First up: a new jewelry holder! I used a couple pins as inspiration found here and here.
I used a frame I already have that used to hang in my living room, added a cardboard backing that I covered in fabric left over from Ava's flower girl dress. The spools my mom gave me and I knew they were just my style for such a project! Add to that a mirror I already had, and a Dollar Tree tray that we used to hold communion at our wedding which I'm now using to hold my earrings and bracelets.
Next up: another reminder of the start of a lifetime of marriage! A shadow box holding our wedding invitation, ceremony program, his boutonniere, my hair pin and garter. A lifetime of memories began that day and I can't think of something I'd rather see each morning as I rise than a reminder of the first of many, many days and years together. This one did cost a few dollars (for the shadow box), but I got it for 60% off at JoAnns and it will hang in our home for the rest of our lives, I hope.
