Everyone has an itch they need to scratch. For some, it’s shoes. For me, it’s scarves and brooches.
I think am starting to collect brooches like I collect air.
Now I need to find them a place to stay. I was researching online and found a great brooch-specific storage solution.
Option 1: (idea based off of this post from already pretty blog)
1. Take ribbon/belt
2. Pin/hook to wall so its hanging
3. Attach Brooches
I tried it out and it worked relatively well. This way of display will definitely add a youthful character to your bedroom décor. I did realize however that it wasn’t practical for me.
As a mother I have to be careful about little Sou sou (now 18 months mashallah) pulling down things off my wall. She is too tall and too smart for her age. While I could place it higher up, it takes too much time removing and hooking the individual brooches back on the ribbon. I can be indecisive when I am trying to get all fancied up so I needed a method that would allow me to throw them on and remove them quickly without all the hassle.
I found this great buy from jo-ann fabrics. I knew as soon as I saw it I had to have it. It’s a beautiful heavy plastic seafoamy colored tray. I placed a turquoise wash cloth on top to prevent damage and scratching as well as to create more resistance so they didn’t slide everywhere. Then I put all my brooches inside. Now it looks like a big scrumptious collage of flowers and bling.
1. Take large container/plate/display thingy
2. Dump brooches
Aren't they pweety???
If you guys have any ways for storing your brooches, let me know :)
