the rice post.

this post tonight is about rice.
yes, you heard that right.. rice.
we don't eat alot of rice in this household..
mostly because i just can't get it to come out nice and fluffy like it's suppose to.
i also do not have the patience to let it cook for 20 minutes so it
usually ends up over-cooked or under-cooked.
i've found a good little use for that left-over bag of white rice
that sadly sits in the back of my pantry waiting to be used.
in a quick spurt of energy i decided to finally organize my rings one day.
i have one of those little jewelry hanging organizers in my closet but
let me just be real with you.. i prefer to just place my jewelry on the bathroom counter top.
husband doesn't like it so very much but then again he really doesn't see the point in having
more then one ring 
so i have to take his opinion with a big pinch of salt.
now you're asking what rice has to do with ring organization.
well, feast your eyes on my new little rice-ring-keeper-holder {just made that up because i'm at a loss as to what this is called}

I did not come up with this idea... although i wish i had.
I found it a while ago while blog hopping and didn't make a note of the creative genius
that came up with this.
{if you know where it came from, let me know and i'll update it here}

I bought that little ceramic plate at the $.99 store.
guess how much? yep, 99 cents :)

pretty, isn't it?
my bedroom is under construction right now ...
{and that's pretty much a nice way to say its a big fat mess in there since we are making some changes to it}.
this little pretty gives me such a visual relief from the surrounding chaos.

it's amazing what a little rice can do to make me feel a little more organized.
maybe someone else needs to come up with something using beans.
i've got a lot of unused beans in my pantry that need to be used :)

i'm linking up with my fabulous friend Heather at Finding Beauty in the Ordinary.
she just started a link-up called half cup half full where you can link up
anything that just makes you HAPPY.
whether it be a special moment or event, a special quote or bible verse..
the things that bring you joy..
even if it is just rice.

have a wonderful day!

It is sooooooo pretty!!! I hear you on the cooking of rice...seriously how do people perfect it?

carina@a punk, a pumpkin and a peanut said...

that's such a great idea! i am trying to get organized, and this would be really cute. something tells me one of my boys would find it, though, and i'd be sweeping rice for a week.
the key to perfect rice: a rice cooker. i couldn't live without it!

Ok how cute is that? You displayed them so beautifully! And of course, it helps that your RINGS are gorgeous too!

Thanks for the idea (even though you say it wasn't yours :)

Katie @ minivan diva said...

That's pretty cool looking! I love your ring collection.

Heather said...

oh my gosh1!! this is fabulous! i have got to try this! thank you so much for linking up, beautiful friend!! xoxo

Linda Z said...

That is such a lovely collection and I love this idea. So simple and perfect!!

I think the secret to cooking good rice in to not keep peeking at it. My rice comes out better when I just set the timer and then let it go! :)
