Ask Design Mom Question:
I have a collection of crocheted doilies and some antique baby shoes I’ve inherited. Do you have any ideas for displaying heirlooms? Thanks in advance. — Monica

Design Mom Answer:
Great question, Monica. And how fun that you’ve inherited some display worthy antiques. The freshest idea I’ve seen lately is actually one of the simplest. It’s from Emily of Jones Design Company. Emily took old gold frames, cut foam core to the size of each frame, then fabric glued linen fabric to it. Each little item is simply pinned to the foam core. You can see more pictures here.

Don’t you think they look great? What about you, Dear Readers? How do you display heirlooms?

P.S. — Here are more ideas on displaying objects. Also. I originally saw Emily’s idea on Say Yes To Hoboken.
