For a while now I have been longing for order amongst me jewels. It's not that I have so many that I have no space for them. It's just that most of them are beaded necklaces that love to get tangled together in some type of bead melding that I don't appreciate. Last Monday, on another leg of our 'find the perfect couch' mission, Joel and I went to Freedom. There we found a number of things that took our fancy - ok, mine! One of those being a gorgeous frame with a velvet covered foam board inside it - to hang your jewellery on!! wow! Boy did I want! But, being a little bit of a scrooge and also not generally being capable of buying things I didn't set out to buy (a later, small purchase, being the reason for the qualifying 'generally'!) I left the store without it.
Skip to Saturday morning. Joel and I love to do all our cleaning in one fell swoop and Saturday mornings is it at out place. Joel attacks the carpets and the kitchen while I scrub the bathroom and wash our clothes. (Now that's a good man!!) It just so happens that this Saturday I couldn't walk past anything without cleaning it and in that process I found the following frame and the beginning of a very good idea!
It was sitting in a cupboard. I obviously didn't want it up any more (I bought it in High School to go with my 'sea theme' room). With a bit of imagination, a bit of hard sanding, some pretty fabric and a few wall pins I could have the solution to my problem.
A bit over an hour later...
A little bit of rustic charm in my bedroom today!
No more mess, no more tangled beads and one very proud and happy girl!!
