I had forgotten about this picture until my SisterCindy reminded me - check out the little turtle pull toy on the sofa next to me. This was my first birthday. I guess I started really young with the turtle thing?
The earrings are my newest turtles - also courtesy of SisterCindy - read the back story on these earrings and their pendant friends on her blog: http://higginsdesignstudio.blogspot.com/
And let me say it again - I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE these earrings! They have a heavy copper wire top, which is surprisingly comfortable in the ear, and they go with EVERYTHING!!! I have had them in every day since the package arrived.
