The Jewellery Heist : Bracelet Edition

Morning!


Anyone that knows me well, know that I have a mac daddy surplus of costume jewellery and accessories, (they also know I will hold a fork to the neck if any of it goes missing) and because one of my main TORMENTS is clutter, it was time for a sort out.

Before:


After:




You can't really see but everything is organised and bound with ribbon according to its colour palate as I find that I usually select accessories by how it either pops or clashes with my outfit. The whole thing can now slide easily under my bed so I can finally free up my dressing table for all the amazing floral arrangements my romantic husband INSISTS on buying me. *coughcough*.


What I used:
♥ 1960's suitcase - vintage
♥ "Oust 2 in 1" to get the Granpa smell out of it - my own
♥ Pretty floral fabric to line the bottom - vintage
♥ A collection of small plates, saucers, platters to sit the bracelts on - my own
♥ Ribbon to bind the bracelets together - my own
♥ Pages from an old hymn book, various clippings, postcards, stamps and pictures to stick to the inner lid - my own

Total = $10
KA-CHING!

Time for a hootenanny.

    The majority of it is from my mama cause she lives in aussie so sends me heaps of stuff to make her feel better and to make me feel loved. WIN!
