Unusual display cases

I always buy wrought iron stands even if I don't have any ideas at the moment of how I will use them.  In the past, I have used them as shoe stands or some as plant stands.  Take a look at the picture of how I displayed my sons growing collection of nutcrackers.  It looks great and leaves room for him to add a lot more.

A few years ago, I bought a few large wooden (doll) houses.  I wasn't sure where I would store or display them, but, I loved how they looked.  I came across an article in an issue of Country Living Magazine of how a homeowner used a large doll house in her laundry room.  So, I borrowed that idea and hung up one of mine.  It now holds all kinds of items that I use regularly.

So, don't be afraid to buy something that you like just because you can't think of an immediate need for it.  You never know when inspiration will strike.
