Friday Pretties: Jazz up your day ... wearing some funky jewellery! 
The bright yellow bauble in these pictures belongs to a wristlet of mine, that looks like it is made of chocolates wrappend in tin-foil. All the kids love it, when they see it, and for me it's a reminder to never forget that a little sweetness can change your mood any time. A chocolate truffle, a raspberry icecream, a lovely compliment, a bunch of flowers, a little walk in the sunshine, a hug, a song, a smile, a small present ... hmmm, maybe buy something for your friend today, because -
The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.

    It's raining here again so to visit you today with such a colorful and cheerful post made the sun shine in my heart and my studio :) Today is a friend's birthday and she's been dealing with a chronic illness. I'm going to cheer her up with some of her favorite design magazines!

    I'm so glad you like my new do, Martina! I'm still a bit numb about Paris. I'm leaving May 18 for a week and meeting other women at a rented apartment. No man included. Unless of course, a savvy Frenchman sweeps me away and I'll have to call my hubby to tell him I'll be late getting home :)

    Have a bright and cheerful weekend, dahling!!!!!!!!

    Lovely pictures!!!!
    Thanks for sharing!

  13. Beautiful jewelry!! My dear hubby and I go out for coffee at our local "Borders" book store & cafe and they sell the little wrapped truffles that have that same sort of gold wrapper. I once saved one of the wrappers to put in a scrapbook because I thought it was so pretty!
    I do think we bring cheer to ourselves when we think of brightening up another one's day!! :)

    Thanks for the warm cheer today!

    xoxo Gloria
