No one should ever make you get rid of things you love even in the name of organization. But, if you want to keep your collections because you love them, then you need to respect them and follow a few collection rules.
- Put your collection where you can love and enjoy it. Use floating shelves, a china cabinet (which can hold all kinds of pretty things besides china), wall racks, display cabinets and more.
- Don’t box the things you love for someday and shove them away. If you do, then you don’t really care enough to keep them.
- Group like items together. If you like ceramic frogs, your collection is much more interesting and stunning grouped together than scattered all over the house. One is a collection and the other is clutter.
Until next time …
