More Space, More Things?



My husband and I live in a very small urban space. Very small. So I squelch my inner collector in the hopes that it will maintain my sanity and a sense of order in the apartment. Two things I have a real weakness for, though, are vintage kitchenware (especially pretty plates) and old ephemera like photobooth pictures and postcards. Right now I keep a collection of Victorian postcards and old photobooth snapshots in an album.

I was so inspired to see the way Lisa Congdon arranges her collections of similar items (via Poppytalk). Maybe someday?

Love the plate arrangement!
Now that I know what to do with them, I'm giving myself permission to buy all the one-of-a-kind plates I find at garage sales! Thanks :)
