Sometimes I try to keep this house fairly...unisex? Sometimes. And then there are the times when I think 'to hell with it!' I'm the only one who cares about the decor (unless you count B4's penchant for Thomas and other licensed paraphernalia), so sometimes I end up Girling It Up a bit!
With all of this jewellery re-arranging I've been doing this week, I saw another opportunity to make something gorgeously girly and functional!!
After a trip to Diva during the week, I had come home with 10 new pairs of earrings...Oops! For $12.95 (similar to this pack)! Though I knew that I
desperately sort of needed the new assortment of bling, I hadn't really thought about where I was going to put it all. Despite my two jewellery boxes, I couldn't imagine them sitting pretty amongst the others. Part of what drew me to them in the first place, was the romantic colour palette of blush, nude, pink, white and crystal. If I mixed them in with everything else, they would loose their softness, and I wouldn't be as inclined to wear them.
So, I put them here!
|A gorgeous, big silk blossom from Diva. Every time I go to wear it in my hair, I end up putting it back as it really is too big for everyday wear. But I would happily have it sit on my dresser for ever more because I think it is just lush!|
|Gratuitous macro photos...|
|Are these not the most adorable chairs you've ever seen??|
|Soft champagne colours are so divine!|
|Thank you Diva for all of these little affordable preciouses!|
|Next to the earrings, sits my favourite moisturiser ever (which I would link you up to, but it has since been discontinued, boo). I splurged on this after returning from our honeymoon at the EcoAsis where they totally spoiled us with an assortment of Mor products to try at our leisure. I love the bottle, most of all, because it's refill-able! Great for thriftychicks who don't want to replace a $50 bottle of moisturiser! I'll probably fill it with an old, cheap favourite once I've used up all the good stuff! Oh, and on top sits my Grandfather's signet ring, and a little key charm rescued from an old tacky 21st gift box that got overhauled in the bedside table declutter.|
|I absolutely adore my little cluster of romance, and I can't think of a prettier use for what was once an unwanted tealight holder!|
|Oh, and after I took the first few photos, I found these pretty pebbles which I then added to help the flowers nestle in a bit better...|
|.. It's all about the detail for me and the pebbles are so subtle but perfect!|
Have you got something lying around that would make a unique display area for your precious treasures? Touches like this really make a house feel like a home to me. I could never rock the minimalist look, no matter how hard I tried!
Coming up soon, I have an exciting project to reveal! You'll have to stay tuned if you'd like to see the results of a big Decluttering Session I did with a close friend....
