not as intended.

i mentioned that i finally got around to cleaning my jewelry/junk drawer. wish i had some before photos, but just take my word for it...it was a disaster. one day i threw a few important papers in the drawer with the intention of filing it later. next thing i knew it was filled to the brim with mail, receipts, pens, stuff. the bottom of the drawer was starting
to sag. it had that much stuff in it.
found this pink, ceramic cupcake pan at ross a while back.
i had no intention of baking, but it was cute and
i knew i could find a use for it.

you can check out my necklace storage here.

how do you store your jewels?

wooden ikea bowls hold a prior obsession...leather cuffs.


sending a shoutout to samantha of this fashionista for the one lovely blog award. this girl has the best jewelry...i'm always lusting over her tiered earrings and huge rings. and, she wrote a book at age 17?! go check her out. now.

in honor of her book, here's seven book-ish quirks:
1) doesn't have to be new, but i like to buy my books...
compared to borrowing from the library.
2) i carry my books everywhere.
even though i know i won't touch it. but just in case.
3) i love sci-fi, fantasy, murder mysteries.
4) i prefer to watch a movie first, then read the book.
5) i go thru phases, but i'm currently taking forever to
read my books. thus, #1.
6) i love photographing books.
7) i want an entire wall of bookshelves.

serving this to the following lovelies:

  2. I love how you organize your rings!! Mine are all just laying around different areas of my home, it's probably not the best way to store things

  4. So, totally the same on #1, #2 and #5.
    #3 not so much.
    #4 exact opposite.
    #7 I have them. hence #1.

    I use similar strategy for storage. Lots of watch and jewelry boxes, a jewelry armoire within an actual armoire, double sided hooks inside the cabinet walls to hang the necklaces etc.. Will do photos one day.

  5. I love your jewelry collection, and how you store it! The boyfriend bought me this jewelry "wardrobe" at some point, with drawers for earrings, a flip top for rings, and two doors that swing open at the sides to hold necklaces. I love it.

  8. A cupcake pan...what a brilliant idea!

    I have a collection of funky tins I like for storage. Then I also feel like they're earning their keep :-)

  9. You got organize jewelries up there. Just like what I noticed before in your old post I love how you hang your necklaces.

    I just stock my jewelry in their original box and hang my accessories inside the cabinet with the help of a hook.

  18. I use bead boxes for earrings and ring. I currently have each necklace in a zip lock bag...but it is not my favorite. I am still seeking ways to better organize necklaces and belts...thanks for making me think about it!!

  19. I want an entire wall of bookshelves too! That would be perfect! Love seeing how you organize your jewlery, I had a good system and then we moved and I need to work on a new one due to space issues :o)

  20. I love your book-y tidbits! I'm obsessed. It's ridiculous, really. Maybe I should write a post...

    Jewelry-wise, I'm not as inventive as you are! I am so inspired by your storage methods. I may have to steal some ideas!
