Stupid Earring Day


Oh yeah.  You've got a drawer full of this stuff too.  Don't even try to tell me otherwise.  You needed it for a special outfit or a costume, something that provided that extra little punch.  It took a look from just okay, to pizazz!  I had to twist Gerri's arm to get her to put these back on.  Those clips just kill your earlobes.  Remember?


Susan has drawers full of this stuff.  There were tea parties and garden parties and birthday bashes and, well, you get the idea.  She still has the dress that goes with these earrings.   Stupid Earring Day was her idea.   We thought it sounded like fun.  Where else are we going to wear our "jewels"?  But we don't encourage her.  Who knows what will be next!


Virginia said she didn't have any tacky jewelry and had to go shopping for these.  We didn't believe her.  Every woman has some tacky stuff hidden somewhere.  Then she came in these drop dead gorgeous Betsy Johnson earrings which I love.  I'll have to find out where she got these. 


Yes, she always looks like this.  Gwen makes most of her jewelry.  She has more jewelry than all the other women in our group put together.  Serious jewelry.  So this wasn't a stretch for her.  But none of it is tacky.  Just really big.  For her own good, we don't let her near water.


These are the kind of earrings that keep hitting your shoulder when you turn your head, so they are a real pain in the neck.  But they look good.  And Sandi bought the earrings for this floor length dress.  She looks fabulous. 


Pat is consistent.  She and her house look alike.  If you took her earring and blew it up a hundred times, she would put it on her wall as modern art.  She loves it and it does look great.  Virginia thinks Pat is the whitest white woman she has ever seen.  We think so too. She doesn't get out much until the sun goes down.


Yep, it's me.  I had huge hoop earrings that had bananas and pineapples in them.  They went with my Carmen Miranda Halloween costume.  There was nothing tackier than those earrings.  But, I couldn't find them.  So, I bought these at a Dollar Store sale - now that's cheap!  Maybe I'll use them for Valentine's Day....


  1. I absolutely deny your statement that I have a drawer full of this stuff. I do not. Not even one. I do have one pierced ear, however, but it hasn´t had anything hanging there in about 40 years.

  2. Felipe,

    Don't tell me a little diamond stud wouldn't look fabulous!

  3. oh la laa...
    Virginia rocks! I love her earrings!
    But your are full of LOVE! Very pretty! You're so cool! :)

    Greetings from Casablanca again!


  4. Blogitse,

    Yep, Virginia does rock. She is hilarious. None of us are what you would call the average Grandmother, but we try not to be outrageous. Mostly, that doesn't work. :>)
