A match made in heaven

They were a mismatched pair… some people said that their relationship wouldn’t last.

“Look! He’s closed and buckled down…” they whispered.

“She’s much too open and trusting!” others tittle-tattled.



But they didn’t care. Their differences were what united them – what made them special. And beautiful.

After a night of dancing and twirling, they liked nothing more than to nestle next to each other in perfect harmony.

Many thanks to the fantastic Maria-Thérèse, the girl who lives in a world of fairies and unicorns, for making these wonderful earrings for me – and surprising me with her gift.

I do love mis-matched things – be it earrings, socks or opinions.

How about you?

  1. I think they’re fun! And they go, even if they don’t match.

  7. It’s perfect. I love the colors and I would wear them. If you don’t need them, I can wear them.

    Mismatched can either be the best or the worse. By all sounds of it, you have the best when it comes to marriages and earrings.

  10. They are perfect, and perfect together. If they matched, would they have much to talk about?

  11. Opposites can be perfect bedfellows – so to speak. My wife and I are opposites but have been compatible for 46 years. Those earings will be just fine together! :-) – Dave

  15. I like them too. And I admit, I never thought a “mismatch” would match so well.:)

  16. Those are adorable! I wish I could have my own pair…. Now I am now off to see her blog…

  17. I love crazy striped or polka dotted socks…but truthfully never wore a pair that was mismatched…maybe I am missing out?!?

  19. Delightful!

  20. I’m way too anal to like mismatched things. I did babysit a girl once who would ONLY wear mismatched socks. I couldn’t handle it!

  21. Well, that was a very nice surprise and I do love the mis-matchiness of them (I know that’s not a word but it just seemed right…). It’s a cool picture, too.

  22. I love those. They’re so full of whimsy and sweetness!

  23. I used to wear mis-matched earrings all the time; I love asymmetrical stuff:)

    Mismatched things are a hazard of being me, as are inside out things, back to front things. I need help dressing!

  25. Those are wonderful earrings! I’ve worn mismatched earrings…just not on purpose!
