Today is March 25 and we all know what that means: it's National Waffle Day. Well, if you're on a diet (boo) or can't make it to one of the many waffle specialists our fair metropolis has to offer, but you still want to celebrate, we've got something for you. Here is a pair of gold filled waffle earrings from Lisa (A.K.A.) ChicagoGirlVintage on everybody's favorite social commerce site where DIY meets WTF, Etsy. According to the listing (and we can see it too) the earrings remind Lisa of the golden bricks from Super Mario Bros. Also according to the listing, the earrings are unmarked but tested as 10k gold fill and weigh 2.6 grams. Spoiler: one lucky waffle enthusiast bought them already.
