It was within this basket that I found a pair of Monet vintage clip-on earrings. They were around $2.00 and looked really cool, a total impulse purchase.
I won't lie, at first these earrings really had me stumped. I was trying to clip them on to my lobes which did not work as they were too top heavy. After a few tries I gave up on them and vowed to find another creative use for them. Last night, while looking for some earrings, I came across my unique purchase and felt that they were just too special to give up on. And then it hit me, they hang from the cartilage of the ear! Voila!
I have to admit that I felt pretty stupid for not figuring this out right away on my own. I suppose in the realm of modern day earrings these are anything but ordinary, or at least this is what I will tell myself for comfort.
Have you made any recent vintage purchases?
