One of my goals last year was to wear jewelry more often. This was greatly helped by a few gifts I received for my birthday: my MIL chose a a necklace and earrings from a local consignment shop (woohoo to that kind of shopping) and my sweet friend chose several pieces from her own collection in my favorite colors. Ever since September, I have been looking for one of those jewelry stands that you can hang many items from but none of them were just right. Until Belle.

I like her because she is girly without being too ornate compared to others of her type. I don't know why I named her Belle, but it just seemed to fit. Of course, now I hate to "clutter her up" with jewelry but I'll get over that.

P.S. A very heartfelt thank you to everyone who has voted for me in The Poppies!
