Creative Collections

Have you started some sort of collection without even realising it? My love of vintage jewellery has meant that over the years, I've collected a variety of broaches from the 1950's and 60's and now I have enough pieces to call it a collection. I've chanced upon these treasures in op shops, flea markets and antique shops. 


I also have a small collection of shoe clips, although I don't wear them. They hark back to a bygone era but I still think they're gorgeous. 


Maybe you have a collection of books, china, shoes or scarves? Displaying a collection can act as a decorative feature in your home. Who doesn't stop and look at photos when they're grouped together on a wall? Even if you don't see yourself as a 'collector' it's amazing how a group of similar objects can become a talking point. A friend has amassed a gorgeous collection of glass and crystal decanters and has them displayed on a silver tray. They look fabulous.

So, rather than leave your personal treasures languishing in a cupboard or draw, get creative and find a place where your collection can be admired.

Enjoy your creative life, Jules
