I Found a Treasure

For those of you who know me well, know that I tend to lose the back to my earrings on a regular basis. I wear straitght backed pearls just about EVERYDAY!!! Normally I have a little supply of backs at home for back-up. HAHAHAHA man I crack myself up!!!! Well, it seems as though I have left all of my backs in the states and have slowly been taking them from other earrings throughout my stay. While in India, I lost a back. Surprise Surprise. So, I cut a tip of Gary's eraser off of his pencil to suffice until I could get back to Malaysia and find some backs. By the way, that's not the first time I had done that. I can't remember if it was my grand idea the first time or not, but needless to say if you ever need an earring back an eraser is a GREAT substitute. Back to the topic at hand...So...when I got back to Malaysia, of course I didn't go right away to purchase some backs, but when I finally remembered, all the places I checked didn't sale them without earrings. Ergo, the eraser back has been quite the stand in. I have had to change it a couple of times due to loss (hmmm hmmm) or complete demolishment, but other than that I actually have come to the conclusion that the eraser will probably be a permenant part of my jewelry collection for the next few months.
I said all of that to say this...I found a treasure today!!! I was snooping around in our supply room and guess what I saw???!!!! A WHOLE BOX OF ERASERS!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not talking about the kind that is attached to a pencil, I'm talking full on, big chunk of eraser!!!

I promise I'm not a hoarder, but next time you think about throwing an eraser away, or even an old pencil with a good eraser, think of me!!  I'm sure that happens to you everyday right...HAHA JK!

Happy Erasing,

How is it that you lose the backs of your earrings? I sleep in my pearls and in fact never take them off and I rarely if ever lose backs.
