Good Book: Collector's Style by BH&G

I picked up this Better Homes & Gardens decor book at a thrift store for 25 cents.
It's a pretty sweet score and I occasionally find myself flipping back to it for inspiration. I don't have one major thing I collect but my apartment is teenie so It's easy to feel overwhelmed. Here are a few shots of people using their collected items in decor:vintage letter press cabinet used to display mini relicsA built-in treasure shelf showcasing an antique sewing machine collectionvintage french wooden toys incorporated in a bathroom (a bit too rustic for me)
German wood farm toys displayed over a guest bed
A Jadeite dishware collection proudly over staked on a shelf. ( I wish my measly collection had this many)
