The latest in jewelry!

Some of you may remember earlier this summer when I did this post about the beaded necklaces a few of the residents at our nursing home were making.
You'll have to excuse the picture, but I was laughing when my friend Nancy took it. This is their latest offering in jewelry - pierced earrings! There have been several staff members walking around at our nursing home wearing long beaded earrings.
No, they aren't very practical, and most of us can't wear them for long because the we are allergic to the wires, but they do make a couple of guys happy when they see people wearing them.

I do remember that story, and I knew as soon as I saw the picture of you with the dangling earrings exactly where they came from. :)

Kim said...

Perfect for every outfit in your closet! :-) With all those colors, they really will go with everything.

Those are really cute but they'd never do around here, not with little Abby getting the use of her hands, can you imagine? OW.

Mary Lee said...

I bet that does make them happy, but I wouldn't be able to wear them for long, either.

Love them and the picture! You have a beautiful smile!! I bet you make their days when they see all of you wearing their own creations!

Grandma Elsie said...

I even felt brighter when I saw your smile.
Well thought they are kinda longish so guess they get tiring. bet you make the residents feel needed and useful.
Rewarding word. Have a nice week end .Ours is suppose to be wet.

They look great on you! You look so radiant! Great picture! You should not get hit by lightning now because you have ground wires. =)

Very cute! As hard as nursing can be, we do have some fun sometimes don't we!?!

Mari,

What if you made them into a loop instead of a long string? It's the thought that counts and I am sure you are making a lot of people smile!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Oh Mari, it just brings me back to the days of being a kid and making tacky stuff and thinking it was so cool.

You look stinkin' cute! I love that the residents make this stuff and you humor them. It's so fun!

Kat said...

Hi sweet friend!

You look adorable!!!! Seriously! I know these "particular" earrings might not be your first choice, but I think long earrings look good on you with your cute haircut.

Thanks for your birthday wishes and all your visits while I've been AWOL!

Hugs!
Kat
