It started with a spring clean…
I’ve had gremlins..or little fingers…logged on this morning to find no post. Gone like the dew in the morn except for the first paragraph in draft form and 2 comments! Great. So here it is again, sort of – and I apologise to anyone who got this ditty twice due to the re-publishing…
It started snowing again today…snowing. In London. In
March April. It’s pathetic. But somewhere deep inside there is a feeling of spring coming – because I don’t know what else is making me want to clear out cupboards and fill up dustbin bags. Which would be rip roaringly good except I have come to the conclusion that I am probably the worst de-clutterer ever…take this morning..I attacked our ensuite with the firm intention of getting jewellery sorted into piles, old make up thrown out (read ‘give to daughter’) and detritus removed. I got as far as the jewellery…I have this pile of old earrings in a brass bowl..
They’ve become part of the furniture. I keep them for some sentimental reason or other because the majority are dangly earrings and I never wear dangly earrings..
Then I had this thought – what if I could change them? turn them into stud earrings? Surely worth a try..so I set off to the shops…
And then I couldn’t resist these.
And these just had my name written all over them…
Removed the dangly hook thing, added copious amounts of this..
Macabre jellyfish skeleton men on juju juice! Why do I love these so much?!
Got utterly carried away and added additional gemming – but these I WILL WEAR with a white shirt dress and wedges in the summer…which admittedly could be never..
The additional shape, the little pop of colour..makes all the difference.
Neon orange stud hoops! J’adore!
My alien babies! You look at them…and then look again..
Moral of the story? – Mess is obviously inspirational.
My tip of the day? – make sure the buggers are completely dry BEFORE you put them on…previously I never used to wear them…now I can never take them off..
Laters…much later, Kate x
This is proof of procrastination gone right! Lovely post, I adore the ‘over gemmed’ pair! xo
I’m liking your thinking – where did I go so right? Procrastination rules! Xxx
They are all great! I’m looking and looking and still can’t pick a favourite!
Muchos grazias! Xxx
It snowed in Minnesota last night and we can expect much more tonight. Last year at this time it was in the 70s! Yet, I too have been decluttering (haven’t gotten to the nitty gritty of cleaning yet) for a month! It’s a soulful endeavor. http://blogdot2ndstreetmarketdotcom.wordpress.com/ Looking forward to enjoying your blog!
