Displaying Collections or Heirlooms

I'm not really a collector but I have "collected" some heirlooms and family memorabilia over the years.  Glass jars, vases or bowls are a great way to display collections, special heirlooms, and small items.  I used a couple of candle holders that I got "free" with a purchase years ago, and since I rarely use things for their original purpose, I filled them with special items from both of my Grandmas. I used one for thread, wooden spools and rickrack, in the other I put some game pieces and cards from a game that Grandma and I played together. Tammi uses a cake plate to display necklaces, earrings, vintage lipstick and pin. These could also be used to display and store the jewelry you use everyday also.
