Oooh, Oooh! A CONTEST.

I am completely obsessed with Etsy. I admit it.

A couple of weeks ago, I came to the conclusion that I need more earrings in my life. What’s the point of having your ears pierced if you aren’t going to adorn the holes? C’MON, PEOPLE.

So, Etsy and I did our little mating ritual, which resulted in the purchase of several pairs of simple, beautiful earrings. (Simple jewelry lovers UNITE!)

My very favorite pair were handmade by Kate Szabone, and they have become permanent fixtures in my earlobes.

Well, the lovely Kate accidentally printed out duplicate orders and sent me two pairs of these beautiful earrings, and when I emailed about the duplication, she kindly told me to keep them. (SCORE.) And as much as I would like to KEEP THE EARRINGS as backups, I thought it might be nice to share the love with y’all.


Aren’t they perfectly simple? And pretty? Can you not tell because my ears are devouring the entire photo?

These beauties need a loving home. (The new ones, of course. Not the ones in my ears- Whoorl is a proper hygiene advocate.)

So! Leave a comment starting now through midnight EST tonight, and I will randomly choose a winner to be announced tomorrow. Cool? Cool.

And for those people (like me) who need some sort of comment direction, tell me, do you have a free or attached earlobe?

    Would you believe I have one of each?
    Sigh. I remember vividly, in 4th grade, learning about genetics, filling out a questionnaire. Do you have a widow’s peak, can you roll your tongue, etc. Everyone was asking about free or attached ear lobes, I asked. Each person on either side of me gave a different answer.
    Then EVERYONE in the class had to see.

    I’m still scarred by the whole experience, so clearly I deserve the oh-so-lovely earrings… *fingers crossed*

    Oh, my ear lobes are aching for those! :D

    I’m bored with boring old silver hoops! :D

    OH! I love those earrings! I am excited to wear earrings again, since I wont have any little monkeys trying to rip them off…

    Oh, and I am quite “attached” to my ears. :P

    Attached and proud. My outer ear also has those ridgy things that my mom calls angel bites. Does anyone know what I’m talking about? There must be a biological term for that.

    You have super cute ears!
    I heart earrings, my favorite pair I inherited from my grandma. They are lovely but unfortunately/fortunately VERY formal- Trying to figure out if I can wear them when I get married next year.
    And my earlobes? Free!

    I’ve heard of people who do attachment lobing; you know, co-sleeping with their earlobes at night, carrying them in a sling during the day, but my ears are more a fan of the Free Lobe Movement, which I’m pretty sure dates back to the sixties. Flower lobes, VW jewlry boxes and all that. Make Lobe, Not War is what I say.

    I have never commented on a blog before but I think I love these earrings so much, I just have to! They are simple and interesting…

    I have the free lobes. Freeeeeeee. (And clearly am not the only one who cannot resist saying it like that.)

    I think mine are attached – kinda half ‘n’ half maybe. They are pretty earrings & I’m a huge Etsy addict too. Especially the jewelry.

    I have free lobes.

    My lobes are free.

    Also, does it matter if, um, the earrings aren’t, um, for your ears?

    My lobes have been free for weeks…just looking for the right match.

    I am addicted to buying (everything, but especially) earrings from Etsy.

    Um, and I think mine are attached.
