Like many others, I’ve been bitten by the “new year, fresh start” bug and have been spending some time re-organizing my apartment. I came across a beloved but rarely-used fabric purse in my closet and decided to pin my (mostly handmade) brooch collection to it. Now I can grab what I need without digging through a jewelry box, and hanging it on my bedroom wall means I can enjoy these little works of art 24-7. Link.
