Seasonal Small Stuff

What is the size and shape of your memento collections? I am nostalgic. I keep lots of little things, I love them. Bits and bobs I've picked up from places I've lived, places I've visited, trinkets that commemorate place, artifacts that hold moments in time, random items of delight! I have more of these things than I can count; more than we can enjoy at one time. Aside from the fact I don't want to dust a hundred little things weekly, I also like for each precious thing to have its moment. Its opportunity in the spotlight, so I can linger for a bit in the memory or feeling it evokes. To that end, I store and rotate the display of these items, moving them in and out of focus throughout the year.


MEMENTO STORAGE

There are many storage solutions, but for me, for the small stuff, I have found the easiest way to store my trinkets is in boxes designed for storing Christmas tree ornaments. This feels like a natural best storage fit, as they are a storage solution designed for the ultimate collection of beloved seasonal trinkets.


MEMENTO DISPLAY

Many items stand well alone, but I love the playfulness of a collection of items. Clustered together on a shelf, on a tray or within a cloche. There is something magical and intimate about a collection of items as a curio, contained within glass.
