Organized (and pretty) Make up Brushes

Well, I finally got around to cleaning and displaying my make-up brushes.   Last week, I posted about all the fabulous and beautiful ways to organize your make-up.  My make-up and brushes were hiding away in an old and dirty travel bag under my sink.  There. I said it.  I'm so ashamed.  My own post was the inspiration to doing this.

Wowzers!  I LOVE it!  Can I say that about my own work and not sound haughty? It just came out so much better than I even expected.

I cleaned my make-up brushes this last week- finally.  I'll post about that on Tips and Tricks Tuesday, so stay tuned.  I didn't want to just throw them back in a bag or a drawer, so I decided to "display" them like so.

Here's the best part about my little girly display.  I already had the tray, the glass candle holder, and the beads.  I didn't go out and shop for any of it!  You all know, that's my kind of decorating!  But if you're interested in getting these items, I bought everything at the Dollar Tree a while ago.  I'm pretty sure they still have them.

I set out my favorite and most often used jewelry pieces.  Together, everything looks perfectly matched.  Personally, I love the mix of gold and silver, so I might just keep that gold box thingy next to the tray.  I haven't really decided.  By the way, I got that gold box (it's a Christmas candle holder) for just $3 at Bath and Body during their semi-annual clearance.  I didn't buy lotions or soap.  Just these gold boxes. 

So what do you think?  A little ribbon, some marbles or beads, and a glass candle holder is all you need to bring a little beauty to your life.

Love little decorating and practical moments!
