Ordinary Things

I love it when I see ordinary things displayed in an artistic or unusual way. So many beautiful things are stowed away in drawers and just out of sight. The most ordinary things can be displayed to warm up and personalize your space.

This is a display in my cottage Corner at home. I've filled the basket with old keys, tassels and glass doorknobs. The pearls are cheepy ones, and the gloves were purchased at an ES. And of course books are one of the most ordinary things you can display.

This is a basket full of ordinary things. Let's see, old postcards, small picture frames, A roll of twine, and an old clock face, what else is in there??
How about filling a bowl or dish with Game pieces instead of candy or Potpourie.
Scrabble pieces, dominos, bingo numbers, jacks, dice, playing cards etc would all make nice displays just willy-nilly in a bowl.

I borrowed this idea from Tina at Cherry Hill Cottage. Now you can't get more ordinary than toilet Paper rolls
I have more of these display Budget ideas on my web page

So clear out those drawers, and see what you've got that you can display.
Visit the blogs on my side bar for more display ideas.

I rushed home and put my loose photo's in a big glass bowl that has a brass stand. DD wanted to know why....I informed her that RoboLady told me to!!! She looked a mite confused!!
