Hello dear readers,
Storage of any item in a home can be problematic, especially if space is at a premium.
My home is not large so I am always on the hunt for interesting yet inexpensive ways to display my jewellery items.
As I am starting to accumulate some nice items of jewellery, I wonder both where to store and/or display it.
Some of my more valuable items are placed in a "proper" case and put away in a drawer.
But others I want to see.
To me they are 'decorator' items in themselves.
Here are a few ways I have displayed some of my personal jewellery items.
This shaving mirror sits on my chest of drawers in my bedroom. The mirror is meant to rotate for magnification when shaving, however that doesn't happen much these days! Too laden with necklaces!
This little metal tree sits in front of the mirror. It's perfect for small bracelets and a few pairs of earrings.
The earring frame is there too.! Oh look at those 60's white earrings... I never wear those!! These frames are easily made from framing materials and wire mesh.
Close by is the porcelain bust. This was probably not the most sensible purchase, the neck is too short and multiple larger items cannot be displayed easily on it. It is interesting to look at but perhaps not ideal for photographic purposes due to surface reflection. But I like it nonetheless.
I really want to acquire an old dressmakers dummy, I have been on the hunt for some time now... hopefully it will come my way one day soon.
Also on the chest of drawers is a lovely old container, an old family heirloom. I love the colours in this
old piece. I usually keep bracelets and my watch in here.

That's it for my own displays.
I came across this very novel storage/display system on Pinterest.
An old rake has been used on the back of a door as a holder for masses of necklaces.
I like the fact that it is sturdy, interestingly attractive and inexpensive.
All one needs is a handyperson to cut the handle from that old rake you have in the shed , and no longer use, clean it up a little and voila, instant display and storage!
ok, that's it for tonight folks,
