I keep my earrings hung on this funky 'bust' with a chicken-wire skirt. I found it at a boutique in the Highlands area of Denver, but you can find great items like this in many boutiques. This way I can see all of my earrings and make an effort to actually wear them!
Also, if you're a shoe lover like I am, use your shoes as art! These fantastic cowboy boots should not be hidden in the closet - these were made to show off - so I keep them in a book case, mixed in with books and picture frames. My favorite cowboy boot shop is "Boots & Boogie" in Santa Fe, NM. Roy, the owner, is a hoot and some people (including 'A') pay extra money to buy some of Roy's old worn-in boots!
