Accessories And Storage

I got this idea from UmmSultana who got the idea from  Already Pretty about how to store brooches. I jumped into action and decided to use a crochet/lace type length of ribbon I had. I figured the holes will make it easy to pin brooches to it. So I nailed it to the inside of my wardrobe door like so.

Then I simply pinned all my brooches on there and they are easily visible and accessible. What do you think? I love it!

My mom gave me this cute little hanger for jewelery and I was really wanting something to hold my costume jewelery so this was perfect.

So I pinned this coat on Pinterest months ago and also blogged about it here.

 Since then, I got a simple pea coat but, really what I loved was the cute polka dot bow. So when I saw a bit of the same ribbon that my mom had, ding! Light bulb. I made this bow and sewed it to a pin. Here it is on my coat.

Lovely. I love little projects. Simple things, really. They make me happy :) What do you think?
