A Room Full

It has been quite a while since I posted.  A LOT has happened but yet a lot still stays the same.  Let me fill you in on a few details…

I had a major surgery about 18 months ago and I stopped wearing my ears everywhere.  I honestly did not want people staring at me because I in pain and just grumpy.  There is a certain expectation about friendliness when you wear the ears.  BUT then the last month I really want to start wearing them again.

On September 1, 2017 I will begin wearing them again.  Everywhere except church and church type functions and anything where it would be obviously disrespectful.

Here is a couple pictures of my living room.  As my collection grew I was finding it difficult to display them nicely.  One day I said to my husband, “I would like to make my ears look like pieces of art.  I think I would like to frame them.” The idea of shadow boxes was born.  I really like the look of them.  I made it so I can just take them off the wall for easy wearing.  I started with 20 ears and made 20 shadow boxes, however my collection is well over 20 ears, that is just the headband kind.

A little bit about my collection.  I don’t just buy any ears with a Disney Parks logo.  I need to like them or they need to have meaning for me.  Some of the newer, “puffy” bow styles, I am not a fan of.  But there are others where I can not collect them fast enough.

In upcoming posts, I thought I would share with you the story behind each pair.  Just like the mouse ears you may have at home in your closet, they tell a story of how they came to be there.
