In my first Fab Finds Friday post, I shared some antiquing purchases with you, one of which was a fun and weathered red F.
Well, what I didn't tell you then was that I have a growing collection of letters around our place. Someday plan to use in a nursery (with the letters in alphabetical order, since I'd want the little one to memorize the alphabet) or maybe a library/office (with the letters scrambled up, just to make things interesting), like these inspiration photos:
I love the robin's egg blue and tangerine together, plus the pops other colors brought in by the letters--I might have to steal the color scheme!
For now the letters have various homes around the apartment, like over our bed:
And perched on our dining room windowsill:
And on a living room end table:
And on our entryway bookshelf:
And on a side table in our bedroom:
And on our office shelf:
And on my desk:
So there you have it! My own alphabet collection. I have a few doubles, but that's fine by me, since I clearly like to stash them around the apartment as decor! I want the overall look of my collection to be very eclectic and fun, so I think in the future I want to buy a few more colorful letters. It's hard to see in the above picture, but the G, P, and U all have different patterns to make them unique. I may end up replacing one of them to mix things up a little bit.
Do you have any collections? Where do you keep them?
