Decor for the Seriously Lazy

Hello again. I am happy that our area is finally experiencing temperatures below 80 degrees and ridiculous heat that's plagued us for way too long. Yesterday we even got rain. While stuck inside I worked on possibly the lamest excuse for a project in the history of the world. In the spirit of helping anyone else as lazy as myself, here is the full description of how it went:

I took a plain red throw pillow and combined it with a many years collection of holiday pins and came up with this:

I thought this would be a cute way to show off many years of gifts and thrift shop finds from over the decades. There is an assortment of cat-related pins and other typical signs of the season, snowmen, reindeer, candy canes and more. On the upper right is a single earring whose mate's loss I'm still mourning. The pair  looked like old-fashioned ribbon candy and garnered me endless compliments until one was lost, to my great disgust. Still, the hope of finding another like it means I've kept it for several years, so it can join the pins in the display on the pillow.

Do you have a predominance of one type of jewelry? I seldom wear necklaces or bracelets, and favor pins instead. I like the way my accumulation is visible to enjoy, as well as easy to choose one to wear when I go out. Do you have holiday accessories you use to add a little extra to your outfits this time of year? 

Have a wonderful week!

Cute idea! I wish I didn't already have your Christmas gift, because I would get you some more ribbon candy earrings! (Check on Etsy.)
