Why waste perfectly good tassels on a cushion? Much better to adorn one’s ears with them.
I have a pair of tassel earrings that I “made” by looping tassels from the notion section of the fabric store on ear wires. They get many comments. One woman, in her 60’s, complimented them and then said she wished she could wear earrings like that. I told her how simple they were to make and that she’d look lovely in a pair. She responded that she wouldn’t dare do so because she’d look like “a crazy old lady.” I didn’t think that was a bad thing and told her so. She shrugged off my encouragement.
These pink tassel earrings are even bolder (although I didn’t “make” them), but I’m not afraid of looking like a crazy old lady. In fact, I’d prefer that to “boring old lady” or “tired old lady” or “defeated old lady” or even “classy old lady.” Honestly, though, I don’t need earrings to look crazy. I’ve already got that covered.
