Dirty little secret!

This is a little...okay...ALOT embarrassing. See this nice little jewelry box.

It houses a dirty little secret. It sits there all nice and neat until...KABOOM!
I've been meaning to get to this for a while now...(A long, long, long, while.)
I was having trouble finding pairs of earring and even knowing what I had, I know you can't imagine why.
I dumped it out on the floor.
Then I put back everything that I would use and made a pile to throw away. Things that were broke, without their mate or from the eighties. (Dang, should have kept the eighties stuff, its back in, right.)

Here is my throw away pile.
WHOA, WAIT JUST A MINUTE. Go back and look in the throw away pile and tell me if you see this.
My husbands wedding ring!
Ya, it was in the throw away pile, and do you want to know how close it came to the garbage can? I picked it all up in a Walmart sack and was about to chuck it in the trash when a little voice in my head said "Why don't you check through that stuff again?" I did and I am so glad I did. Sheeesh! That was close!
Please tell me there is someone else out there that has a jewelry box like mine, that needs a little attention?

  1. oh my. yes. my jewelry is in various places because I've never found a good way to organize it. Earrings are on an "earring tree" as well as in a pile on the bathroom counter....then there's the messy jewelry box full of a bunch of stuff...then there's the collection of necklaces etc hanging on the wall - yeesh

  2. WoW! That was a close call. I know that had to take some time to get that all organized but I'm sure it feels good to have that checked off your to~do list!

  3. Whew! That was a close one. Yes you should have kept that 80's stuff! I'm just waiting for alternating, matching socks with L.A. Gear shoes to come back in.

  4. Just went through mine, it was awful. I think I'm a hoarder of all things! I need an intervention! So glad you listened to your little voice!
