How To Put Collections On Display

There are all sorts of collections. It can be anything that is close to your heart. Like this vintage radio display above.

A gathering of favorite things placed under glass.

I have some vintage rolling pins myself.  

I love how these post cards are so creatively displayed.

A prized milk glass collection.

Pyrex, etc.

A vintage kitchen collection so cleverly displayed.

I love how these old hankies are gathered in this jar.

A double collection: old bottles with feathers.

Sea shells collected while at the beach.

Do you have a prized collection in your home? How do you display yours?


  1. What beautiful collections. Love the rolling pins, and also he white milk glass items.
    I have a small collection of milk glass myself.. And I have a curio cabinet full of Christmas
    music boxes.

  2. When collections are displayed together well...they become art. Love all of these wonderful collections. And yes, I might have a collection...or two.

  3. My favorite is the vintage radio collection..I collect anything vintage that I see and can't live

  4. I collect too many things to count. But one of my favorites is antique baby bottles.

  5. What a great idea for the seashells and sand. I love the beach and have a glass bowl full of sea shells myself. And I also liked the picture of the Pyrex bowl collection. Pretty fabulous collection.

    1. My sister in law has a collection of sand from every vacation... whether it's the beach, the desert or the mountains. She just takes a small glass jar with her and fills it about 1/2 way. Each one is labeled.

  6. I collect too much stuff! I like silver, and most of those pieces are in a glass cabinet. I like seashells, and some summers I pub them in bowls or baskets around the house. I have books everywhere, and I am in dire need of some more shelves. Or just rid of some books, which is hard for me.

  7. I love the blue bottles with the feathers in it. I also like the one from MMS using the cloche. I don't have many collections (unless you consider pillows a collection - Ha!). I do have a lot of white serving dishes. So, maybe that would count. I have them displayed in my kitchen and dining room.

  8. I love these!! That colored glass collecting is amazing...and the feathers! Love!!

  9. What fun display ideas.

    I have a glass jar that I have been trying to decide how to use and now I know I am going to put a few things inside it.

    thanks for the inspiration.

  10. I collected old skeleton keys, antique clock keys, skate keys, safe keys, etc... all now in their new home. I filled an antique printer's wooden tray and it is quite the conversation piece.


I always enjoy reading your comments and having you join the conversation here at Cozy Little House. It is like having a gathering of friends sitting in my cozy apartment. Enjoying coffee and dessert, chatting and having a good time.

Please be kind with your comments. We all need kindness in this world. That's not to say you can't state your opinion! Everyone should be able to state their own opinion in a kind and thoughtful manner.
