OH I LOVE THAT GOLD NECKLACE: This limited edition Dani M for Michi necklace is adorable, isn’t it? I feel like a dork whenever I say or write “isn’t it” because it reminds me of English class when I was 13.

My birthday is coming up soon, so dear husband if you’re reading this: wink, wink.  I know it’s ridiculous that I’m thinking about my birthday already, because it’s in two months and I don’t even really like to celebrate my birthday (I’ve had my 25th a looooooong time ago). But I need something to keep my mind up in the cloud, I’ve been feeling gloomy and sad lately. Today, I am an empty vessel.

Something nice to start the day with (though I’m wondering who’d be wearing a yellow jumper?). The weather has been miserable here for… wait… how long? I’ve totally lost track!

skylarkstudioBefore I started tat blog I didn’t know how much I love jewelries. My obsession is starting to get pretty ridiculous at this point. And I have to remind myself that I can’t buy all of them… This is really too bad because I’ve just discovered Skylark Studio and I really really want the Buckhorns Necklace and again I know… not my birthday….  it’s not Christmas yet….I didn’t do much lately to deserve it! Life can be tough some times!

Today I feel homesick. It’s not so much that I miss living in France, but I miss afternoons spent watching my mum sewing or cooking. Well, really I miss being 5 years old… And this is all because this morning I was looking at those necklaces from White Owl. It’s just reminded me of times where I could be happy spending hours wearing a curtain as a veil pretending I was getting married to Goldorak.

I’ve been obssessed with Abigail’s jewelries for a while now. I keep visiting her online shop and feeling like buying but everytime something’s stopping me. You might think I’m silly but I don’t buy anything because I feel like it’s too pretty for me… nearly like I’d be ruining her creation by wearing them! They’re just so beautiful and I feel I need to do something really special to deserve it. Obviously I can’t use being a new mum twice… maybe I can treat myself because I’m back at work… hehehe… I’m pure evil …

So that day at work wasn’t so bad. Tomorrow I’ll be in a better spirit, so I could wear a hello necklace, or greet people with a friendly hi or even invite them for a cup of tea. I really like Joanna Rutter’s jewelry collection, she’s probably one of my favourite Etsy seller.

Tonight my heart feels heavy and cloudy. Tomorrow I’ll be back at work after 9 months spent at home with my little bundle of joy (I know, I know 9 months is already soooo much!). But even if I know this is the way it has to be and it’s not like I’ve got other plans at the moment, it feels sad really. So I wish I had one of those necklaces for tomorrow, so people don’t keep asking me how I feel about being back at work (dear beloved friend and colleagues… please don’t ask me… really… I’m serious)

Hummingbird necklace July 29, 2009

I love this necklace, because it’s simple and stylish and because I love hummingbirds. Hummingbirds must be the cutest and funniest birds ever (also the smallest).  I love the way they move and flap their wings. I read somewhere (who am I kidding! I read it on wikipedia!) that they can flap their wing 12-90 times per second depending on the species… wouaaaaw!

I love the space invaders necklace and yes I know it’s so geeky, why on earth would I wear that? But I love it, I love it, I love it (see… I said that 3 times, it means I really love it). The space invaders necklace is from Vice and Vanity. And while I was browsing on their website I’ve found some more pretty (non-so-geeky) necklaces… see… I’m no a total geek after all!

I love the Spiro collection by Miette. I’ve spend so much time playing with my spirograph as a child… well… it wasn’t mine… it wa my brother’s and I wasn’t so much of a child. Yes, I was a geek already back in my teenage days!
