Today I am participating in 2 "Blog Parties":
1. Rhoda, at Southern Hospitality, hosts Today's Thrifty Treasures each Monday. I love seeing what everyone found during their "thrifty shopping" over the weekend. Be sure to visit her blog to read about more treasures!
2. This is my first chance to join the fun over at Between Naps on the Porch. Susan hosts the weekly "Metamorphosis Monday". I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to join the fun. Visit her blog to see other treasure transformations.
I bought several earrings at an estate sale recently. Unfortunately, the lady did not have pierced ears. Some of the earrings have been made into magnets, but I wanted to repurpose these "dangly" ones into something my daughter and I could wear. Here's a pic of the before:
Notice the ones on the earring stand--I love these! I pulled off the clip on the back and just glued on a small post using E6000!
And the rest just got ear wires added:
This last pair was constructed by combining the "green balls" of two of the pairs in the "before picture":
So, if you liked these--keep an eye out for vintage earrings at the next estate sale you attend! I know I will!
Enjoy your day!
