Some suggestions:
1) Enter them into your local county's or state fair's competitions.
2) Contact local museums (historical, town, fiber arts, arts and crafts) which may be interested in displaying such items (and/or its citizens who make them). Even if they don't have a current exhibit thay may want them for a display latter, or may even get inspired to make an exhibit just for them.
3) Contact local stores (Bridal shops, knitting/crochet, sewing, crafts) which may be willing to display the items for awhile.
4) Contact the local craft/artisans guild. They may be able to provide a list of festivals, galleries and other places that would be interested in displaying such work (temporarily or permanently). They might also provide advise on insuring the items, should they be lost or damaged while on display somewhere.

Good luck.
Thanks for the tips. I'll look around at a local level and see what I can find.

Meanwhile, I'll post all of the other ones she has made that have been photographed. There's a lot of them, so I made them into sections.

*moved the images to the first post*

Hope you enjoyed them!
