I'm still unpacking things I bought in Hungary, like this . . . doll cookware (?) I bought at the Christmas Market. One is just a flat dish, but the other three all have little handles. Awwwww.
These teeny tiny, colourful pottery pots and two handled whatsits were too cute to pass up. You know my love for miniature objects. Plus, I already knew where I would use them: my jewellery box. My jewellery armoire already has handy little drawers and cubbies, but tiny dishes like these help to keep smaller pieces organized and untangled. My goal is to organize every inch of the townhouse this year so every. single. thing has a place. I started small, with the jewellery box and my whoozits. Behold the sweet, sweet organization.
I already have quite a few little dishes in there, like this one that I use for keeping track of the clip earrings that go with some of the vintage rhinestone brooches in my collection.
Ahhhhh. Feels better when things are tidy. And yes, I am way too enthused and bossy about organizing jewellery. I reorganized my Mom's jewellery drawer by force and then I made my friend her own jewellery storage display.
Quick tip: if you're ever looking to turn a brooch into a pendant and don't want to try my more permanent suggestion, these little findings loop onto the pin of your favorite brooch and can then be strung onto a chain or cord. Instant pendant!
P.S. See my other "new uses" posts: clip earrings worn a fresh new way, serving dishes to organize jewellery, and a toast stand as a desk organizer.
