accessory organization

i love to be organized, although its definitely not my greatest strength!  my favorite type of organization is when everything is out in the open, rather than boxed up and put in a drawer.  if it is boxed up, those boxes better be pretty!  now, i don’t mean this about everything – i don’t want my organized socks out on display, but accessories?  now thats something i like to look at!

accessory organization

not only are accessories pretty to look at, but it really is so much easier to make decisions about what to wear when i can see everything out in the open with one look.  this is my set up in my bedroom, just across from my bed.  i think its a pretty view ;)

accessory organization

all of my necklaces hang here.  every one of them.  i feel bare without a necklace each day.

this little ceramic bowl is overflowing with all my flower pins.  i don’t wear them all that often, but i do love to look at them.

the antlers of this deer head fit my little ring collection perfectly!

bracelets are really hard to organize and still access easily, but these vintage glass bottles make it pretty easy.

this little egg dish holds my earrings and charm bracelets.

i have a bit of a scarf obsession.  i have 3 big ol’ iron hooks behind my door that i keep them all hung on.   i also have a few headbands hung on the far left hook.

other accessories?  i have my hats, purses and belts hung up in my closet, but they’re just not as fun to look at!

how do you organize your accessories?  do you like them out on display, or tucked away neatly?  i’d love for you to share your ideas!

 

house tour – downstairs {nicole’s home… again}

about 10 years ago, our good friends ricky & nicole moved up to bend, oregon.  we do our best to visit once or twice a year.  we LOVE bend!  it is a beautiful town and has so much to offer!  plus their four kids and our 3 call each other cousins and love to get together.

our friends have built several homes in bend (i’ve blogged about a couple) as ricky is a builder (lucky nicole!).  each one has been amazing, but i have to say, this one is by far my favorite!

there are tons of pictures below, and i think they don’t really need much explanation, so i’ll let the pictures do most of the talking!  by the way, since this is not my home, and nicole is not a blogger, i won’t really be able to provide you with sources – sorry!
