Help Im in a small space and I can’t get out!

14 Dec

Hello Beauties!

I am finding myself more and more drawn to the internet, I used to be a television person until I realized I can learn twice as much, switch to what I want to look at when I get bored, and use the knowledge that I have learned to do things for myself and other people! I am currently having issues with decorating my apartment. It is actually quite large but there isn’t a lot of storage space, however quite a few empty walls. So I am in the market for inspiration…

The earrings and necklaces would have their own frames I think

            

So far I have seen an idea to store my jewelry in old frames that are lined with mesh or metal mesh, I like this idea!! The necklaces of course would have their own frame, however I think the hanging version for the necklaces will have to be slightly different to handle the weight of some of the pieces. Overall I believe chic is the word I am looking for when envisioning what my “displayed” jewelry will look like. I will of course have to thrift these frames, I want them to be unique not a carbon copy of Target or Wal-Mart! I will post pictures of those when they are acquired!

Now onto my current jewelry dilemma…  I have tons of jewelry and the counter space and the pretty jewelry box my husband gave me is not working for my super long necklaces and complicated earrings! I have even resulted in hanging my jewelry from my existing decorations which saddens me seeing as how it makes it look messy and unorganized, and not in a shabby chic sort of way either.

If anyone has any other ideas please!! Let me know. I am also looking for ideas to store my ever explanding shoe collection, I have donated 6 boxes of clothing and shoes because I didn’t have room for them, I can’t part with any more!! Your help would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you for reading! Have a great Tuesday!

Today’s Uhhh-Mazing Piece

5 Dec

Hello Beauties!!

Today I was looking at fashion sites/ blogs and came across one showcasing these beautiful decoupage food trays. These pieces are hand made from vintage books, papers, menus etc. They are covered in glass to keep the item “food safe” equipped with felt on the bottom to prevent slippage. Spilled cheese is wasted cheese, as they say! 🙂 They are wonderful additions to a chic old Hollywood home, a book collector’s safe haven, or any place you want to serve guests in a classy yet unique way!

   These pieces can be found at the website www.parishotelboutique.com. They are all handmade and beautiful! I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I did. They are a little pricier than the average platter, however, it is high end recycling, supporting artists, as well as helping an independent business and not to mention effortlessly chic!! Plus with every purchase in December the website is advertising “Maison Bouche Chocolat” free with every purchase!! If anything, check it out, they have beautiful jewelry furniture and more. Some from estate sales some from other vintage sources, it’s beautiful and outrageously inspiring for my black/white/gray Paris inspired bathroom!

 I hope to start posting a lot more now that I am finding more inspiration and wonderful things to share with you. Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!
