hang in there

I know I went AWOL.  This past week has shown me the true challenges of having small children.  It’s them or this.  I’m sorry, I chose them.  I don’t get on the computer when Toddler L is at home unless he’s sleeping.  When he sleeps I need Baby S to be cooperative and either sleep or sit comfortably so I can work.  That didn’t happen this week. 

Someday I’ll figure out how to work in my sleep.

On a completely unrelated note, check out this idea…


I have always really liked the look of an eclectic grouping of pictures.  Now that grouping can be useful as well as beautiful.

Grab some thrift-store frames, fiberboard and lovely paper.

Cabinet knobs and pushpins hold necklaces and bracelets. Earrings dangle from lengths of ribbon hung horizontally across a frame.  Brooches and pins slide easily into a corkboard backed frame.

I’m thinking yes. 

Now if only I could get my hands on that gorgeous bag too.

  1. I love this idea! Too bad we have troublesome cats…

  2. Great idea ! I have a basketful of necklaces that I have been wanting to organize. They are one item I buy once or twice a year, and although I am not manually inclined I lOVE the idea and might just muster up the courage to try !

  3. Hmmm…I love this. Want to come over and help me figure out how to work it in the new space? 🙂

  4. This is an awesome idea! I like how you can see everything…..but it doesn’t take up space like a jewelry boxes or little dishes to hold your jewelry. And I am all about seeing all my stuff or I never use it.
