    Tipped off

    So I just got tipped off to the Umbra Loft collection at target from happy mundane. Needless so say if you know anything about me you know I'm a sucker for flourishes, no matter how contrived. So, obviously there is alot with regards to the umbra collection that I'm interested in. I'll share a few of the goodies and how I plan to utilize them in my ever evolving struggle to get organized.

    This is the Umbra Loft Jewelry Harp in Black, $14.99. Really I don't think I need this but I like it. I have a jewelry tree and a jewelry box. Both overflowing with crap and barely used (I'll share photos one day) When I grabbed this link I was thinking, hey I could put this in my bathroom as a place to store jewelry when I take it off there, but really why encourage my habit of putting jewelry in every which place, I need to get myself into the habit of keeping it in the places I've designated. Jewelry box and jewelry tree. Do it Lee. Do it.

    Umbra Loft Charging Valet Studio - Black $19.99. On the one hand, I need this. It serves a practical purpose, one I'm constantly attempting to overcome while simultaneously not ruining my personal aesthetic. On the other hand I think if I just organized my wires beneath my desk, I wouldn't have as many dramatic charging issues as I currently do. On the hello what are you thinking Lee, end, its not as if I even have surface space for this!! Every inch of flat surface in my room is utilized, and one could argue, when I move I'll have more free space, but until then, exactly where do I expect this to go. No no, one day it will be useful is a mantra I need to avoid!

    Umbra Loft Photo Tray - $19.99. Ok...this I believe I could actually use. I need a tray in both my bathroom and my room. A sort of catchall station. I've had my eyes peeled for something of the bone china variety, but I haven't found anything. Considering the eventual evolution of my bathroom, this could easily fit in there, with maybe some vintage print tucked in if I wanted to be particular. I was also looking at Pier1's floral embossed tray, but I haven't seen it in person yet to decide whether its gaudy or just right.
    Chances are it will be gaudy.
