Trash to Treasure --- It’s Okay To Leave Your Jewelry Laying Around

Yesterday I hit a few yard sales and happily found some great vintage jewelry.  I have quite a collection already…. but always happy to find pieces to repurpose with my jewelry design.  Today I am sharing a trash to treasure of what to do with old fashioned clip on earring…. see the bottom of this post for my idea!


This is our master bathroom done in soft pastels and lilac walls….


I have scattered some vintage pins here and there for a touch of sparkle.



I often wear these things, but why do they have to stay in a box… I’d rather enjoy them each day.


The sage green bracelet is one I made last week.  I have been in a vintage mood with my jewelry.


But what I wanted to show you is my light shade….


I found a bag of old jewelry pieces for $3.00 yesterday containing a ton of clip-on earrings….


So I decided to add some interest to my little shade by clipping them around the top!


No glue or anything, so if I tire of this, I can just remove them and use them elsewhere.


But for now I am really happy with the effect!
Thanks for stopping by….Brooke
