Wednesday's Fashion~~~Earrings

 For Christmas two of my dearest friends gave me beautiful earrings. When I put them on I realized that I hadn't worn earrings in a very long time.  


                                   Earrings I received
                            


    One of my friends was wearing feathered earrings which are very much in style now and were also in style in the late 70's. There is just something about wearing earrings that makes me feel super girly. I stopped wearing them when the kids were babies and when I worked with small children...the fear that a tiny hand would reach and pull one of my earrings was enough to make me stop wearing them for a while. Now I think its time to "girl out" and wear them again everyday and not just on special occasions.

  4. I love earrings... YOu know that feeling when you walk out of the house without your wedding ring? You feel kinda necked! I have that feeling when I forget my wedding ring AND my earrings. I'm very faithful to my earrings:) But I have to say I don't own a single pair of feather earrings. I need to do something about that.

  5. My spouse, the Education Tipster wears earrings. I think that in general they are lovely. I don't like the super-long ones, the 1940 one is nice.

  6. I almost feel naked without them! I have always loved the bohemian (aka hippy) style earrings - large hoops, chandelier earrings. I think the feathers look cool in the picture but they're not me. But I do like dangly earrings, I'm not much for studs. The 1920's and 1940's earrings look like me, and the ones you got are just beautiful. Gosh, I like to talk earrings!!

  8. I wear earrings everyday. Love them. Used to collect them when I was younger. I love the look of the long ones you pictured but don't think I could wear them with my very short hair

  9. I have a pair of small diamond earrings that my hubby gave me the year our third child was born. It was a very rough birth and afterwards the little one ended up spending time in ICU. (He's perfectly healthy now, Praise God) They are very special to me and the only ones I ever wear:)
