What's It Wednesday #86
I'm on a quest to get things out of boxes and drawers, and have them out where I can enjoy them, or out they go. A little “late” Spring cleaning, so to speak.
celluloid collars were invented so your shirt became a “dress” shirt, and the collar was always clean. (Even if the rest wasn't!?) The box is just gorgeous with this pretty lass on the front and the fancy fasteners So feminine, but they were made to hold men's collars. The top for collars and the bottom for cuffs.
I have a few beaded collars and wanted to use them in a special way. I took this old frame and lined it with lace. Then I displayed my gold beaded collar, (and a bit of bling of course!) That's all it took, and I was on a roll!
This was fun! I lined this gorgeous frame with burlap and an over lay of lace. I added three beaded collars with cameos as the fasteners ( That's a 2 for!)
I ran a strip of silk down the center so the collar backs didn't show. (There are labels there.) Not very romantic.
There you have it, out of the drawer and where I can enjoy them. Now are you hot under the collar, too?

Very clever. I have some vintage pearl collars. We used to wear them in the 60s. Love the addition of the cameos. Wish you would show some close up photos of the cameos sometime.

I think the way you have displayed the lace collars is inspired, they look so pretty. The boxes for the gentlemen's collars are beautiful, I hope they were appreciated at the time!
Your display of the beaded collars is beautiful and so creative using the lace overlay over burlap. Thanks so much for hosting and the reminder.
Thank you for hosting. I have always thought the pearl necklaces were just gorgeous. Your displays should be in a museum....Beautiful!
Oh I love this post!
You have displayed these treasures so beautifully!!!
You have truly made me want to take a tour of your home. I love that box!! The way you have displayed the collars is beautiful. It would even be a cute way to show gloves, or anything pretty. xoxo,Susie

Wow! You are so creative! Everything looks great. Thanks for hosting.
Your collections never cease to amaze me. These are stunning and I love the way you have them displayed.
Patti, your beaded collars are gorgeous. They really are too pretty not to put out and enjoy them. The way you chose to display them is so smart!
Okay... I love it when you are "on a roll"!... your collar box and collars are gorgeous!... I have spent the last two weeks cleaning out, sorting, straightening closets and cupboards... getting some items ready to donate, some to put in my Etsy shop... (maybe???)... vowing I won't start any more collections... then I visit my sweet friend Patti... and now I am ready to shop for vintage collars!... I would love a complete tour of your home... it must be like visiting an enchanted castle with all of your exquisite collections... don't be surprised if one day I show up at your home (I have your address you know!)... and say "let's shop till we drop Patti!"... love you pretty lady, xoxo Julie Marie

Patti and Paula,
Thanks for hosting such a great party each week. I just love all the inspiration.
Your collars are so lovely. I had a beautiful beaded collar when I was a teen. I kept it forever but during our last move some things disappeared. I did enjoy seeing your today they brought back many memories.
I love the way you are displaying them, so clever.
I tried to link up last night but had trouble getting my picture to load.
I resized it today and posted directly from my computer.
Have a Blessed Week,
Beautiful collars and I love how you displayed them. They are too pretty to be hidden away. Thank you for joining the Open House party.
what a sweet idea to frame the collars, patti! so clever and pretty! thanks for hosting us:)
Love your idea of getting things out of the box and out to see...I need to do that too! Lovely what you did with the collars! Love linking up every week too! Thanks for the party!
Those wall vignettes with the collars are unlike anything I've seen....totally gorgeous!
Your collars are beautifully displayed! I have one of those from my MIL.It is so pretty never thought to display it that way.Thanks for the inspiration!
Love love love! Thanks for linking up. Getting a new camera soon so I can get back to joining fun parties like yours!
What you did with the collars is beautiful and original.
Thank you for hosting such a great link party!

What a great idea to frame the collars that way! Sometimes we start collecting things and yet, trying to figure out a creative way to display them, can stump us. Just delightful!!!
Oh goodness, you have the most fabulous collections! What a great idea, I am so keeping my eyes open for a beaded collar, I would love to put it in a frame!
Such a good idea. Thank you for hosting the party.

