I did get my ears pierced long long ago, in something like 1974. And I had these earrings -- from a hippy shop in Gastown, I remember buying them.
And then I had my pseudo punk phase, when I got a couple of extra holes in my ears and wore this little axe through the ear, and odd zipper pulls...
But then I had kids, and earrings were too much trouble, and did tend to get pulled on once in a while, so I just haven't worn any for years. I learned that my second hole in my left ear is still open, so I can have 3 earrings at once! First, we have to be patient and wash our lobes 3 times a day for 6 weeks.
And I have to sort through the rest of this box! I made myself a lot of earrings with beads at one point! That is a bucket of fun, and I see a trip to the bead store in my future... But also, another trip to Claire's for a different kind of fun. Love that wall of colour stuff!
