What is it about miniature anything that seems to charm us to no end? I love little things and just love looking at them. The thing is that if you have a lot of little things sitting about on top of your furniture, they can look messy and cluttered. So today we are talking about how to display small things.
This cabinet is quite old and the things inside are also mostly old. We inherited so many things from my in-laws and I tried to keep as many things as I could. Many of the things in this box are from them, the little doll dresser, and the old man reading the book.
The vintage hand mold I found somewhere. I also happen to have a tiara. Everyone needs a tiara.
The kangaroo salt and pepper shakers were from a trip they took to Australia in the 70’s. The girl in the frame is my mother-in-law when she was a little girl.
I just love all of these little things, and I really enjoy being able to keep all of these memories together not hidden in a box, but displayed where we can enjoy them every day. I forgot to mention the old cabinet is one I found at the thrift store.

That’s a great idea! I have a lot of little things that our family has given us and they’re tucked away in drawers and boxes. I like your idea much better!
Have a great day, Anita!

How charming ,it works so well.
I can remember my great grandfather – he told me stories and carved animals out of scraps of wood. Also on his porch he had 5 “turtle dogs” to bring good luck. The dogs are vertebra from a turtle – how old I don’t know. I have had them in a box since he passed away. Last year I took them to my frame shop. They did a wonderful job making them look like a museum relic. Now thet are in my foyer to bring good luck to all that enter.

I’ve seen those vintage hands in shops and loved them but never knew how best to display one. I love the tiara and the satin heart sachet. So feminine!
