When you find an item that simply delights you, and then another in a similar vein, it follows that you might be drawn to collecting similar objects. One is an object, two is a pair, and at three, you have the beginnings of a collection. A collection can speak volumes about the collector and offer a starting point for conversation when entertaining.
Considering a collection? Try one of these notions.
- Stunning glassware in a unique style or color.
- Bits of nature: feathers, the remnants of a bird’s egg, pine cones, sea glass, shells.
- Antiques of a particular kind: medical tools, baking equipment, buttons, toys, or vintage camera equipment.
- Books: by author, topic, color or age.
Once your pair has made the transition to collection, find a way to display the group that capitalizes on its beauty. Play around with different arrangements until you find one (or more) that highlights their uniqueness and brings a smile to your face.
