Jewelry Boxes & Other Things......

OK, we're all girls right (unless your a male visitor to my blog....), and we all love our jewelry don't we?

I know for a fact that I do and I'm curious to know how you store and/or display your jewelry.

Most of my jewelry is stored in a jewelry box that sits on top of my dresser. My jewelry box looks a bit like an armoire and has three smaller drawers on the top portion next to a glass fronted door that opens to a space that has a revolving thing-a-ma-jig with hooks that I can hang necklaces on. The bottom portion of the jewelry box has two wider drawers.

I love how it came painted just the perfect shade of creamy white and it fits in so well with my Shabby Chic/Cottage style of decorating.

I have dreams of someday being able to have someone build me a custom made jewelry box as I would actually prefer one very similar to the one I have, but one that is much wider and maybe a bit shorter, but still retains look of a piece of furniture.

For the jewelry I wear almost everyday which I remove at night, I keep those in a pretty Royal Albert dish, that of course has some yummy roses on it.

Maybe someday, when my budget allows, I actually buy one of those larger jewelry armoires if I can find one that has just the look I am wanting. Of course, when I'd first get it, it would have lots of empty storage spaces, but I can guarantee that I would sure have fun doing some jewelry shopping to fill it up...

Hope you've all been having a great week where you are. Enjoy what's left of it and have a great weekend!!

G'eve, Kim ~

That is a lovely jewelry chest.

I keep all mine in an eye carton hidden away ... isn't that awful but I don't feel comfortable with them out.

Have a beautiful day ~
Hugs, Marydon

Hi Kim,
I have a jewelery chest almost identical to yours only mine is dark wood. My bottom drawer pulls out and the music plays. I have been tempted to paint it white and after seeing yours, I may just do that! Have a nice weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi, Kim! My jewelry is strung all over the place but the items I wear the most are on my dresser top in a little rose bowl! ♥
