Golden way to start the morning

Recently I just acquired a desire to make my sweet little apartment more of a home. I wanted to give a feeling of being beautiful but not in a flashy sense. Enter the re-doing of my jewelry in my room. It's a small place to start, but considering I have about 3 jewelry boxes... now 4... it's not that small! Its where I start my mornings, and one of my favorite spots.

So I decided to take out all my necklaces and put them all full display. Instant wall decor AND I get to look at my pretty pieces all at the same time! I call that a win-win situation! Here's a peek at what I did, it's very simple: thumbtacks in bright colors to support my various necklaces.

And for the rest of my earrings and pretty things, I have the traditional wooden boxes. I wanted something more unique. Enter Jacquelyn of Everyprettything and her amazing jewelery chests! She creates everything from pillows and wall hangings to hair clip holders and frames. My favorite though, is without a doubt her lovely boxes for trinkets. I asked her to create one for me, and she did it beautifully.

Doesn't it just fit in beautifully? I can't tell you how invigorating it is to reach for my ring/bracelet/other jewelry item and see the bold black lines and marigold print. It always starts my day beautifully!!

Much love,



  1. I hate to tell you this, but I am STEALING that necklace idea! That is such a cute way to display them.

    I'm so glad you love your box! I adored making it for you, it's the boldest one in my repertoire!

  2. Nothing beats getting your life a bit more organized! My house and I have a romantic date on Sunday to do just that :) I adore how your jewelry nook is all organized...and the jewelry is serving dual duty...accessorizing you AND decorating!!!! Genius :) Happy Friday!
