My first trade......

So one of the cool things about etsy is that you can trade with others rather than buy their item. I was contacted to see if I would do a trade, and I did!
I traded this little onesie and bootie set for a really cool necklace! The necklace was from the etsy shop MakePieNotWar. I really love it!














So while my brain was thinking of jewelry, I had to think of some more ways to store and display my jewelry which was getting out of control....
So I came up with this. Not particularly clever, but just wait until I add a ribbon hanging at the top, some feathers and a big flower to the frame. OOO la la!
This first picture is of this ugly picture I bought at our local discount store for $5. I just wanted the frame. As you can see I knocked the picture out.....


















Then I went to our local Lowes for some chicken wire and got this mesh stuff which is perfect. I cut it and glued it into the opening from behind. And TADA! Insta earring rack!
















Yeah, I kinda have a lot, but I wear earrings and necklaces every single day. My outfit is not complete until I have found the perfect jewelry and shoes. My necklaces, I just have hung on a simple coat rack next to it. I must have bumped the frame when taking the picture because I see it's crooked. What you also cannot see is that I have about 6-10 necklaces on each hook there. Yeah, I'm addicted!













On a sad note, today would have been my due date had I not miscarried this summer. I have thrown myself into life so completely since then, that I cannot believe that today is the day there should be a third little person in this family. Here is a link to the poem I wrote this summer to her: "To My Little One"
So I am thoughtful today.......
