The other morning I was seated at my vanity in the bathroom blowdrying my hair. I didn't have any reading material within arm's reach, so I began to notice all the stray earrings that were scattered here and there on a tole tray. I'd been looking for an earring tree to organize pierced earrings, but suddenly it dawned on me I had the perfect organizational tool right at my fingertips. I removed all the tubes of lipstick, tweezers, etc. it had been holding, and soon my organizer was ready for its new use.
I started lining them up (even the hoops I wear almost every day slide right over the rim), and I was thrilled at this discovery! The "tea" earrings I wear most often are these silver dangling ones with fish hook wires that are perfect for this type of "organizing tool."
And recently I needed gold earrings and wore these rose and teapot ones, even though they're a tad on the gaudy side. I was happy to see that posts with a "disc" style back can prop on the teacup rim as well. Do you have any interesting uses for orphaned teacups? I'd love to hear them!
