I Just Had To Leave It Out

I have been on a cleaning spree trying to get the house back in shape after all the holiday stuff.  As I walked into the Master Bedroom to do some (in the corners) cleaning, something caught my eye that I really hadn't paid any attention to.

I love how the morning sun pours into this room and creates such wonderful shadows.  Now the thing that I really noticed is that touch of blue next to the sofa.

I love all the gold and the sparkle, but the blue is what really stopped me.

When I was putting all the Christmas presents away, these packages were layed here.

 I am sure you recognize this color, and yes I have worn those leopard shoes almost every day.

 Tiffany.  Now I don't get something from Tiffany very often, in fact this is only the second time.

 This is the box that was in the bag,

it held my wonderful new wallet that is also in Tiffany blue.  This is such pure luxury that I was tempted to save it for special occasions but my daughter convinced me to use it every day and just enjoy.

I save special boxes and bags, so this needs to find a really special spot to be saved.  Definitely not to be thrown away.

 Remember my Tiffany blue chair I found at Goodwill?  My new bag and box coordinate with it beautifully.


Ok, I know this is shameless, but it's my bedroom and no one sees it but us, so I just left these out.  I feel special every time I see them.  I love to be spoiled and this is definitely a spoil.

The room is totally clean now and I even dusted the bag and box. haha

How about you, are you a keeper of special boxes and bags too?

  1. Haha, Marty - I don't blame you. It is such a pretty blue, plus it's a Tiffany box and bag!!! I do keep nice bags like that. Right now I have a small Victoria's Secret bag in our walk-in closet on one of the shelves displaying decorative pictures and such.

  2. I've never received a Tiffany box or bag but you can bet I'd save it! Your room is beautiful and the bag is special to you....leave it out as long as you like. I think your daughter sounds like a smart girl!

  4. Hi Marty! Oh, flaunt it! I love those pretty blues and I'd keep them out for all to see. Your bedroom is so pretty. Hope your new year is going well. I've taken down the last of my Christmasing yesterday - now has to be cleaned! :) It's never ending.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  5. I do keep special bags from places I've visited and or from a gift. I see no harm in that and I don't blame you for keeping the Tiffany gift box/bag out! Getting something from Tiffany's is definitely a treat!

  8. I don't blame you for wanting to keep out the special box and bag! I have a Tiffany box that I display (it was from a business card holder my hubby received). :) I brought a Lauduree bag back from our Paris trip over Christmas and my daughter kept the box the macarons came in! So pretty!

  10. I would keep it out too!!! I have never gotten something from Tiffany but if I did it would be right by the front door:):):) That blue is so pretty. I wish you could come clean here, the house is a wreck with puttingChristmasd away but I am cleaning as I go. Got the breakfast room all done yesterday and am amazed at how much bigger it looks with that tree GONE!! It feels like the room can breathe again:):)

  14. I totally safe special bags and boxes Marty and would be like you, dusting them off. I could use that bag right about now to color match custom chalk paint for a project I'm working on soon. Your bedroom is gorgeous and of course I was admiring all your vignettes (you know how much I love the way you style them).

  15. I also am a box and bag keeper. Some hold great memories, and others are great for reusing.
    Bedrooms are extremely personal as they are a direct reflection of yourself - so keep your bag and box out as decoration. They add character, and make you happy when you see them.

    Best Wishes

  20. Love your new wallet Marty! I have gotten only two things from Tiffany. large silver beads and a silver bead bracelet to match. Both were work anniversary gifts. Still treasure them even though I do not wear jewelry often any more.

  21. I love to shop in stores that have pretty bags….and i love to reuse them to carry things! My collection got so large that I decoupaged a table top and stool with all of them…and now and starting a new collection!

    As for that wallet - don't save it for special occasions - use it everyday and enjoy it. I am always intrigued by people who "save" things and rarely use them…enjoy it, every time you spend money you will be thrilled to pull out this lovely wallet!

  22. Marty, if I received a Tiffany box I would show it for the world to see! Even if I got an empty box, who would know? Beautiful room! Enjoy!

  24. I also store (okay, hoard) my special bags and boxes. Ok, not just special bags, most shopping bags... They are handy to have too. Use your wallet everyday and enjoy! What's the point of having something so nice collect dust in the closet? Enjoy your pretty wallet and bag!

  26. Ha Ha Marty love the Tiffany bag and box. I say if it makes your feel special and smile then you need to leave it out. That wallet is so pretty. That is a great gift. I did not even know Tiffany made a wallet! I love your leopard shoes ever since you showed the awhile back I got myself a pair too. They are so sassy and fun and the right price being from Target!!!! Love those sweet and cute shoes.

  33. Marty you have such thoughtful children and I agree with your daughter, USE IT NOW!! I too have only recieved a couple of gifts int the pretty Tiffany box and bag and I actually have used them to hold items on my closet shelves so I can still see them, maybe you could do that too. Enjoy my friend, miss you.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yes, I keep special boxes and bags too, Marty! When I see them, they remind me of the gift once again. I was working today to try to get my house back to normal after the holidays and I thought about your room off of your kitchen where you have been a genius at finding spaces for all kinds of decorating items. I am thinking about painting a room Tiffany blue soon.
