impact and it's a great way to display them.

  4. Really like some of these: the potholders, the cars, the vintage frame holding a collection of odds and ends.
