This week it's about accessories. I made a collage for the post and one of the pictures I found was a large framed cork board for jewelry.
Well, I started thinking, and feeling pretty guilty. Last winter I started a similar display in my closet. And trust me when I say started. Most of my bling ends up on the coffee table, bedside table, kitchen counter or any other flat space I'm near when I start my dress down.
So, for the last couple of days my mission has been to finish what I started. I went from room to room gathering up all of my necklaces, bracelets and earrings.........Whoa!! It was like going shopping, only in my own house.
(I should say this coincides with my planned family cleaning of the house this weekend! Holidays are coming and I have to get rid of my carefree attitude that seems to find me every summer.)
I used a past "Lucy Ricardo" project that went awry. It is just sheets of insulation covered in textured, wallpaper. It's super easy to cut, light weight and easy to hang. If you play your cards right the guys at the home store will cut it for you, I used a carpet cutter and at one point a chef's knife........Anything you have will do. I hung the jewelry with push pins, if the item is heavy use 2 or 3. Seems to work fine for me.
What I am about to show you if your heart is strong enough to see is my somewhat finished bling board.
This is what I wear on a day to day basis. I have my vintage jewelry, earrings and pins stored in little flat, plastic containers with dividers........Can't quite figure out what else to do with them. My scarves live happily next to the jewelry board and the belts are their neighbors.
So here is a little peep into my closet, hope it inspires you to get off your butt and organize your bling
..........Maybe next week I'll do in on shoe storage......Is it to early to put away flip flops?
Got some bling to show off this week? Stop on by and link up to Trending Through the Decades
No rules, no attitude, no problem!
