i didn't know it. he often talks about "i could make that" when we see something cool. but he never does. (although he loves DIY) as we approached Christmas he was at a loss for what to get me and there wasn't much i wanted. i had noticed that my earring collection had out grown my earring tree so i began looking for a new way to display/hold my earrings. i mean, i'm obsessed with earrings. even more so since i went bald. it's my thing now. i need earrings. (even though despite the dangling earrings someone will still call me a sir...really?!) anyway, i looked at etsy and pinterest for some new and fresh ideas. i found something on etsy i kind of liked and emailed it to adam. my intentions were for him to find something fun and buy it. what a surprise to open up a handmade gift on Christmas morning. he had found an antique frame at Sleepy Poet and bought some sort of wire thing and made me an earring holder. when we finally hung it on our wall and i put all my earrings on it, i just admired it for so long. i love it. i love that all my earrings have a home. but mostly i love that my husband got to make me something. there are gaps available for even more.
