Great Wall of Earrings


“Jewelry takes people’s minds off your wrinkles.” – Sonja Henie.

In college, I stumbled upon a friend’s earring collection that she had artistically hung up on her wall via a scarf. I loved the idea so did the same in my dorm room. Needless to say, this scarf of earrings went where I went. So when I married and moved into my town home, the earrings did too.

When Z came into the picture, I had to knot the bottom of my earring wall as she would reach up and grab the goodies she could get.



Can you tell I like dangling earrings? Guess my favorite pair! IMG_1407 IMG_1406These were earrings purchased in Kalaam, Pakistan. They are super light; love this pair. Now a days, Kalaam isn’t so safe anymore sadly so I’m lucky to have gone when I went and to have purchased these then.

A funny story is that she was going out somewhere long ago and before she left, she tied my hair as I was a little girl then. At the event she went to, someone pointed out that she had also a girl’s hair rubberband dangling on one of her earrings (mine!). Such is the life of parenting.


I would love to get into decor ideas on my blog – a great blog for decor is A Beautiful Mess. I’ve been reading it and enjoying it. A fun way to put up jewelry is in one of their posts here.  More later!


About Doodling Through Life

I doodle. All the time. Doodling helps me make sense of the world around me. When I doodle, whether it be swirls or figurines, I am transformed to a world in which my doodles live, and my thoughts become clear. My mind breathes. Through my art medium of pencils, paint, potting soil, and pixels, I thrive. I am a teacher and have taught 2nd grade in Fulton County Schools in Atlanta, Georgia for 4 years. I am currently a Stay-At-Home-Mommy to a ___ daughter (she was born in June 2010—you can do the math !) and a ___ preschooler (she was born November 2012), an an infant (August 2017) who is exploring my creative outlet via the aforementioned 4 P’s! So far, I’m an author whose book Lailah’s Lunchbox was published in 2015 via Tilbury House Publishing. I have 2 new picture books projected for 2019: Amira's Picture Day (Holiday House, 2019) and Let Me Show You The Way (Eerdmans, 2019)! I’m an Atlanta based children-family-lifestyle photographer on weekends. Thank you for stopping by!
