creative collections - part II

In the course of a month, papers, and little pebbles of life can accumulate. I have always admired those that can arrange a collage out of the bits of life in one central station. The art of saving snippets, photos, tickets, bills has a casual yet elegant aura to it. Inside of a bookshelf, I spotted this over at New York Social Diary (Benjamin Bradley) and thought this might inspire you too.

You know what, I love having tear sheets from magazines, lovely ideas for "something" in the future. I keep folders for each catagory on my desk where they're always available. Looking at them makes me happy. Thank you for the photo, it might become my cover. XX's Marsha

I have so many of these things, and every time I do a major clean, I put them in a box...I need a super large bulletin board and the space for it, because I treasure these things!

Best,
Michelle

I recognize that from the feature on Benjamin Bradley's home. I loved it too! What a perfect space. It is totally intriguing to see what other people find inspiring and how they put it all together! xx

We all need a little nook for special mementos and inspiration, photographs. I do need to file my tear sheets though!

This reminds me of my own habits :) I hold on to odds and ends and then forget about them for a while until I do a major clean. It's fun to discover little treasures that you've nearly forgotten about.

I love this. Used to do this type of thing when I was younger...might need to get back to it again.

Mine are all shoved in drawers and in books are markers.

There's a lot going on there. I love that! I wish I had a little spot like that for mine... it's leaning against my drawing table...
