Things in my house always look best in repeat. Many frames, many jars, many ties. A display of many similar items pulls things together and gives you big visual impact for your little objects. I love all the ceilings full of poufs or globes seen on pinterest. Have a collection of anything? Hang it from the ceiling. Instant art! I started with five objects. Several were thrifted and the big fish scale lamp I covered with dictionary pages over a year ago. This is our master bedroom. It is huge and empty. And I’ve come to realize that I’m going to need a lot more things to hang for this cluster to be filled out. But here is a start.

Thrifted to stash. Oh that stash! I struggle to keep it from growing too big to keep up with. Future projects, items that “just need a sanding and a coat of spray paint.” The tin measuring cup will join the others in my collection. I think I’m up to ten now, and I don’t know how they will be used in future. But they are cute! I’m thinking mobile or some sort of hanging installation. And the globe will be stenciled with something travel-y and globe-y. Painting is not my forte. Takes me hours of planning and graphing, but what an exciting end result it will be!
