A Collection Of Creatively Displayed Collections

By: Wendy Atterberry / September 8, 2009

When I still lived by myself in Chicago, before I moved to New York and in with my then-boyfriend (now husband), I had a collection of coffee cups gathered from thirft stores, garage sales and inherited from friends, that I displayed on my kitchen walls in much the same way as the cups in this photo. The photo is part of a larger collection itself on Apartment Therapy of unique ways in which various collections are displayed. I got rid of all but three of four of my favorite mugs (two people can only squeeze so much into a one-bedroom Manhattan apartment), but seeing all these fun collections has me itching to start a new one. Even more reason to move to a bigger apartment in more spacious Brooklyn! [via Apartment Therapy]
