A few weekends ago I spent a couple of happy hours sorting through my wardrobe and reorganising all my skincare and perfume storage. So far I have managed to keep everything tidy which, believe me, is an achievement worthy of fanfare. I am emphatically not a naturally tidy human. One thing that I didn’t get round to, though, was de-cluttering and de-tangling my jewellery – a job that sorely needs doing because it’s all jumbled together in a big ol’ mess. So, to motivate myself into action – I respond well to the lure of a new, shiny thing – I’ve been looking around at storage and display options. Here are some of my favourites:
Hanging my necklaces from hooks on the wall would stop them getting all tangled up and knotted, thus making me a calmer person less likely to resort to LANGUAGE. Plus, it will be easier to see what I’ve got AND it looks pretty – win/win. I’ve tried one of those tree stand thingies but they don’t tend to be tall enough to stop the dratted tangling (although I am rather keen on this one), however West Elm have got that covered with their version, which is certainly tall enough and very gorgeous but out of my price range, sadly:
They do have good sales, though, so there’s still hope (and they do have lots of lovely traditional jewellery boxes too).
I don’t know how I managed to miss these fabulous teapots when I was researching my last post, but I do know I need them. And now I’m betting you do, too…
For small items, like earrings and brooches, this Moomin tea tin is perfect – obviously, as it has Moominmamma on it. More things should have Moomins on them!
If you wear earrings (I don’t), this woodland jewellery stand is a lovely thing to keep them on (there’s a large version too):
I *do* wear rings, and I’ve fallen in love with this sweet little umbrella ring dish from Anthropologie (I know, something affordable from Anthropologie!).
Of course, if I happened to have a spare £22,400 burning a hole in my pocket (ha!), plus the kind of gems that require such fine storage, I could always nip to Cartier for this little number:
