There Are No Rules
When it comes to display, there are no rights or wrongs. Don't be afraid to collect items that wouldn't normally be considered a classical interesting object for your home. I'm obsessed with painting, and it's almost always in shades of cream, black and grey. Once my brushes have started to see better days, I simply set them aside until I have enough for a simple little display in a recovered or new jar. I love the patina of vintage mercury glass, but any glass or ceramic container will do!
