I usually have a bit of bunting hanging from our balcony - it seems just the place!But when I took down my Dottie Angel-style winter bunting, I felt like doing something different. The idea grew slowly...... how about displaying my collection (or bits of it) on an indoor washing line?I'd been wondering for ages how to display the embroidered tea-cosies!I added more bits - this is the saucy corner, with a hand-painted silk stocking on the left, and what Son 1 and his dad both erroneously thought was a bra (it's a bonnet, guys!) in the middle...Various bits of ribbon, crochet, buttons and a lace glove...
And some doileys that would never, never sew into anything, but which can finally go on display.Bits and bobs of lace and a china doll's dress. And finally the inevitable vintage hexie, which reminds me of Rubyred's much more coherent garland - I didn't see her post before I got the idea, honest!All in all, I'm really pleased to have found a fun way to display one or two things I've never had out before. And I'm ready to be more adventurous with other bits of my collection too - any suggestions for display?
