Keeping it Together

I am an inadvertent collector. I regularly pick up random objects that catch my fancy, and whenever Andy and I moved into the house two years ago I realized as I was packing things, how many little collections I have. And it isn’t just things that I’ve bought, my family and friends know that I like certain things like quirky mugs or long scarves, and they give them to me for holidays and birthdays. I like the idea of being able to showcase and share my collections, instead of keeping them packed away, and I was delighted to find this post on integrating your collections into your home decor. Here are a couple of my favorite ideas.

Seek and Find

When I was little, one of the few good things about having to go to the doctor was getting to read the children’s magazines while sitting in the waiting room with my mom. ┬áMy favorite part of these magazines were the puzzles, not so much the “solve the letter jumbles” but the “find what doesn’t belong” pictures. I would eagerly flip though the books and find one that I knew I could finish before they’d call my name, having to leave the puzzle unfinished drove me nuts. In honor of the three day weekend I am posting a grown up and very expensive take on a childhood favorite. Browse through the pictures by artist Peter Lippmann below, and find the piece of Cartier jewelry hiding among the nature themed collections. Can you spot them all?
