Warrenton Treasures Take 2





I must be drawn to collections because I seem to take pics of items in multiples! I love old bottles and jars and there were plenty to be seen at the flea markets. I guess that is a good thing. It says that they are still out there and quite affordable. (My kind of collection.) I love to do a grouping on a shelf or window sill. Since my kids have carried on the "collection gene" they have amassed a large quantity of rocks and shells. So, I decided to display them in old jars. That way they can still be viewed, but in an orderly fashion. It is such a nice way to remember the places where such treasures were found. I also use old salt shakers for the tiniest of rock or shell since nothing is too small to become a treasure!
How do you display your treasures?

Great pics! I love to keep things in jars too. I have my collection of baskets on top of my kitchen cabinets. I have shells from the beach in big tall vases in my bathroom and all my milk glass on on shelves near my windows in the kitchen. I love collecting...yes, I do. It's addictive!
