These are far and away the most elegant pair of earrings I own. I picked them up in a vintage shop in downtown Wilmington in February 2012. I was on a first date, and we were just walking around the downtown area. When we found the little shop, I looked at him and asked him if he could amuse himself for a few minutes, and I bought these. I almost bought a ring at the same time, but it didn’t quite fit.
All of this reminds me that I rarely, like never, go downtown, and that I should, because there are beautiful things there. And also that I rarely wear earrings, and I should, because they are pretty, and I like the way they sway when I laugh.
