Recently I found this little cupboard at a yard sale for $15. When I opened it up and saw all of the little cubby holes, I couldn't resist buying it.I dug around in my scrapbooking papers and found these paisleys in different colors to cover the back of the cupboard.

The little cubbies are perfect for displaying some of my small collectibles.
Here are little pumpkins with a Fall-themed plate and a couple of my antique Thanksgiving postcards.

I also like my small collection of antique doll dishes in the cupboard.

Some of my favorite sewing collectibles!!!

A little wooden sewing box and a trade card.

How funny is this monkey trade card mending little monkey's britches?
A wicker sewing basket, a floral tape measure and several generations of my family's silver thimbles.

Any ideas of what else could be displayed in this charming little cupboard?

Thanks for stopping by,

I have an idea! You need to go back and get three or four more cupboards! LOL

Seriously, it is a super find and you've done a good job of making it look great.

OH NO!! You're going to need to find 3 more cabinets so you can display it all!!! I don't know how you're going to choose just one of those lovely displays. I really like the craft paper in the back. I think that idea works beautifully.

I thought it was adorable with the door closed, but once you decorated it and displayed your different collectibles it entered a whole other realm...You can rotate your treasures ever month or so and it will stay a favorite focal point wherever you hang it.
