how beautifully serendipitous that just three days after seeing this lovely photo on country living,
I in fact stumbled upon on old metal rake of my own! Remembering this picture, I snatched it up for a mere $3 from a local antique store. Here's my version:
If you know me at all, you know I've never been much of a jewelry-wearer. I almost never change my earrings. I honestly think part of the reason is because when my jewelry is out of sight, it's out of mind. Plus, it's all been shoved in my jewelry box and tends to get tangled and that's just annoying.
Hopefully, its new home on the back of my closet door will remind me to give it its fair share of wear. (how's that for rhyming?!)
there's just something about shiny, pretty things combined with rusty, old things that gets me every time.
oh, to be free from tangled necklaces! the liberty! the release!
