Collections....Displaying Vintage Brooches....

Today, I'm bringing to you a unique way to display vintage brooches! 

I have a small collection of them that I hold dear to my heart. It hangs over the top of my dresser mirror in my bedroom.  They aren't passed down family heirlooms or anything....I've picked them up at garage sales and thrift stores over the years, with the exception of the red lady bug one, it was a gift from my best friend back when we we teenagers....
 I didn't grow up  at a time when wearing brooches was very popular or trendy, but I guess memories are mostly what drew me to collecting them....
 I remember a beautiful collection that my grandmother had that belonged to her mother, and as a little girl, I remember grandmother opening up the velvet lined two tiered box and showing me all of the sparkly brooches and other pretties inside,.....

 As I look at my small collection that's displayed on my hanging heart pillow, it takes me back to precious memories of that very special lady in my life....my Grandmother....

It's funny how things can take you back to another place in time.....
Have you found any unique ways to display any of your collections? I'd love to hear about it!

Thanks for stopping by today....
I hope you have a great day!

Linking up with this inspiring place this week...
