Enjoy the Small Things

For some reason I am drawn to small-sized objects. I have a printers tray hanging on my wall where I display interesting, tiny things.

When I find small things that are interesting I add them to the tray. To me this is what makes decorating a home fun...and personal. When you come to my house you will see all sorts of things out on shelves and on display - I put out those items and treasures that are a part of my journey - things that I find unque or that mean something to me and my life.

Here are some you would see if you came to visit...

A metal "Bob Pin" holder. I love how Bobby Pins were once sold in a metal case.

Miniature Bibles.
I wonder who decided what scriptures would make the cut and which ones wouldn't?

A very small clothespin.

A tiny doll with a crocheted dress. She is no bigger than the size of a quarter.
I wonder if someone hand-stitched her outfit?

I also have a pottery bowl that sits on a shelf that is filled with keys and other "what nots". I bet many of you have something similar in your home - either in a drawer or out on display.

Here is what is in there - a pink dart, a compass, old keys, a hole punch, a bottle cap, another clothespin and some dice.
My daughter Hannah loves to touch and play with this stuff.
Who needs toys when you can play make-believe with old keys and other junk?

I also like to collect things with our family initial.

What small things do you collect?
I challenge you to bring these things out and put them on display.
Enjoy those small momentos and trinkets that you've collected over the years.

Best Blogger Tips


  1. So great to read a blog that is about decorating how "YOU" want to rather than following along with every other blog.

    Your home is charming. Love the bobby pin container as well. Seems everything was made so much better way back when.

  2. LOVE the little scotty!!! Love all your cute little items!

  3. How did I miss this post? I LOVE tiny things. I have two printer shelves in my dining room. However, I still have stuff to unpack....yea, it's been six years since I moved in...but I do love minis!
