1 - Longer hanging necklaces in the bathroom window.
2 - Various items in the window of the laundry closet.
3 - A fantastic jewelry organizer drawer in the walk-in closet (elfa from The Container Store), but you can hardly see it because I just threw shit all over.
So Aaron started grouping all the jewelry and had me decide what to keep and what to toss. At one point we got out this jewelry box and I pointed out that he had given it to me probably 25 years ago for Christmas.
His response: “Pitch it. I clearly underestimated your jewelry obsession.”
Some in-process photos, with our helper Bella.
The idea was to get all the jewelry in one place. This involved buying another organizer drawer, which Bella's sitting in the above photo. We didn't quite accomplish the "all in one place" goal because I also have a collection of small jewelry boxes, some vintage that belonged to relatives, some gifts from various parts of the world. We kept these on the shelves in our bedroom but they currently hold special, non-every-day pieces.
And here's the finished product. The lower right picture gives you the full effect (and yes, Aaron folded my jeans which previously were ... not very neatly stacked).
I have not been compensated in any way for this, but I highly recommend The Container Store. All of our closets are full of elfa products. In fact, when we were building our house we bought most of the shelving in January because of the elfa sale, even though we didn't move in until September. The elfa sale is still going on until February 11 - 30% off!
Have a great weekend and stay warm and safe!
