Home

Well, they had to take the door off the hinges to get the desk in, my e-mail won't leave my outbox for some unknown reason and already there are little paw prints covering everything, but I'm settled! It was surprisingly easy, all things considered.

Today's post is just a catch up, to get back in the swing of things. I've been neglecting comments and that's definitely a punishable sin.

I've been meaning to take pictures of my how my jewelry is set up, to maybe give people some ideas on organization, and yesterday, I finally cleaned up enough to be okay with showing part of my bedroom to the world. Click on pictures to enlarge.

This is a basic shot of the jewelry corner in our bedroom:



And here are some details:

The bird is from Urban Outfitters, a place that carries quite the array of jewelry hanging things at reasonable prices. The two mosaic-ed hangers are from a shop in Piermont for about $10 each.


The anchors were a DIY project... sorta. There's a local (crappy) "general store" in town that sells all this stuff you never, ever think you'd want, and then suddenly the very thing you require can only be purchased there. I think these stores mostly inhabit beach towns--cheap towels, .50 cent Christmas ornaments, etc. We found the anchor there, as well as the bird and boat hangers. BF put some screws in the anchor, letting them stick out about an inch. I then painted them white and we crazy glued buttons to the tops. I've had this things for three years and it has not once fallen down or lost a button. I remain impressed.


BF's mom gave me this jewelry dresser for Christmas:
I use it for the non-costumey jewelry.

The tuppwerware chills on my dresser top alongside cosmetics:
Top drawer: earrings
Middle drawer: ring
Last drawer: everything else


The Christmas present ring (now joined by stacking rings) gets it's own box:

For now.

Thanks, everyone, for all the working-at-home support. I'll let you know how it goes.

wow you have everything well organized! My jewelry is all inside of 2 boxes from IKEA.

I wish I were that organized. My half-hearted stab at jewelry organization was in the form of buying a little china dish to put my earrings in. Last year. Right now, everything I wear regularly sits in a pile atop my bookshelf, and my nicer other stuff hides in a travel jewelry box in my desk, forgotten until I need something.

I love how you arranged the wall hangings, and I'm seriously impressed by the DIY anchors. It looks cute and artsy without coming off as cluttered. Your necklaces must NEVER get tangled the way mine do. Good luck on your first home work-week!

That looks a lot nicer than the nothing I've got hanging on my walls.

Very organized, good girl! I have all my things crammed into 1930s cigarette boxes, not very glamorous.
