Oh my, your earrings are quite a statement.

My small red jewelry box holds the pieces I wear most often. Makes it easier to have everything within reach especially when I start my day at 5am every day, with Sunday being the exception.

I treasure this ring dearly. It was given to my mother nearly 28 years ago and it is still with us.

"Oh my, your earrings are quite a statement." - a friend after seeing my display of earrings in my hallway.

I like wearing earrings but what I like the most is collecting them. I display my collection of more than 200 earrings in my hallway. Whenever I'm at home I will find any reason to walk through my hallway just to admire my pretty earrings. I don't know what it is but earrings make me smile. After a long day of work or when I need a bit of inspiration I stare at my earrings and gosh does it feel great. I feel a sense of relif and renewal.

This is my collection of nearly 10 years.

And yes, I have a couple of earrings that are the same style but in different colors. I love detail and especially when it has to be seen up close.
