I lit my candle/oil burner and gazed down lovingly at my goodies and thought "that's what I'll blabber on about today" So, here's a small insight into my accessories. I love necklaces, watches, headbands, hair clips etc and I do hoard them, so I try and find inventive ways of keeping them on display. I find that if I hide them away in a drawer I forget about them. I have the luxury of renting a 4 bed house from a family friend at a jolly good price and no skunky housemate anymore so myself and Pete have our own 'Rooms'. His is piled with shite, has a monster desk and 3 huge computer screens for his modelling etc.
Mine has a more feminine touch. I have all the things that don't match the house but I love from my old flat/old bedroom from home. My dream catchers, chimes, James Dean collectibles, my arts and crafts box (I make my own cards. Nothing fancy :) leftover crap from making my wedding stuff), flowers etc. I'm currently going through a cleansing phase where I'm cleaning out all the crap and making it an inspirational area! We have beds in both spare rooms (the other room is the 'cinema room - with sofa and projector - we're not rich - the screen a white window blind and the projectors from Argos!) but no one ever stays over.
Firstly, my in laws (Pete's parents) live across the road and 1 house up so they never 'visit for the weekend'. My friends say my house is toooooo far away (i live in a village about 7miles from everyone else) but its OK for me to get two buses to go their houses once a week. My Mum, Dad and Sister have been here 3 times in the 2 and a half years we've lived here - distance again. The only regular visitors are my Nan and Pap. So no one EVER stays. So, the bed in my room is going in the garage and I'm bringing a wardrobe in. It'll be my dressing room - so excited for this weekend when I can create it! I have some pink paint so I'm tempted to paint a wall!
So, anyway, this is my accessory area :)
|My Perfumes (mostly Avon, I used to be a rep)|
|My Watches - stand is an old mug tree|
|My Beloved Necklaces - to display and prevent tangling, I hung them on pins stuck into a cork notice board. Nifty idea I had there :)|
My computer = My Life!!
Anyway. I thought I'd also take this opportunity to show my earring habit. I keep them in the pink box.
Here's a few sets Ive worn recently. I LOVE the little robots :)
I'm done boring you now :)
