antique teacups and plates jewelry drawer





I'm so happy about my new jewelry drawer.

This is a project I admired in the now no longer Blueprint magazine and have wanted to do for ages.

It is simply velvet fabric (or in this case a velvet blend) cut to fit the size of the drawer and the china pieces. It's hard to see here but the fabric is a deep eggplant shade- very pretty.

All of the antique teacups and plates were found over several years but 2 quite recently in a local shop.

I'm also planning at some point to assemble shadowboxes with jewelry that was part of the same story.

It is certainly nice to have one very pretty and organized drawer in my dresser. I love the romance of dressing up and taking care to spend the time choosing the accessories.

i love that middle picture--the close up of the earrings and teacup.

i hang my necklaces on a shelf with knobs below it (i think it's probably made for small coats or something like that), and even though right now i don't wear them very often for fear rhys will rip one off my neck and break it (boy, is he strong!) i love going in there and looking at them. you are right--it makes me feel fancy and want to wear them more often.

What artful displays of your jewelry. I bet that's a huge temptation for little hands...

By the way, I love your new blog header; it's so charming!

Thanks for your sweet comment over on my blog. I'm glad it brought me over here! I'm so sad myself about the closing of Domino. The project you showed here was one of my favorites.
