Girl with a Basil Earring

If ever you find yourself in need of auricular attire that is both visually and aromatically pleasing, not to mention good for the taste buds and soft to the touch, take a cue from the lovely Amanda and pick a leaf of fresh basil to thread on some yarn and needle through your lobes with nimble fingers. I didn't have a chance to ask more about her technique, but you can try to track her down at the Blossom Bluff Orchards stand at the S.F. Ferry Plaza farmers' market. Below, a closeup of the perfect summertime ornament:

If this were a magazine, you would be able to peel back the paper basil "leaf" and sniff a sample of the fragrance.
