is finally almost finished - my jewelry drawer! I used to keep all this stuff in clear plastic storage boxes, you know the kind - with a dozen little compartments? I had crammed them all into the drawer of the old bedside table. When I got rid of the table with the drawers, I had no convenient place to keep the boxes. It's not like anything is valuable - more sentimental value than anything else, but I do like to wear my funky earrings from time to time. After trying a variety of places throughout the house that just didn't work, I realized I had a really big, flat drawer in the antique desk I'm using for the sewing table in the bedroom. And then I found these adorable ceramic egg crates and well, an idea was hatched.
I couldn't resist that one - sorry!
I did some purging of stuff I never wear and organized the earrings by season and it's much easier to find what I'm looking for now. Sometimes it makes me happy just to look at the stuff - is that weird?