I've always loved those old collar boxes. Thanks for hosting.
Patti, I think its a great idea. It looks very romantic. I have some lace collars.. just sitting in a fancy round jar.. I must take them out to see what I can do with them.. I want to thank you for your visit. I love it .. Have a great day today with love Janice
What a fabulous idea,with Collars,just loved it.Can't stop drooling over it!
Very nice pictures, this framework with necklaces is gorgeous!
Oh my those frames with your beautiful collars in them are so very lovely. I am so jelly... over them. they are beyond lovely... What beautiful works of art, oh and you collar box is just beautiful. I wanted to thank you for hosting and for visiting Tea Cottage Pretties and for following. It makes my heart sing!! Hugs, Beverly
What an interesting collection! Such beauty in old things. I really love how you chose to display them...sometimes that makes all the difference in elevating a simple object to regal status. Thank you kindly for hosting!
Your vignettes are always so beautifully arranged, and you have one of the most exclusive collection of Victorian style goodies! I once had a 1940s pearl collar as such, and I enjoyed wearing it! Two moves across the country didn't help from losing so many of my vintage pieces!
THANK YOU for your visit and kind words. Whatever art we seek, let's keep doing it and improving it - but before we can master anything, I have to master the over-enthusiasm of thrill-seeking, and learn the craft first. That's what I've been doing in my poetry writing class all summer. It has been such an eye-opening experience!
Have a lovely day dear Patti! Anita
Oh..Patty...what a romantic and original idea! You' re are very creative. I love the way you displayed these gorgeous collars and the frame is fabulous.
what a creative idea!! Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop xo
Good morning sweet ladies! I love seeing what you're pulling out to display and enjoy! You surround yourself with beauty...how wonderful! Enjoy your day! I'm linked! HUGS!
Awesome post. I love Hot under the Collar, beautiful.
Great features also. I'm your newest follower via GFC and Bloglovin.
Thanks for sharing at our Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop.
Love the vintage collars ladies! Thanx for joining THT!
My maternal grandmother got married in her daily clothes (long story: greatgrandfather didn't allow the wedding, my dear father was on the way - miracles do happen you know?!... long story) so she just put a crochet collar over her sweater to add the bridely look.
Those were the times Dear Friend. But I do think we're living the best ever because we can appreciate the romance and whimsy of the stories without the hardship that those years must have been.
As usual your pieces are PRICELESS. So glad they're coming out to play... with us.
On the other side my maternal grandfather was very poor and when the people he worked for sent him to take a picture in a photographer he worried how his poor clothes would look in it. Then his boss said "Dont worry António, the holes will look like lace in the picture" ahahahah
Hi, Patti. You are always so creative with your vignettes and how you display your lovely collections! These are no exception. And thank you for the bit of education about collars and cuffs, etc. Had no idea! And btw, thank you for visiting and sweet comments about my white baptism table, Patti. ~Zuni
Beautiful collars and what a gorgeous way to display them. Things like that do need to come out of the drawers and be enjoyed! Thanks for linking to TTF.
This collar box is gorgeous! I don't have any collars, so I think I would use it as a jewelry box or maybe hold wedding treasures. The frame you made is very lovely, what a clever idea. There is always something unique in your home, and that's what makes it special. I am thinking a lot lately about what you said....if it's in a box and not out to see, then I want to get rid of it. I've been doing a bit of spring cleaning too.
I think my favorite was the beaded collar.
What beautiful displays with the beaded collars. I remember having one of those, but don't know what happened to it!
I'm also getting things out of drawers and boxes and displaying them to enjoy.
Thanks so much for hosting...luv your collars.
Beautiful displays! The collars are lovely. Great post, have a happy weekend!
So lovely! And so much goodness to visit!
The collars look beautiful framed Patti .Everything was so beautiful in the old days, but those shirts must not have been very "fresh" LOL.
So creative with the collars! Thanks for linking up at the Inspiration Gallery.
Those collars are lovely. I've never heard of a collar box nor ever seen one before. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you so much for this awesome party dear ladies, as I am joining again with my new post! Thank you for liking my DIY cake stands, I love them too, specially the cobalt blue one. Have a happy weekend.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by. Love what you did with the beaded collars the lace and burlap are beautiful.

Love that beaded collar in the frame.
I love this idea. I too have too much stuff in boxes, drawers, cabinets you name it. Stuff that is really meant to be seen and not hidden yet my energy level has not matched my ideas in months. I shall start small with one idea as you have and move forward. I love the framing of vintage finds. I recall growing up grampa always said, "boys, I don't care if your britches are dirty but make sure your whites are clean and starched for Sunday" He always spoke of the purity of a white shirt in God's house. You gave me a precious memory tonight. Thank you. Tammy
You inspired me with your projects. I love 'em all and I love the light fixture too! I like your style!
Your post is lovely.
The images are amazing!
:D Thanks for linking-up. Wow, what a wonderful way to display and actually enjoy the pretty beaded collars! The box is interesting, too. I can imagine wearing a pretty collar like that to an afternoon tea.
A friend of mine had a collection of very nice handkerchiefs with exquisite lace. She ironed them then pressed them between two pieces of glass with a simple gold frame around it. Then the lace really popped because she displayed them on a wall painted a deep green. So pretty!
Enjoy your weekend!
Such a pretty way to display those gorgeous little items that we all tend to keep boxed up! I had always wondered why many of the old novels I read talk about men working in the their "shirt sleeves," usually the scriveners in Dickens novels. Now I think I get it after reading about the collar and cuffs! That box is gorgeous! Thank you for sharing with Inspired Sunday at Sunday View!
The beaded collars are so lovely! Thanks so much for hosting!
This post is so lovely Patti. I love seeing your beautiful collections, but this one is one of my favorites and your photos are so lovely!
hugs from here...
What you did with the collars is so pretty and creative! Very nice indeed. Today is my blog's 100th day, linking up my recent junkin finds. Take care - Dawn
I just love, love, LOVE those collars displayed in the old picture frames! Absolutely gorgeous! Following you now :)
The display of those collars are just fantastic! Thanks for your lovely comment...
Patti I love this idea of getting things out so we can enjoy!
You have displayed your collars so beautifully. You have some wonderful collections. Thank you for stopping by.
Thanks for linking-up! Oh, I thought about this post last night. One of the characters on Pretty Little Liars had a pearl collar on a plain black seater. She looked so cute!
so pretty, love how you have these beauties displayed!!
Just beautiful! I love your display ideas so much...and your history lessons are always fascinating!
Best Wishes and Blessings,
I too love getting things out of the drawer or cabinet and using them! Your displays are so clever.
Wonderful to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays!
