Some things have changed these days, with being a mom and really wanting to just be comfortable every day. I now only ever wear one pair of earrings and I hardly ever wear rings, except for special occasions. My wedding and engagement rings don't even fit, so they have sat in a jewelry box for a couple of years now. And thanks to pregnancy, I don't have that belly button ring anymore. I don't miss it though, I can admit now.
I still love layering necklaces and wearing vintage costume jewelry along with new statement pieces I find from time to time. I am always drawn to the jewelry department in stores, and love to scour the counters at antique and thrift stores for new necklaces. I usually always leave with something.
Recently, Josh and I switched rooms with our two little ones to give them more space to play and spread out their belongings. We live in a small two bedroom home (click here to read more about it if you are new here - although I haven't updated that page in over a year so it's changed a lot since those posts!). A new house isn't on the horizon just yet, so we are trying to make this one work as best we can. The toys and clutter in the kids' room was driving me crazy and they never really had anywhere to play because almost every surface was covered with toys and stuffed animals.
A couple of weekends ago, I finally took the plunge and started the bedroom switch. I had been wanting to do this for a couple of years! It felt so good to finally get it done. Thankfully, the transition went over without a hitch. The kids love their "new" big room, and I love our cozy, small one.
I found the cutest vintage ceramic tray at a thrift store and it was mom who inspired me to buy it to display jewelry. Perfection! It's my favorite color and style and looks great holding bracelets and cocktail ring.

Of course...having my jewelry displayed like this makes it up for grabs for little hands who also love jewelry...
When this room was just Hazel's, I had an antique French mirror in the entrance with a cast iron bird rack below. We will eventually be taking these things out when we paint the room, but for now I am using it to hold necklaces.
(But then that also means this might happen. If you follow me on IG you may have already seen that little number :) These two kids always keep me amused.)
Till next time...
