But, I had to return to the land of the living today since the stack of work on my desk is taller than a second grader, so here I am.
To make myself feel a little better, I am linking up with Michelle @ The Vintage Apple for "Oh How Pinteresting".
While I was home trying to recover from this vicious sub-acute thyroiditis crap I began making my packing list for European trip... okay I
In doing so, I realized I have a hard time remembering what kind of jewelry I own because it is ALL OVER the place in my house.
I feel like I would wear my ALL jewelry more (instead of the same pieces over and over again) if I could actually SEE it all in one location. So, I took to Pinterest for some inspiration.
|love the idea of using burlap canvases to display jewelry, especially since it will be only two holes in the wall holding up each canvas versus a BILLION holes holding up each piece of jewelry|
|if I were to go the route of burlap canvases, I like the idea of doing them in big rectangles around a corner , as pictured here|
However, I have a TON of earrings, so I think I need a seperate organizer for them alone such as this precious little bird cage-esque holder from Urban Outfitters, if only I could find it somewhere cheaper than $32
|I also like the idea of a peg-board wall with knobs and such such holding my stuff in place, but I think I'd need to paint it to match the wall, or an accent color |
|This cute idea of framing jewelry is all over Pinterest , but I especially like the idea of putting chicken wire or fabric colored foam in the frame to hang your jewelry on |
Currently, here is how all my stuff is "stored" (and I use that term very loosely)...
|some earrings shoved in little boxes|
|some on my Mema's antique earring holder|
|those earring boxes thrown in this drawer with a few of my necklaces and bracelets|
|bracelets and big bead necklaces in this little organizer in my dresser...|
|... but much harder to see when inside the drawer|
|several necklaces hidden behind the door on the wall in the guest room (husband is not happy about all those holes from thumb-tacks, trust me).|
|a few watches and bangles in a tray on my dresser|
How do you store your jewelry?
