new jewelry display

At a shop downtown the other day... in a rare moment where I had caffeine in hand and no children in my car.... I went browsing for the first time in a long while.  I love thrift shopping.  Not only have I clothed my three kids and myself in fantastic finds from thrift stores, but I have also decorated my home and found stuff for my artwork there.  So, after staying away for a while, I returned.

 I get totally supercharged, artistically speaking, by looking around at the displays, the vintage ephemera, other people's artwork and broken, rusty stuff.  While I was there, I found this super cool printer's tray.  I've always wanted one to display my rubber stamps in the studio and have not found one at just the right price.  This one is lovely... very sturdy and the right price.  Now, it's home with me.  And, I've decided to use it to display my earrings!

I think it's super cool.  Tell me what you think?  Maybe I will put little price tags on the earrings....   Should I paint it or leave it in it's natural wooden glory?


  1. What a beautiful display piece! I wouldn't paint it.

  2. Me neither...I like the natural color. Seems a good fit with the jewelry. Thanks for the invitation!

  3. I love this! I have one that I bought for my booth to display earrings - I painted the inside which looked really nice, but it would have been fine unpainted. I do like yours. I wound up using mine in my room instead of in the booth at shows - I liked MY jewelry in it too much to share. :-)
