oodles of hours later, here's my first take on organizing heaps of well worn ballet flats and tall boots (shabby chic over the door shoe hanger next to front door for easy access and no dirt tracking - bottom image), tons of sparkly pink and noir scarves on a belt hanger hung over mirror (2nd to bottom image), pinning necklaces and earrings to pink peg board and flower pins to ribbon hung from back of loo door (4th and 5th image). pleased with the process. tons to go. um, you should see my dining room table and floor nearby where the displaced items are currently in waiting.
more to come. yay for organizing!
