Hello everyone! I’m so glad that you are here.
I have always been one that has to have everything in its place. When I was a teenager my friends thought that it was just wrong that my room was so clean and that I had a place for everything. But what do expect when both of your parents were the same way. I always lived in a Better Homes & Garden home. That’s just how it was and I assumed that everybody’s else was the same way. LOL I thank my parents for teaching me this great quality.
Do you have a place for your jewelry? I have always been one that has put my jewelry in a jewelry box, I would have to use the hunt and peck method to find what pieces I wanted to wear, this was bugging me. So I made up a system that works for me, and it is not all in one place either. Here it is:
I rummaged through my house to see what I could use to put my bracelets on, I was really surprised what I found. An antique lamp, hand, several different sizes and colors of vases and one see through box. I put them all on a lovely shelf that I have in my bedroom. I love having my bracelets out because now I can see them and I wear them more often. They are also very fun and colorful and add to the decor in my bedroom.
This is the other half of the self.
In this picture I have taken my pearl necklaces and put them the post of my dresser. So LOVERLY!
I took an old picture frame and padded it with batting and put a pretty piece of fabric over it and it is perfect for hanging necklaces, and earrings. I use straight pins to hold the necklaces on.
Then I got an even better idea for the frame and thought it would look great to frame some of my jewelry like a picture. Here I have my deer necklace and bracelet on it. It’s so pretty to look at.
I use a lot of old jewelry to embellish my crafts with.
This is my most beautiful jewelry hanger. Juliette just had to get into the picture to share her necklace. Love that girl! She’s my ninth grandchild.
Here is an earring holder that I made out of a vintage frame and wire.
I love hanging my necklaces on my dress forms,and busts.
It’s all very simple and fun. The thing that I enjoy the most is having it out so I can remember what pieces I have, kind of like on display in a store you know where it always looks so sparkly and pretty.
This is a little old piece that I love, it’s probably the least inexpensive piece that I own but it has special memories, and I have it since I was a girl. I have always been a collector and jewelry is one of my favorite to collect.
If you have a drawer or box of tangled up pretties somewhere take the time to go through it and you’ll surprise yourself with what you have. It will be like Christmas!
Have a beautiful over the hump day!
It’s all so LOVERLY!
