I pretty much LOVE Elvis.  There is no denying it.  Christmas and Birthday's are always FULL of Elvis gifts.  I've been to Graceland-- the whole nine yards.

I recently tried to down-size on some of my collection-- a girl I worked with also loved Elvis so I gave her some of my stash.  However, I am left with numerous tin signs, two large posters, about 9 8x10 photographs, a vintage magazine, a framed record, a beanie baby and a couple of postcards.

I live in an apartment in a tiny room, and I am so overwhelmed.  I feel like it all looks scattered about.  I don't mind displaying my love for my favorite artist, but I don't want my entire room to look like a SHRINE.

Anyone have suggestions or tips on what they do with their collections?

An artist is someone who produces things that people don't need to have but that he - for some reason - thinks it would be a good idea to give them.   -Andy Warhol

Would it be bad if it looked like a shrine? Cheesy
I had some neighbors who had a whole wall of their kitchen done in KISS memorabilia.  Then they painted the rest of the room to match the color scheme.  It was awesome and really unexpected colors that looked fabulously unique.

I collect dragons.  I spaced them through my house.  I have about 10 in the bathroom and they don't look overwhelming.  I have a few in my kitchen and a ton in my bedroom.  I try not to clump them up but instead put them in unexpected places.

I hope you find a fun way to display it that makes you feel great!
