What to do with collections

Many of you have a bit of a “collecting ” in us… but what do you do with it?  Do you buy it and put it away or do you display it to share with your friends?

I would use the most favorite pieces of your special interest collection and put them as a group in a focal point of your home.  What I would not do is put a little here and a little there all over.  You want your display to look well thought out and not jumbled up.

In order to do this,  I would lay them out on the floor if you are choosing to hang on the walls and play with the grouping before hanging them. If you are just using a surface to display or a cabinet, of course you can also move those items much easier to get it just right so everything is well balanced and shown perfectly.

Here are a few photos to give you some ideas of pretty displays of collections.  If you have any questions please email sandra@sandrabunndesigns.com.
