My Jewellery Depository

I thought I would show you where much of my preloved jewellery resides. We live in a modern home but it is furnished with a mixture of antique and modern furniture because I love to mix new and old. This is part of the dressing table in our bedroom and, as you can see, it is drowning in my bargains. Necklaces hang from anything possible while my earrings and rings are tucked neatly into the brown suede leather box you can see. My wide cuffs are spread over the dressing table top because I can’t think of any other way to store them and still be able to see them easily.

Talking of preloved objects, my dressing table is very special. When I was sixteen, I saw it in an antique shop and fell deeply in love. I emptied my bank account to buy it with my mother’s blessing. She figured it was better to spend my money on an antique than on clothes and nights on the town. It is made up of seven different native New Zealand woods and I would never part with it. It does the job of displaying my jewellery beautifully though it is rather hard to dust.

My blog, Strands of My Life, focuses on the low FODMAP diet and features videos, recipes and articles on irritable bowel syndrome. My mission in life is to help those who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome to implement the low Fodmap diet.
