Creative Display Geraldine JamesCreative Display Geraldine JamesCreative Display Geraldine JamesA few favourite pages from the beautiful book Creative display by Geraldine James. A woman after my own heart, finding new ways of piling up and styling interesting finds with natural elements, books, magazines and all the other kinds of wonderful things you may have collected over years of creative treasure hunting.

I was sent a copy and wanted to share it and pass it on, to someone who is looking for new ways to arrange their possessions and showcase unusual collections. Just leave a comment and if you use twitter or Facebook please share the link to this post, then I will pick out a winner next Monday xxx
