Fluffing

I have an amazing Cutting Edge Stencils giveaway going on now!! Go HERE to enter!!!!!

I've been doing some fluffing and wanted to show you some of my new finds and how I used them to decorate my fantle (fake mantle).

 
I finally figured out how I wanted to use my printer block tray I got for Christmas. I think it's a great way to display some of my favorite things.
I know the star ruler and picture look randomly placed, but I needed something to cover up a screw that's right above the printer tray.

 I'm not sure why, but I have a growing obsession with caster wheels. I love the juxtaposition of the industrial feel of the casters with the elegance of an apothecary jar!



Brass hose nozzles have made their way to the top of my snatch-off-the-shelf-as-soon-as-I-spot-one list.

Ok, who can resist a tray filled with letters, numbers, skeleton keys, mini oil cans, and brass nozzles?? 

 Perfectly rusty bed spring candle holders!!! LOVE!!





This is just the start of my many growing collections. Thanks for letting me share!

I'm linking to the parties listed HERE and to:

  4. Fun collection and display. I'm a fan of wooden rulers and have a few of the nice old wooden rulers. Some have levels, etc. Simple tool with lots of charm.

  10. Your unique style is perfectly displayed this way. I have two printers drawers waiting for me to do something with them-ideas still rattling about in my head. Vintage gardening tools are very collectable now -you are ahead of that curve.

  14. Wow -your collections are almost the same as mine down to the fake mantels. I have three on various walls in the house. (I love the term "fantel"!) I don't collect hose nozzles, but I did collect lawn sprinklers until the collection became too big. I have pots of casters and sometimes will steal them off the furniture I am refinishing. Hope you come visit. I am your newest Linky Follower.

  24. Love your printer's tray display. So jealous. I found a cassette tape holder which I'm going to use for ribbon spools but now I think I need a printer's tray. Lovely found objects, some of my favorites too.
