I thought it would be fun to take organizing to a new, more marvelous level. So, we all have these things in our home. If we open up our closets, we want to fix them up, we want everything to be all pulled together and beautiful. And one of the things that we all seem to keep tucked away; we women anyways, is our jewelry. And I don't have priceless jewelry, all my jewelry is sort of costume jewelry, it's bubbly, it's fun. It's stuff I have been collecting from vintage stores and antique shop, since I was probably 17-years-old, and I still have most of it. And now that we design our own jewelry line, I figured it was high time for me to do something very special with it. Right now, most people's jewelry drawers look like this. And really, while it's a fun thing to spy and look at, it's really not all that spectacular and glamorous. You may as well take this, and turn it into something much more special. I mean, in my jewelry drawer, I have all kinds of funky junk and I love that about it, it's kind of like my little magpie asset, President Ford button, little pictures of the boys when they were babies, the chip for an ice cream cone and then just funky big, chunky jewelry and watches and sewing kits. I mean for sure this is one of my kids favorite places to look in, they pull in this drawer and they look in here and there is always so much fun and interesting stuff. Well, I thought it would be fun to take this stuff, take what essentially happens to women, and turn this into sort of this mangled mess of necklaces and earrings and all that stuff, and turn it into something inspiring and beautiful. It is high time that we take our beautiful things and pull them out of the drawers and do something pretty with them. So, don't ask your husband, just jump into this one, and do it. I've got this almirah in our bedroom and I love this, because it's a piece that we designed years ago, but I love it for my books and everything, because I of course have to have books all around me all the time, but I thought this would be kind of the perfect place for me, especially since I have four young boys and their little wondering fingers they are bound and determined to get into everything, this is kind of the place for me. So right now, I just keep books, and a few pretty pair shoes and things like that, just various miscellaneous things in here. But I know what I can turn this thing into because, it's kind of the perfect spot for me. So I am going to take some of my books out, and I can push some of my books back, because I love the way books look at the backdrop anyway. So if you have spare books to keep around or magazines or things like that, they are very pretty anyway. And I love the way stacks of books and magazines look. So then, what I've done is I've kind of collected a range of things, I actually went into our pantry. And I pulled out beautiful little bowls and teacups and pretty little wonderful things. I found this gorgeous little ashtray that my mom gave me years ago. I remember this being in their house, and I pulled this mirror off the wall. We are going to miss one mirror on the wall. I thought, this would kind of pretty in my mix. I just kind of went around the house, and I gathered up interesting things. This beautiful silver bowl that I thought I can pile high with the bracelets and all the cups and things I have. I have pretty little statues and plates and things that I am not quite sure how it's all going to come together, yet we'll sort of do this together, but I think it's going to be fun. I even grabbed these beautiful, this pretty sorbet dish, we designed this years ago, and I thought, oh! This might be perfect for rings. So, this little candle dish might be just the right thing to put some rings in. Even this little funky number, this is, it's actually a Christmas dish to put little goodies and treats in. But I thought, oh! This is so darling to put some rings and things in. So we'll kind of get into this whole thi
