On a typical day, I have jewelry scattered throughout our home. My earrings are laying on the kitchen desk from when I took them off the night before when I got home from work. There's a necklace laying on the bathroom sink and a bracelet next to the laptop in the craft room.
It's like I slowly take off each piece of jewelry as I walk through our home after a long day at work. My shoes are usually at the bottom of the stairs, but I won't go into that right now. It's a pet-peeve of my guy's when he sees my shoes scattered all over our home.
A couple Christmases ago, a very dear friend of mine helped me get my hands on a beautiful decorative tree to hang my jewelry from none other than Brighton and oh how I love it. (I just learned that the Songbird Jewelry Tree is available online at Exposures.)
Each morning and every evening, this is my destination - the jewelry tree. I do not wear a lot of jewelry but I try to wear a little something most of the time. Truthfully, I've always admired how the late Carolyn Bessette Kennedy would dress stylishly classy yet not have a single piece of jewelry on except her wedding ring. I do like the simplified look but feel naked without at least a pair of earrings on.
And I wonder if the jewelry looks better on this tree than on me.
