Home Ec Post - Chez Moi, Part Deux

As promised, here is the follow up to this post featuring a little peek into my home!

I love to repurpose items.  Curtain rods as jewelery displays, scarf holders and headband racks.  Fabric stretched into embroidery hoops to display earrings and brooches.  Cheese graters as earring displays.  Your only limit is your imagination!

Part of my hat collection..
..more hats..
...umm, yeah.  Hats.
Hat forms, so I can make my own hats!
Bird under glass
I stretched fabric across the back of this frame and added a ribbon so I can change out the pictures with the seasons.
My Phonograph <3
My typewriter (on which I plan to write the great american novel..)
My phone (and to be honest, the only reason I still have a landline ;)
Embroidery hoop + Fabric = A great way to display earrings..
..or brooches!
Curtain rod + Scrap of rug rolled into a tube makes a great headband display.
Curtain rods also work as scarf displays..or..
..with curtain hooks to display necklaces
Another easy earring display, frame with mosquito netting stretched across the back..
..or an old cheese grater!
That's it!  Thanks for taking a tour of my home with me :)  If you'd like to take a peek at some of my inspiration, you can go to my "for the home" pinterest board here.

Hugs and Smooches,


  1. My lovely Mother is working on making me a place to display all my broches using the same method but she is going to do some quilt batting and a nice piece of velvet I can't wait to hand it up and show all my pretties.

    1. Ooohhh, I love velvet. That sounds beautiful!

  2. Wow! What an amazing collection. It's fun peaking into other people's closets~


Thank you for your comment! I read every one of them and they make my day :) Please do not post as anonymous (sadly, I have had issues with spammers lately :( Have a beautiful day!
