I have found a new love. Finding old things, or even new things and creating something just for us. I love looking around the house at all the little things that I have created.
I have been addicted to Pinterest lately. Don't know what it is? Oh my... you have to go and check it out.

Anyway. I have seen a few examples of a "Jewellery Station", and immediately, I knew I had to have one. My growing collection of earrings and rings had no home. I had most of them hung on a glass vase, and the rest throw into the bottom of a small jewellery box.
I went on the hunt for an old window frame. I visited 3 scrap yards in our area, but no luck. So, I had a quick look ebay.
I found, and purchased one right around the corner from my Mother-in-laws house. Best bit. It was a STEAL!
So Saturday, we packed up the kids and headed for a dinner at the in-laws. Of course, killing two birds and passing by the seller to pick up my window frame.
Yesterday, I headed to my all time favourite shop, Bunnings, and bought some chicken wire, nails and a handle. Then headed to spotlight to choose my fabric.
What do you think?
While at Bunnings, we stopped in Brett's favourite shop. Typo!!! I fell in love with their letters (last time I was there, they only came in one white font). I knew EXACTLY where I was going to put them.
We have a section in our TV cabinet where the DVD player etc are supposed to go. We have NEVER used it for that - with babies, we quickly learnt that if you don't want little fingers touching the player, then you put the electronics behind locked doors. So this little space has housed a small speaker for the past 8 years.
I LOVE the letters in there. And if little fingers push them over, I can just put them back (unlike the blue ray player that will be destroyed by little fingers!)
What have you made for your house? I want to make another smaller jewellery station for the girls room. I am thinking a round frame painted white!? Need to keep searching for something perfect.
