Samantha asked me last night if today would be hard for me. “Without my Valentine?” I asked… this was what she was worried about.
Chuck was not that big fan of using holidays for retail indulgence. Don’t even get me started about the Christmas battles we waged. Valentines he participated more out of a sense of obligation than enthusiasm. Chuck's brother reminded me that what actually filled my husband's heart on
Valentines Day was that pitchers and catchers reported to camp. At best, one Valentines Day he brought home some cheesy heart shaped earrings purchased at Fred Meyers at the last minute. At worst, probably our first Valentine’s Day together shortly after we became engaged, when he got his one true love, his newly betrothed: NOTHING. No card, no flowers, no dinner. He never did live that down.

I have looking for a better way to store some of my creations and costume bling. I found a clearance priced fireplace screen at Lowes, it worked really well.
I added some drawer pulls and nobs for bracelets and necklaces. Just screwed them in. I need to replace the screws that came with the cabinet hardware with shorter ones… but other than that so far this has been a nice solution, that holds a ton.
Much cheaper that the commercially available jewelry display solutions.
