The Dangly Kind

One of my husbands most repeated quotes from Home Alone is "...a whole show box full of them dangly ones!"  The grouchy old man says this of his wife as Kevin's mom is begging them for their plane tickets.  It may seem to be a strange quote to repeat but in our house it actually fits really well!  You see, I love earrings!  Like, I really love them!  Now, I don't keep mine in a shoebox, just a drawer dedicated to them in my dresser.  You will be hard-pressed to find me without earrings at almost any given time!  In fact, as I was preparing to deliver Wells the nurse told me I had to take my earrings out and Graham and I both looked at her in total horror!  And, it is very rare for us to see the Caudills when Craig doesn't say to me "Wearing your small earrings tonight, huh?"  I just love them...they are the prefect accessory!  And I firmly believe that they can make or break any outfit!  Here are some of my favorites:
I can honestly tell you that I am obsessed with these pearls!  I found them about 7 years ago in
Wilmington, NC and had a fit over them!  These are like: "If you could only take 5 things with you what you take?" kind of earrings! 
Ahh, the leaves!  I have these in gold and silver and wear them at least 3 times a week!  They go with everything and I love 'em!
These too can be found in silver and gold in my drawer!  I mean, if it ain't broke?
Call me crazy, but I love a good shell!  Old school or not, still love them!
And last but not least...the cascade!  I am loving this style earring right or silver! 

 So, there you have it!  An entire post on earrings! 
Happy Thursday!
