I've had my share of collections, probably my favorite is tea cups. I have a lot of unique ones and come tea party time, it's always fun to pull out the sets!
As you guy know, I've also collected old plates at thrift stores and have set up this plate collection in my powder room. That post comes with a great tutorial how to hang your plates for free!

Don't give up on your collections! The more you can collect, the easier it is to make a statement.
Till the next inspiration hits!
