I was just muckin’ around a bit on different blogs and came upon this one…http://tresorsdeluxe.wordpress.com/2012/07/03/keeping-it-organized-minimizing-the/ . I thought to myself, “I’ve got a great idea similar to the ones pictured right in my bedroom and I should share.”
I’ve been using this Chinese calligraphy brush holder to organize my own collection of precious, semi-precious and fashion jewelry since coming to China in 2005. It’s gone with me to 3 different cities and has served a wonderful purpose – keeping my lovely collection ‘in my face’ so I can wear it. I’ve got another nice organizer on a fancy clothes hanger made out of chintz fabric hanging on the back of my door in my bedroom hallway and sometimes I forget what baubles are there.
The holder stands on a gold lacquer place mat with my collection of wrist watches and my variety of colours and styles of reading glasses sits in a clear glass vase. Rings, broaches, and earrings are stored in little jewelry bags hanging from their ties. And a Pashmina scarf covers up an unsightly chest of drawers. Another project for another day!
