Weekend Recap: Lion & Tigers & Jewels!

  1. annabelvita says:

    I moved house (moved in with my boyfriend!), unpacked 97.5 per cent of my clothes and baked a ginger cake.
    Love the drawer organisation idea – might try that. Does it move much when you open and close? (Have you fixed them in in any way?)

  2. Scientific Housewife says:

    Great idea, it looks so organized now!

  3. Ms. Bright says:

    Bass Pro Shop?? It's kinda neat, huh?

    And I love the organization! I did something similar with mine about a month ago…I love being able to see what I have. Plus, it's fun to look at…like going shopping in your own house!

  4. A Flair for Vintage Decor says:

    Love how organized it is…doesn't it feel so much better to have it all in place! Take care, Caroline

  5. Just Like Any Other Girl, Only More So says:

    I love the white dishes even better than the Martha china!! Such a good idea! Love me some Christmas tree shop too!

  6. L.Duncan@Home23DuncanBoys says:

    OMG, what a great idea! I'm so going to copy you! what did I scratch off my list? Writing my blog posts for the week! I've been MIA for about 2 weeks now!

  7. Jenny says:

    I love this idea and I've been looking for a way to store and organize my jewelry! Can't wait to pick up some of these dishes and try it out!

  8. Katie @ Noodle and Boof says:

    I have bowls from Anthro atop my vanity. Love it!

  9. Sweet Nothings says:

    that looks FABULOUS. god I miss christmas tree shoppes.

  10. Christine says:

    I've been meaning to do the Martha style for a while now too! But yours looks so organized I think I may like your way better! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Babs Blog says:

    This turned out lovely! I always think that when something is beautiful AND organized there is more incentive to keep things organized long-term. You have inspired me to conquer the unruly cabinets in my bathroom now! 🙂
    Glad you had a great weekend!

  12. Alcira Molina-Ali says:

    Gorgeous drawer 'do.
    Now you'll have all your accessories action-ready and right at hand ; )


  13. Mrs. Chic says:

    looks so cute love the little dishes in your drawer perfect way to see all your earings etc in such a pretty way!

  14. Debbie says:

    I like your version better than Martha's! The focus is on your jewelry, not the cups. And I bet it's more functional

  15. Laurie Jones says:

    I actually like the white dishes instead of the tea cups, the jewelry seems like its the showcase and doesn't compete with the pretty patterns of the teacup! You made me put on my list go to the Christmas Shoppe this week, I keep meaning to go there! I finished 2 side tables this weekend http://housetoyourhome.com/2010/10/25/another-design-rule-to-follow-never-take-yourself-too-seriously/. Hope you have a great week!

  16. Kathysue says:

    You are inspiring me. I just got back from a three week vacation and upon trying to put away things I see I really need to purge and clean out. This little project is inspiring me!!! Looks wonderful,Kathysue

  17. Nicole says:

    Looks Beautiful! I miss Christmas tree shops!!! We used to be in Boston and are now in Cali…

  18. Brooke @ Blueprint Bliss says:

    That Martha Stewart image is one of my favorites. And your drawer looks great. I might have to do that one day!

  19. Amy R. says:

    Thanks for posting such an affordable and doable drawer organization tip. I would like to have something like this in my closet. Nice rack btw…I mean the one holding your cooler:)

  20. christine {bijouandboheme} says:

    Your jewelery drawer looks amazing!The white really lets the colours of the jewels pop- so pretty! I am definitely going to keep this in the inpsiration pile for when/if I ever get that organzied:)
    I accomplished one of my to-dos this weekend as well, which feels great. After years of not knowing what to use for curtains in my master, I finally got down to it and created a shear wall of curtains, which covers 21' of wallspace-I posted pictures of it on my blog and am quite happy with it- only took two days:( but worth it in the end.

  21. Michaela says:

    What a cute project. I agree, they make your jewelry pop! This weekend I went to a fun event for my interior design department at Seattle Pacific University. We went to an amazing architectural firm in down town Seattle and networked with other designers. Then I went shopping at Nordstrom…always fun!! (:

  22. Centsational Girl says:

    What a fun weekend! And I LOVE your vanity drawer, aren't you just in love every time you open it? So so pretty, and organized too!

  23. julie says:

    what a fabulous organizational idea!! thanks for sharing!

  24. Mackenzie {Design Darling} says:

    I love this! Might have to borrow the idea 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration!

  25. Emily A. Clark says:

    LOVE thi idea! My vanity looks just like your before pic. I have so many necklaces jumbled up together that I just wear the same thing all the time. I'm going to copy this idea.

  26. Anonymous says:

    I love the white dish jewelry drawer! Great idea.

  27. Kate {domestikatedlife} says:

    Love your jewelry organization!

    I just turned an old tool box into a jewelry armoire and now it's so fun getting ready in the morning with everything organized in nice drawers.

  28. Lissa @ After Adornment says:

    I finally found my office drapery fabric!!!!! Yeah!!!
    I love that idea for jewlery storage….mine is everywhere!

  29. Cristin says:

    great way to organize!!! love it.


  30. modern jane says:

    I think that drawer looks awesome! I have always loved the martha idea but they look great in the white! I just may have to be a copycat:)

  31. Bellwether says:

    Hi! I've been quietly "lurking" for ages now but I had to comment after this post – I LOVE this project! I like your version so much better than Martha's (and I do love me some Martha) because (as a number of other commenters have already said) it DOES showcase the jewelry better than a mish-mash of cups. Plus, it somehow reminds me of a fancy boutique I've been to (not sure exactly which one) where they display the jewelry like this – talk about shopping your own closet every time you get dressed! what fun!

  32. Evie says:

    I have that same M. Stew picture/article bookmarked too! Like how you got the look for less!

  33. Lindsey says:

    i love the white bowl idea. i'm gonna try that, ur jewelry looks so good. like its in its own little boutique.

  34. Sarah says:

    what a cleaver idea. my vanity needs this makeover.

  35. Erica @ Erica's Inspirations says:

    Brilliant idea! I LOVE it!! It makes each piece look so beautiful.
    I finally got around to cleaning out my pantry this weekend…I threw a way 2 trash bags of expired food…now it looks empty 🙂

  36. Erica @ Erica's Inspirations says:

    Oh…if you don't mind, I would like to share this brilliant idea of yours on my blog! 🙂

  37. Loretta Fontaine (APPLESandRUBIES) says:

    Camila– Love this idea! So simple and looks just stunning!

    This weekend we boarded up the hole in the living wall where we knocked down our fireplace. Now just waiting for the contractor to come and make a bigger hole!

  38. Bailey@ peppermintbliss says:

    Oh you have no idea. Pete and I took every last dish and plate and applience out of our butlers pantry and reorganized replete with label maker action…It was very old and very married and honestly pretty lovely!

  39. simplygrove says:

    I LOVE this idea!!!!! I want to do it now!

get inspired with our own home tour


My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
