Some of my organized drawers


















I got this lovely cabinet last year and have stuffed the drawers with all my crazy goodies. Some of the drawers house my favorite stashes of color coordinated fabrics and embellishments. Above are my opulent aquas and my dreamy valentine pinks and reds. I just dyed some red and pink velvet that will go wonderfully with the Valentine stash. I've already blogged about the rich greys and gorgeous golds that occupy a space in this wonderful cabinet.

Gerry K. actually found the cabinet on Craigslist (thanks Gerry!) and posted the link on CQI. I love anything with drawers and especially if it is made of wood and vintage. When I saw this, I knew I had to have it. I called the owner who said he had just hauled it down to an estate salesman and I had to wait two whole days to find out if it would be mine or not! The cabinet belonged to a wonderful lady who kept all her sewing paraphernalia on one side and her collection of costume jewelry on the other side. Her Granddaughter sold it to me and shared all her memories of going to grandma's and playing dressup with the jewelry. I love it!

Connie, what a wonderful chest...can you remember exactly what is in which drawer yet....I would have to label them I am afraid which would spoil the outer look of the chest.

Wow, that chest is even lovelier than I remember it! You are one lucky lady. And your color-coordinated stash is beautiful. Makes me want to reorganize my bling and stuff by color.... :-) Hugs, Cathy
