Trays are simply an easy and attractive way to organize
our STUFF. Also, if all of these boxes are dispersed on tables,
cubbies, shelves, dresser tops, etc. you really don't enjoy
them as much as when they are all together. It can also
be somewhat of a surprise when all gathered together, how a
collection has grown.
HERE ARE A FEW NEW TRAY IDEAS. . . .
I love to take a small vintage perfume bottle and make
a mini arrangement of flowers and place on a porcelain tray.
This tray is in our powder room and is always filled with various
containers which are in turn filled with flowers. I used this
combination over the holidays, colors are right, but the type
of flowers, a nice surprise. Just love tulips in the winter!
A gathered grouping of objects on a silver tray. . .a crystal
biscuit box, a paper weight that makes me smile (given to me by
my daughter) and a little bird holding a glass container on his back
with a lily. Alone, these items not so significant. . . gathered on a
tray, they take on a different significance.
This tray is a fiber made from the leaves of bananas. A little
blue and white, a little bit of the ocean and a vintage hurricane
I got out an old bread tray and put two small vases filled with Ipernicum,
fresh Fir branches and a battery operated votive.
Objects of the kitchen. . . . dinner bell, cinnamon sugar
in a vintage jar and a silver muffineer.
A vintage tray with some lambs in from the pasture,
snow covered miniature trees and a votive light. This
was on the breakfast table almost the whole season this
This silver tray is in the master bath and it is footed.
Make up brushes, dresser jars, perfume and a fresh rose
in a little vintage container. The scissors, tweezers, hair clips
are in the old spooner. The q-tips are in a silver cigarette

So many people have trays in closets and boxes that might just
need a little polishing, but get them out and create organization
on just about any kind of tray you can imagine. If you do, I would
just love for you to share them with me.
A TRAY PARTY is in the making. . . . . girlfriends creating their hearts
out for a photograph to be shared with all of you.
