Collections: Dutch clogs

Sometimes I don't realise how many of something I have until I put them all together and then I think 'Oh! that's a collection.'

Some things tend to be distributed around the house and then other things I put all together. But I find it hard sometimes to think of the best way to display a collection. I have laid these clogs out together for the first time today and quite like them all in a line. What do you think? How do you display your collections? Any imaginative suggestions?
In other news, I have been baking. Mince pies. They look rustic, but actually they are as light as air courtesy of this dead easy recipe. I know because I've already scoffed one.



























According to the lady from whom I bought this carved platter (car boot £2), her father brought it back from Hungary many years ago. I've got a bit of a collection of them too...

Clogs! Sweet wee things.
Lucky for me, my collections are wearable,(Clothes/handbags/shoes/hats...blah blah) or usable! (kitchen crap!)
Makes lfe a bit easier, I suppose!
The clogs would look pretty cute mounted on the wall, but not sure how.......! X

Thanks everyone for your thoughts and comments. I can confirm, the mince pies went down well! The clogs, another day. I think all together would be good, I shall try that, thank you. xx

I've linked to the recipe. It's the easiest one I've ever tried. I recommend it :)
