What's in my......

What's in my jewellery boxes?

This is another of my little posts allowing you a fleeting glimpse into my home and the things I like .....

These two lovely wooden boxes nestle happily on my large chest of drawers next to my hairbrushes. They were a present from my husband and are made out of an old beam from a Devon longhouse so are unique and just a little bit quirky! I use them to contain the earrings that are 'in favour' and I wear most at the moment. The rest are relegated to boxes in a drawer on a chest of drawers we have on the landing until I decide I want a change. 





This is the collection I have in the two boxes at the moment - a few rings have managed to sneak in as well I've noticed, including a simple crossed silver band with a tiny diamond that I got when my granny passed away a few years ago.




These earrings were a present from my Father, many years ago, before he got really sick . He wouldn't remember now.  They will always mean a lot to me.




I love these little pearl earrings and was rather pleased to find a necklace that goes so well with them for less than £20. These get worn quite a lot!



These were chosen for me by my daughter for my birthday - I actually love the childish nature of them!




My wedding earrings from Sassi Holfords - not kept in my wooden boxes, but worth a mention. Need I say more. Love!



What are you favourite style of earrings at the moment?

  1. I always wear small diamond studs but sometimes push the boat out if I'm out for the evening and go for something dangly! Love the boxes by the way x

  5. I love these kinds of blogs - they appeal to my nosy streak! lol! You've a lovely selection of earrings...but this is where I admit to not wearing earrings any more. I had my ears pierced at age 7 and wore them endlessly until I was about 30 but since, I've only ever worn a sparkly pair for one formal I went to about 6 years ago. I love them on other people though....so maybe I just need to go buy some! Hope you're having a good weekend, Avril x

  6. Hi Applebypie! I just joined your blog! I like the boxes! Simple can be so beautiful! And the earrings your father has given you are really nice. Personally, I like dangling earrings, size doesn't matter, it depends on the mood and the clothes I'm wearing!
