Unique Display Idea, Cat Eye Glasses and Antique Letters

I bought several ancient, (as in late 1800's) blue shutters from an antique shop quite some time ago for 5 bucks a piece...they still have the original hardware on them and they are all this amazing pale blue color. I didn't have to do a thing to them but clean them up a little. This one, I use for a display piece in my living room...on which, I hang a vintage lingerie/pants hanger with amazing red clips that really add a little punch to the display.....and on said lingerie/pants hanger I have clipped a beloved antique green satin purse in which I display some of our favorite antique letters, postcards, and a pair of our favorite vintage cat eye glasses. More glasses from our collection are just inserted in the slats.

This is by far, my most favorite display. I hope it inspires you to be more playful in your home too.
Let me know what you're favorites are and maybe I can do a post about it? I'd love to see!


  1. How fun! From the sound of it (and your pictures!), I believe your home should be showcased in a magazine! :) I only wish I was half as creative as you, Jennifer. One of the things I have fun with in my home is an antique cake plate. Nestled under the dome at this time of year is our collection of vintage pine cone elves. At other times of the year, we have old silverware, colored eggs, etc. depending on the season.

  2. I have a sled from my childhood that I should use for display. I'll have to see what I can do! Thanks! :-)
