So…I realized I told a white lie in my last post about my new corner shelf. I mentioned that it was the latest addition to our home, but that’s not true and I don’t know how I could have forgotten the reason why. My parents gave me a jewelry armoire this Christmas, and I could not have received a better-suited gift. Pre-Christmas, my jewelry was all over the place. A mash-up of everything was in my big red jewelry case, the majority of my necklaces were in a Michael’s craft organizer, I had bracelets and bangles in a plastic Rubbermaid drawer organizer and a large Ziplock bag, and I had a wide assortment of my most commonly worn pieces strewn around the inside of my wardrobe and on the shelves in the bathroom. It was not pretty, which is contrary to the very nature of jewelry!
The armoire my parents gave me is from Pier 1, and I am so extremely happy with it. It fits everything I own, and even though it doesn’t look like it, there is, indeed, room to spare. Welcome to my version of the Barbie Dream Home:
