First you get a little, then you get a lottle!

A couple of days ago I decided to cheer up the corkboards on which I pin my jewellery – necklaces, pendants and earrings – so got my long-suffering husband to dig through the art supplies he patiently packed away for me a few weeks ago and find my box of glitter and stick-on shapes. I had a great time sticking on butterflies, hearts and stars (second childhood, anyone???) but then made the mistake of wandering into my study and seeing ….more plain walls!  So off I went with the butterflies and stars and dolphins and hearts and had a grand time sticking and decorating. My husband walked in, blinked and muttered: “Thank god I don’t live in here” and wandered out looking somewhat discombobulated (he’s into model railways, we live to differ!). Here are the results, plus you get to look at close-ups of my crystal collection, built up since 1996 – although a lot of have been passed on to new owners and some more have entered the ranks of my collection..

  1. Wow!! Gorgeous!! 😀 I’m so jealous!! Such a beautiful crystal collection, and what a fab way to display your jewellery!! ♥♥


  2. So awesome. And I thought I had a lot of jewelry. Especially since I don’t wear it any more. It’s just that I’ve given so much of it away, I only kept the ones I really liked too much to get rid of. Still have a lot of butterflies, so I may have to get a corkboard to display them. I love my butterflies.


  3. I like the butterflies, Mo. Isn’t it wonderful when you find something simple that makes you smile.
    I’m a person who really needs *color*… The other day, with yet another snowfall, I craved yellow. It’s such a happy color. I went to my new “toy” (Pinterest) and searched for yellow. The more yellow I saw, the better I felt. Suddenly I had an entire board called “Mad about Saffron.” If only I could take it to meetings at work, where I really need to smile! 🙂


  4. Thanks for all your comments. I used to get all my necklaces muddled up and it took ages to unravel, which is why I resorted to the cork board, much simpler. And yes, butterflies are lovely, my workroom looks far cheerier when you walk in.
