Display Your Jules

An eclectic collection of display ideas for your jewelry for personal and professional use in my 
"Is this display for sale?" This is the question I get at every show and the answer is always no. No is not a word I like to use! So,  I try to give my customers a list of ideas about how to look in unconventional places for items to use to organize their earrings and such. I love places like TJ Maxx for instance. Their home department is loaded with goodies that can be flipped over or painted to make a great display piece.  Pier 1, Target, Big Lots...the list goes on.

My favorite pieces are a series of wire towers in three heights that I found in the home department of Value City about ten years ago. They all had pineapples on top...oh boy! I got my saw out and voila...no more fruit!  Hit the spray paint aisle in Lowe's and suddenly they are fitting right in with my color scheme. These babies have been painted three times to match my ever changing booth and mall kiosk. Currently, they are a metallic bronze.

The possibilities are endless. If you can't find what you are looking for, you can always make your own.  A wood frame from a yard sale will do. Remove the glass and staple some screening from the local hardware store. Hang it on your wall and all your french wire earrings will slip through the holes. This way you won't have to rummage through the pile on your dresser to look for matching pairs...haha like I do!

Got an idea to share? Leave a comment!

35th Marine Corps Marathon- Here I Come!

Today is the day...I am committed to checking a BIG one off my list. I have registered for the 35th Marine Corps Marathon on October 31.  My friend Suzette and I are going to do this together with lots of help and support from Nick who has done this one before.  Nick and I did the Red Baron Half Marathon in Corning, NY last fall and we had a blast. That was my first half and he did a great job getting me ready for it! 
This one is just a tad bit longer :)          Excited!! and nervous...
