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?

    Ooh, pretty earrings. I never heard of the difference between free and attached earlobes before. I think mine are attached? I don’t know.

    I had refused to wear earrings for the last 15 years, except maybe once every two years, because my ear-holes are extra sensitive and often get infected, UNTIL I figured out the magic of dipping the posts in Benadryl Gel or Neosporin before putting them in my ears. No more pain!

    I feel like a whole world of cranial decorations has been opened up to me! And at this pivotal accessory time in my life, you should me this website which will allow me to spend hours of my day searching for the right pair.

    Or, I could just win the ones you have. :)

    I can’t tell if mine are free or attached. I think a hybrid. More free than attached though, I’m pretty sure. I want the earrings!

    Mine are attached. I don’t want those suckers wandering off on me, you know?

    Also, I love etsy, too, but sometimes the sheer amount of stuff on there gets overwhleming. I need a personal etsy shopper to filter through it all for me. You busy? Heh.

    Those earrings are beautiful! If I’m randomly chosen, I’ll be able to sport the earrings with whatever haircut I get on Friday after receiving Hair Thursday advice!

    my lobes they are free and would love to be adorned with those perfectly simple earrings. I also would love to see what other earrings you bought because we seem to have similar taste in jewelry.

    Man, I always thought free earlobes were kinda rare. Not based on these comments. Mine however are attached. And I’m loving those earrings! It’s so rare that I see non-stud earrings I like! (I’m not a big fan of regular hoops and dangly ones can feel so formal…)
