Remember those fun jewelry stands I blogged about? Turns out I didn't have to make my own... Nick surprised me with one for our anniversary a few weeks ago! Last weekend I finally got it all set up, and I also nailed some 1" brads into my cheapo mirror for hanging all of my necklaces.
It makes me soooo happy, having everything in its little place now.
While going through my mess of a jewelry box to get it set up, I found a few pairs of earrings I had forgotten about, and I've also been experimenting more with my necklaces now that they're not a big tangled mess that I don't have time to go through in the morning when I'm getting dressed. I've always had a hard time accessorizing with my outfits, but having everything so organized and pretty has made it easier for me to get a little better at pairing things with certain ensembles. I'm getting a wee bit better.
Bonus: this also takes care of number 56 on my 101 in 1001 list.
