Do You Think I Like Earrings?

Happy Monday, everyone! First of all, this is my 100th post, so that's pretty exciting.

Secondly, remember that beautiful pink net book I showed you a week ago? Well, thanks to my good 'ole Dad and a birthday coming up, a very similar one (even cuter if you ask me) will be arriving at my apartment via FedEx tomorrow. I am SOOO excited. And don't worry, you'll get pictures.

Now, on to business.

I like earrings. Really, I guess it's more honest to say that I'm obsessed with earrings. Big earrings. Chandeliers, feathers, lots of beads, whatever. I love them.

It all started when I was six months old. Being the first born, and my mom being a new proud mother, she was appalled whenever strangers would walk up to me in my pink frilly dresses and headbands on my bald head and say, "What a cute little boy!" Shocking, right?

So, she took me straight to the ear piercing salon and got my ears pierced. I cried for about 2.5 seconds until they handed me a sucker. There are a couple reasons I am forever grateful for that:
1. I don't remember it.
2. I am a total needlephobe now, so who knows if I would have had the guts to get them pierced on my own, and
3. I never had a problem with ear infections.

Clearly, I have worn earrings as long as I can remember and I started wearing more funky fun earrings in college. The problem arose that they would get lost. Or tangled together. I had too many to really put in a jewelry box. I needed a new way to store them. So, after seeing this brilliant idea at a friend's house, I copied it.

It's an easy craft idea for everyone. Are you ready for this?


Yes. It's a picture frame with some screen stapled to it so I can hang my earrings on it. This photo is a little dated, and my earring holder is super full. I now need to get a bigger picture frame. But you guys, it's so easy. Here is what it looks like on the wall:



On the other wall I have some nails to hold up necklaces. Kinda ghetto, but whatever. I like it. You can get whatever kind of frame you like, in any color or design. I went with cheap for my first try. Next time I might scale it up a little. (-:

So, what do you think? Do you have a creative way to store your earrings?

  4. At my book club last week we had a convo about when to pierce ears. My mom was like yours and took me when I was still a baby. I am so thankful for that. I am obsessed with earrings as well. You won't see me without them!

  5. Aww, I love it! I love earrings too, but I hate how heavy they feel and they get all stuck in my {ridiculously} curly hair!

  6. VERY CUTE! I love earrings and I have a ton, too. I use little decorative boxes, but I made a bulletin board with ribbons and "tacks" to hang all my necklaces!!! Very similar to your frame!

  7. What a great idea. I just keep mine in a cute bowl, but it's far from organized.

  8. Such a cute easy idea! It's like artwork on the wall there. I have 2 earring holders that I got at Forever 21 it works really well. I haven't filled it up yet, but I know there will be a day.
