Wow, did you get here fast. It seems like only yesterday, I was putting up the Thanksgiving plates

Speaking of earlobes and ornament earrings, they couldn’t be easier and always get compliments. Just pick up a box of mini-ornaments in your favorite assortment of colors and a pack of sterling silver French wire earring hooks at Amazon, A.C. Moore or Michael’s.
In addition to adorning your face, they make great gifts for all the girls (from tweeners on up) in your life. These earrings can’t help but get you in the Christmas spirit even if you can’t attend any of the events listed above. Did we miss any? As always, please leave a comment to share your event with the posse.
