I have been collecting cut glass and crystal trinket boxes for as long as I can remember, from antique shops in small seaside towns and Saturday morning auctions, and sometimes, rare charity shop finds -- French cut crystal with golden hinges and in perfect condition. Sprinkled all over the house, they are useful for holding paper clips and thumbtacks on the desk, matchboxes on coffee tables and bookcases, hairpins and lipgloss in the powder room and rings and things on the vanity. They all add instant glamour with their glittery faceted reflections, French crystal catching the light on a Monday morning. Their uses are endless. Here, we've rounded a few inspirational ways to use these beautiful pieces from a time gone by, and you can shop our brand new selection at shop.thisisglamorous.com ...
