If I could travel back in time..

If I ever had the chance to travel back in time it would quite possible be to this earring shop in the 1950's!!! Hand?!! Champagne bucket?!! Swiss Clock?!! YES PLEASE!!!

Earring trivia: To my knowledge none of my Novelty Earrings are vintage but I've never though to look for any. Until now anyway!

Message from the past!

I was going through a few things the other day & stumbled upon something that played a massive part in my earring collection! Pretty much the thing that started it all from the person that started it all!  What I found was a little brown bag that contained my first pair of earrings (I've already written about my first pair you can read about them here) with a lovely note on it from my Uni friend Emma :)

It's almost as important as the little skeleton earrings they came with! I can't recall what I'd done or what was in the Myspace (?!) messages! What I do know is that I'll forever be grateful to Emma for getting the ball rolling. Sometimes I just need a little nudge in the right direction & amazing things can happen. So thank you Emma! 

Earring trivia: Majority of earrings I receive as gifts are from people who tell me "I saw these & they made me think of you". Big thanks to all those who contribute to my collection! :)

Tin Tin Earrings

It was only just last year that I decided I needed a pair of book earrings to add to my collection. I began a search on the internets to see what I could find & stumbled on not only book earrings, but TIN TIN BOOK EARRINGS! 

I only read a few comics when I was growing up (pretty much what they had in the library at school) & Tin Tin was one of them. I loved the cartoon as well so when I found these I knew they had to be part of my collection. I've already worn them quite a bit too!

The hardest decision with these was choosing which pair of Tin Tin earrings to get! All 24 comic covers were available in different pairings combinations (as pictured). It was not an easy decision as I kinda wanted them all!

The creator for these glorious book earrings was 'Book Beads'! There was such a wide variety to choose from too! Ranging from Tin Tin to Harry Potter, Dr Who to Beatrix Potter & heaps more. I think you can even request custom covers if you're not seeing what you're looking for, so perhaps look out for some Dean Koontz book earrings down the track.. :)

(I should point out that 'Book Beads' also does bracelets, bookmarks, cufflinks and heaps more! Well worth checking out.) 

Earring Trivia: The Tin Tin covers featured on the back of my earrings are 'Land of Black Gold' & 'The Secret of the Unicorn'. Also I haven't seen the new Tin Tin movie because I'm not too keen on CGI.
