I stole this idea from my friend Georgia....she has them all over her house. This is a delightful way to display all your little treasures. I used a large brandy snifter and filled it with smalls: a glass door knob, wooden cabinet wheels, skeleton keys, seashells, buttons, a marble egg, an alabaster bird, an antique pocket watch and many other items. I topped it off with an empty clock face. Guests can't keep their hands out of this! They're constantly pulling items out for a closer look. These can also be made with a theme in mind. Weddings: fabric, lace and ribbon from dress, dried flowers, photos, save the date card, invitations....all tucked away, but on display.
