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.
