You can blame it on my Grandma, but I love LOVE LOVE jewelry! It's the one accessory I could never live without and can't get rid of. I am not a pack rat at all. Once a month I try to get clothes ready to sell to Plato's, I clean out my bathroom and see what I can give away as far as lotions, soaps, and gifts go, I HATE clutter! But try to get me to get rid of ANY of my jewelry and you better watch out because you're in for a fight.
So.... you KNOW I don't wear all of it. Some of it is outdated, some is from my Grandma and I don't wear it in fear of losing it, and I'll admit that a lot of it I don't even know or remember that I have it so it never gets worn.
The point of all this is that I just found, on Better homes and gardens, an entire slideshow on ways to incorporate your jewelry into home accessories. Check out some of these super cute ideas!
