Displaying collections

I love collections! Many of the same things together is almost always beautiful! I'm always browsing this really awesome website that shows all kinds of collections, and I'm always pinning collections to my collections board on Pinterest . I'm sure that if I could, I would have many collections. But, like most of city-living people, I don't have the space for it (did I mention our new apartment is tiny?), and have to be mindful of what I keep.

Putting collections up on the walls is a smart way to display them- it decorates the house and doesn't take a lot of space. Below are a few of my current favorite pictures of collections up on walls-

  1. I love seeing what others collect and the many creative ways they display them. My favorite here are the bells - so clever! Definitely will repin that one. :)

  2. And I really like the one with the carpenter´s rulers - almost a piece of art. Collections are great!

    1. I agree, it looks like a piece of art! As I see how people display their collections, I want to collect what they collect too so I can display them in the same interesting ways. Hahaha!
