Sometimes the best ideas come to you as a surprise via the blog posts of other people. Suger from Suger Coat It wrote a post called – The triumphant return of the sneaker – and I commented – This inspires me to start a weekly feature about sneakers. I have so many pairs!
But then I thought, why limit it to one kind of shoe? Why not have a weekly shoe post? Each pair of shoes will receive a good cleaning in preparation for being posted – and the other half is Building Me A Photography Box especially for this project.
But before I begin this new blog feature – which will start on Sunday next week, I want to show you where my shoes live – and invite you to join me and show the world where your shoes live.
I will like to take you inside my Accessory Room.
Before you even open the door, there is a Scarf Bar –
This is a simple thing to create – some over the door hooks and you too can have a scarf bar. I got mine from Aldi but a lot of places stock over the door hooks. Some of the hooks are holding more than one scarf which is super handy.
If you don’t have a lot of room but you do have a lot of scarves, this is a simple yet great way to store them, all you need is a door and some over the door hooks.
The door to this room is usually left open because this is also Paper Goods From Costco Nirvana. I am not running out of toilet paper, paper towel, or tissues anytime soon. And to this I say, Jesse Pinkman Style, YEAH BITCH, COSTCO! because if there is one thing I hate, it is running out of essentials like that. ;)
On the back of the door there is a Jewellery Organiser which also holds spare phone cases. Spot the Swarovski one for my old iPhone there? It is sparkly. :) I also have a Swarovski one for the present phone.
Inside the room there is a Jewellery Cupboard – which also doubles as a Handbag Storage Unit, and holder of the Super Holographic Duct Tape. Yes, I like it when things have more than one use. It is extra useful! And here is a sneak peek inside.
And now we arrive at the Shoe Cupboard. It is usually closed, to keep Dust away from The Shoes.
The big green bag on the outside is a Kipling backpack – I have a matching suitcase which also resides in the Accessory room.
And now, back to the shoes. Let us open the Shoe Cupboard.
Before we get an overview of the shoes, I will take out the Handbags, which have found a home in between two shoe racks.
That is a lot of shoes. Many of which do not get worn as often as I would like.
Rack one – there is no order in which they are stored, it is just wherever they fit they ended up.
And there are still some shoes in Other Places because they did not fit in this cupboard –
And, a bag’o’shoes which I am contemplating giving away.
There are enough shoes for a full year of shoe posts, so this will become a weekly feature and I invite other bloggers to join in as well. Everyone is welcome to join in.
