Answering a reader’s question today. Some of you asked me questions back in NOVEMBER that I STILL haven’t answered yet. I am so LAME. Is writing in all caps making that clear? How LAME I am!! Anyway – so sorry. I try to answer most questions in the comments, but if it is a question that requires a little more writing/pictures I save it for a blog post. I have a handy little e-mail folder marked “blog questions to post” where I save all of your questions. The problem is that they get filed away in my handy little e-mail folder all nice and organized and then I NEVER ANSWER THEM! I’m going to try to answer a few of them here and there. If you still even care to know the answer to your question! (SO LAME!) **Side note – lame is kind of a weird word, isn’t it?

I’ve shared the way I organize my jewelry before although it’s not a great solution if you have a lot of jewelry to organize.
To be honest I’m not much of a jewelry person. I wear my wedding ring and usually earrings and once in a while I’ll toss on a necklace, but that’s it. This little jewelry box from Target has worked well for me so far. I don’t keep anything I don’t wear so it stays nice and tidy.
I hang my necklaces on some little butterfly hooks in my room (bought this at Marshall’s about five years ago for 6 bucks – don’t ask me how I still remember the price but I do!).
I have more necklaces than I did when this picture was taken (these pictures are over a year old) but they all still fit on the butterfly hooks! This works for now, but I’m planning to re-do my jewelry organization (and my whole bedroom for that matter!) in our next house. So of course I’ve been looking for some other fun jewelry solutions. Here are a few ideas I’ve saved on Pinterest. (Hand over your heart for the mention of that beloved site).

I love this idea too! Buy some fun knobs from Anthro (or anywhere else) and create a beautiful necklace display. I love to use necklaces to double as decor for your room.
Or you could just add hooks to cutlery trays for necklaces! So clever!
I don’t think using small bowls for jewelry is the best solution as far as making the most of your space, but if you have the room I love the look! Such a pretty way to display your jewelry.
Add hooks to a wooden hanger to hold earrings.
And one of my favorites. Bracelets on glass bottles. The box is fun, but this would be so pretty just sitting on a dresser too. So many clever ways to organize and display jewelry! Nothing lame about them. ;)
(Hope that helps Jennie!)
Happy Thursday everyone!
