Things I Love: Re-Purposing

Are you tired of me talking about a fresh New Year start yet? Well I'm not quite ready to stop yet. I've cleaning and purging up a storm. A possible blog sale may be in the works shortly. Either that or a big Ebay haul. For now I am reassessing everything I possibly can and seeing what I need, what I like and what has to go.

I've been trying to figure out a good way to store my earrings for awhile now. and nothing seems to work all that great. But I recently saw a picture in C Magazine of of a Woman's vanity which had her jewelry spilling out of little bowls and platters. So I looked around my house for what I had and decided one of my vintage champagne coupes would be prefect to dangle earring off of.

It's the perfect solution for now and I didn't have to buy anything new! You can find champagne coupes at most antique stores and Goodwill's/Salvation Armies and depending on the quality they can be rather cheap, perfect for when you don't plan to use them for drinking!

I placed earrings that could but hung on the inside.

And I set up my ring bowl and an Amber container next to the coupe.

Inside the Amber container I stored some of my studs!

Incorporating a Green lifestyle, like re-purposing or shopping for vintage and used items is another great thing to attempt in the New year!

  1. I recognize a pair of earrings there!

    My jewelry is about to an extreme organization this weekend, I couldn't be more excited. I always try to find unique ways that make my jewelry seem like art, and still easy to reach.
