Teacups & Trinkets

Whilst having a bit of a clear/sort out of all my jewellery recently, I started to wonder what I could use to display my pieces. I have a lot of jewellery, and was getting a bit sick of all the boxes I had laying around.

Then I remembered the teacup candle I had bought from The Gift Gallery. I'd used it and cleaned it out and it was just sat on my window sill. So I filled the cup with my rings and put some pendants around the saucer.

I really like it! I have this other teacup candle, which I got from the lime garden [gorgeous shop!] - I expect I'll use it for the same kinda thing when I'm done with the candle!

  5. Such a good idea, the perfect combination - jewels in a tea cup! I've seen a few girls do a DIY candle tea cup and it's always got me in the mood to try it out myself! May be my next move!

  6. I love this idea of storing your accesories ! :) I keep them all in an ornamented plate because it's easier to see them all*. Lovely post and blog !

    *well, not really because it's too messy
