Blogging subjects are getting harder to come by, so I’m getting down to the nitty gritty (not!) now … earrings!
I’m not much into wearing jewellery. Sometimes I notice what others are wearing, though, thinking it looks really good at times. I have a pair of diamond studs, and I never think about changing. Once I went to the mall, together with another woman, and she found me so strange, because I wasn’t really interested in looking at all that type of stuff in the stores. I’m not talking about the jewellery stores here, no, the ones where they have all kinds of junque … accessories, I believe they call it. Cheap stuff. Besides I’m scared of them. You just never know what kind of heavy metals are in them. Anyways, we’re all different people, and she might not have been all that drawn to stationery stores if there had been any.
Once, though, while we were still living in Quebec City, I don’t know what possessed me, but I bought these!
What?! Green fur balls?! They’re so not me but I fell head over heels in love with them, and I’ve kept them — thought they were kind of cute, or something. Brought them out now, for this shot. Maybe, some day, I’ll wear them.
I do have another pair of earrings, that used to belong to my mother. They are simple gold rings, but the thing is, they aren’t made for pierced ears, they’re the type you screw on, and I can’t handle that. I’ve been thinking seriously about having them altered, but not gotten around to it.
Looking at them now, which I haven’t done for quite some time, I really think I should pull myself together and bring them to the jewellery repair store.
