What I am addicted to collecting...

Lately I've been reading a lot of posts about people's addictions/collections/etc. Well I decided to share one of mine. I am a typical female, in some aspects anyway, I love jewelry. Here are some pictures to back me up:



I love having different necklaces and earrings to wear with different outfits. I guess I should include my scarf collection in the "accessory" category, but I think you can use your imagination...let's just say I have lots and lots and lots. In fact, I definitely have more necklaces and scarves than shoes. If I have to choose between new shoes and a new necklace, guess which one wins, every single time?


I came up with this way of organizing my necklaces after I got tired of finding them broken or tangled in my "jewelry bag". I tacked little nails in the wall inside my linen closet in our master bedroom. This way they are all laid out for me to look at each morning when I get dressed, no hunting, untangling or searching.  I am only left to decide what I feel like wearing!


How about you? What are your "addictions" or what do you like to collect?

I like your taste in jewelry. I am totally defunct in the accessory department, myself. I wear stud earrings and my wedding ring and that's about it. I always ask my sister for help on what jewelry to wear.

I am almost 100% blingless. Except for a necklace with a shark's tooth on it that I got from a friend in Florida.

The only collection I have is of cheap stuff I pick up anytime I visit someplace. Like a little plastic Washington Memorial, a plastic St. Louis Arch and stuff like that.

I'm addicted to Hallmark Ornaments. I like jewelry, but I'm kinda picky about it, so I don't have much. Daily, I wear 10 earrings (I have 12 holes), a watch, my engagement ring and wedding band and my mother's engagement ring. If I remember, I'll put on one of my 4 or so necklaces. LOL. I love your collection!

Love these necklaces. Now I know who to hit up for a loan.

My obsession, um, I mean, collection, is vintage dresses. I have about 70 (last time I counted) and I wear them all.
