Confessions of a Saturday Slacker...

This is what's left...

It was full of all of my necklaces... Now it's not.

These are the ones that I don't really care for.

I had most of my necklaces hanging in this door. It was hard to find anything and to get them in and out without making a mess.
These are the ones that I do like.  They get a new place to live.
Now about the Mesquite branch.  Walter trims the big tree out front every year.  I help by saving a branch here and there that I think might come in handy.

I have been hanging on to this branch for a couple of years... Now it has a home.

This is the wall that I have to stare at when I take a bath.  I get bored with what is up there quite easily.  It gets changed often.

This was an easy change.  I took down the poster that was hanging there and grabbed the branch.  I hung it up with a couple of pieces of my round leather cord in two places.  Oops, I still need to trim the cord ends.
Anyway, the only time consuming part was hanging the necklaces in an order that I liked.

The mesquite branches have little nubs and thorns sticking out.  Natural hangers. 

Now I have something pleasing to look at all around.
A bonus was finding these two Oriental ivory carvings... I made them into pendants a couple of years ago. I don't know how old they are or the name of the carver, but I like them.  I wore the monkey yesterday and now that I have a place to hang them I will wear them more often.  They are standing on stones from the gem and mineral show.  The monkey is twined in square copper wire and already has a chain.  I need to go find some antique brass chain for the pig.

Now that I know where they are, they will get worn a lot.

Kota woke me up in the middle of the night and I couldn't get back to sleep.  Organization sometime come from that.  I have plans to turn the hall closet into a pantry today also... Thus the lack of minis.

Sorry about that.

See you tomorrow.

I honestly don't know how you get so much done--minis or otherwise.

And I love the new hanging device for your necklaces, it looks lovely.

I like your necklace arrangement, Casey. I have a collection of necklaces that I hung on the wall of my bedroom! There's just no room for them anywhere else. I also love your Oriental pendants. They are unusual! I have never seen anything like it!

I will be using your branch idea for sure!
