eBay Friday 13 on Tuesday

Better late than never...

1. This is a photo of my dresser and where I store and display my jewelry. I have found that if I keep my things where they are easily accessible that they will be worn more often. This is one of my goals this year, to wear and enjoy what I have and buy less.

It is really difficult to photograph shiny objects.


I draped the long necklaces and concha belts over the mirror for easy access.

These little silver candy dishes and compotes make excellent jewelry storage.

The coral branch is another good idea for bracelet display.


I found this little silver candy dish on eBay.


I found this one, too. It is good because it provides elevation.

This blue Opaline dish and silver basket is gorgeous.

Another good one for elevation...you may even have one of these already in your china cabinet?


I am in love with blue Opaline. This ashtray is perfect for earrings.

This blue Opaline box is lovely.


2. This photo is from Elle Decor. I like the whole composition.


I found this Venetian mirror on eBay.




Another Venetian mirror...this one has a prettier shape I think.




This Mercury glass jar with lid could be used for the orchid container.



This antique painted chest is not as ornate as the one in the photograph but it will do. I like the soft blue color.


I even found this blue silk drape on eBay. Done. Next...



3. This branch chandelier was in Elle Decor's December 2008 issue. What a statement! I also love the wine rack in the corner. Scroll down, please...

This twig chandelier is in the lovely home of fellow blogger, Lime in the Coconut.

I found this one on eBay.
I did not find this wine rack on eBay, but in the Napa Style catalog.



4. I do not know where I found this photo, maybe Country Living? Anyway, it is neat how they grouped together the vintage bird pictures.

I found a few vintage bird pictures and prints on eBay. This one is my favorite. It features different kinds of pigeons.


Parrots...


Chinese pheasant...


5. I really like this bedroom. The colors are peaceful. The bed looks like it would be easy to make up every day. Nice.

I found this ornate mirror on eBay. It is not as large as the one in the photo but it would do until a larger one was found.


These small, vintage, crystal chandeliers are pretty easy to find. This one is on eBay.

Throw in this vintage Louis Vuitton carry-all and the look is complete.

I hope the rest of your week is warm!

Wow...I am loving your jewelry storage!! Very impressive.

And WHAT amazing finds on ebay! Do you buy many of them?

And laughed when I saw my brancholier...doesnt quite hold a candle to the others, but it was free...and made me feel better about my dead key lime tree. I thought it was just up for the holidays. But can't take it down...

Happy weekend1

Linda - I have bought many things on eBay over the years. The last thing I bought was the pair of zebra head salt and pepper shakers that I featured a few weeks ago Right now I am selling clothes and shoes on eBay - cleaning out the closet. Nancy
