Because the holes in my ears start closing as soon as I take my earrings out, I wear sleeper’s. These round rings are really plain, and I like to add a little charm of some sort to them. To that end, I buy cheap earrings from a place that sells a wide variety. They don’t last, but I don’t mind as the price is indicative of the quality. The sleeper’s I have are really old, and the catch is not perfect. A few months ago I lost one of the dangly bits. Not too worried, I just changed them over. And thankfully I did not throw the one cluster away. Last month while walking in the cottage bedroom I noticed something glinting in the wood. The floor is solid pine but the planks were seconds, meaning they are not perfect.

And they have not been sanded and sealed. Stuck in one of the joins was the charm. I was really quite shocked, as it could have landed anywhere! And even more so when this happened again, not at home, but in my car. Last week when I took my mask off the earring must have opened. That earring has a cubic zirconia charm which was not part of the cheap purchases. I didn’t notice until I got home and was really grateful that as soon as I looked down I could see it shining against my black carpet. This time I was lucky the carpets were black! Have you ever lost something precious and then found it sometime later?

  1. When I was pregnant with my second child, my fingers swelled and unlike my first pregnancy they stayed bigger, so I couldn’t wear my wedding rings. After running around like this for a couple years my mother said, “well at least you should have a ring and bought one that looked a little like my wedding ring with a small ruby and diamond chips. It wasn’t super expensive but not cheap either. I wore it for years, then one day it disappeared. I was pretty sure the cat had run off with it and we looked everywhere with no luck. Well a few years later we were cleaning up some empty boxes and there was the ring! Since then I’ve been careful to put it inside a cupboard when I take it off to cook, though she’s older and a little better behaved now!

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
