The Tale of Two Jewelry Chests

Welcome to Pink Saturday. If you like all things PINK, head on over to Beverly's and check out all the PINK may take a few days to wander through all the blogs on the list...but, it's worth it, I promise!!

I really REALLY wanted a jewelry chest and I searched for the perfect one. I just couldn't find one that I both liked and could afford. Then I came across this one....

from Walmart, and I think it was only $40!! I really wanted one that had more organization, but hey...the price was right!

And, it's PINK inside!!

Right after I got it, I found the PERFECT one (from QVC). What is a girl to do? I simply had to have them both!! Don't let the simple exterior fool has incredible organization.

Here is my pet peeve. Who designs these things? ALL of these chests open from the top. Of course we would want to decorate the top...but you can't....because you must open the top.

Why do they do it this way????

Ta Da!! Look at all the little compartments...

Isn't that CRAZY GOOD?

Each one of those earring holders slide right out, and all of the drawers have little spaces for small things....

like JEWELRY!!!

Here is something PINK!

And, yet another PINK necklace...

With earrings to match!

When I was little I used to love to go through my Mom's jewelry box. I knew everything in there by heart. I would ask her to tell me about every item, again and I loved those stories!!

I wish I could rummage through YOUR jewelry box. There are SURE to be some interesting things in there!

This is one such little cubby of mine. It has a pin that was my Grandma's, a teeny pic of my firstborn, my Mother's hospital bracelet from when I was born, a bracelet made by my granddaughter and my first watch that I got when I was 10....Alice In Wonderland...probably the most excited I can ever remember on a birthday.

Seems like it takes so much more to excite a kid these days, doesn't it??!!

I see some more PINK.....a vintage pin:

And, I have saved the BEST for last. I needed some light to see, and this precious little chandelier was just the solution.

Lot's of cute little PINK and blue pretties!

Happy Pink Saturday to you!!

  17. Oh my and now you have two...lucky you. They are so nice to have because with out them you can never find what your looking for. Your as bad as me for having so much jewelry. I dont any more, but use to always wear clip on errings and still have them all. My twin 7 year old grandchildren just love going threw all the jewelry and to play dress up with me. They take as many pieces as they can and decorate my whole body at once with them.

    Have a great week and see ya agian soon.

  18. Love the jewelry chests! The one from QVC is fab!!! I might have to think of finding a place for another. The chandelier is wonderful! Happy pinkness.

  19. Oh wow that QVC jewelry chest is something else! What great storage! The Wal Mart one is great too at such a good price. I don't own enough jewelry to fill even one of them but I'd be encouraged to organize what I do have if I had a nice chest like either one.

    Happy Pink!

    Hugs, Pat

  26. Stephanie, Stop over at my blog. You won my giveaway. Let me know what color pincushion or cupcake you would like!

  27. I have one of those boxes and you are so right you can't put a thing on the top..great PINK Saturday...hugs and smiles Gloria

  28. Well, first, thanks for taking us through your jewelry chest! Lovely things -- and you have two! I need one desperately but you're right -- who DOES design those things?

    Happy PS!

  29. I have a tall, 5 drawer, full-sized solid oak chest of drawers that I bought about 10 years ago. Like your jewelry boxes, it also opens from the top, where there's a shallow compartment to hold jewelry or other small items. I had forgotten that the top opens until just now, when I read your note ... I have NO idea what's inside that top compartment right now, as it hasn't been opened for years. There's a lamp on top, and a vignette of books and flowers, and a small china bowl with a collection of loose buttons and what-nots, and probably some stray items that landed there who-knows-when and never got put away. And NOW, I'm going to have to take all that stuff off the top to find out what's inside, if anything. Just want to be sure you know that *this is all YOUR fault* ... and that if I find a fortune or a winning lottery ticket, you'll get a nice reward for making me clean off the top of the dresser :o)



  30. Happy Pink Saturday, Stephanie. I am sorry that I am late getting to this post, but I am trying to catch up.

    Wow! I am amazed at all of those perfect little sections. What a great piece.

  31. Love it all.
    But I might just have to borrow your pink toe nails song for my post. Hope you don't mind but it's so darn cute.
