Cheer Up, Dear

My dearest friend Angel and I decided this past weekend that we did not want to wait until Christmas, so we exchanged gifts early. Such children we are. This sweet owl-clock necklace was one of the delightful gifts she gave me. My time with her was undoubtedly the best part of the weekend. Everything else was rather meh.

Sunday was a particularly unhappy day. When days like that come about, I do my best to cheer myself. First I play dress up. Pretty dresses and frilly shirts usually have a way of improving a downcast heart.

But if that doesn't work, I cuddle with Pea. She can always tell when I'm upset. Such a little mother she is.

If I'm still feeling glum, I stuff my face with as much chocolate as is possible. (I know I'm not the only one who practices this solution.)

And when all else fails, I blare angry, heavy-metal music as loud as my ear drums will tolerate.

That does the trick :)

Outfit Details:

Blouse//Vintage, early 1970s
Necklace//Gift from Angel
Ring//Vintage - My mom's

  10. That blouse is adorable and I'm loving your pretty owl necklace. I exchanged gifts with a couple of my friends early this year too! It's always nice to spread the presents out a little bit instead of all at once.


I do my best to respond to all comments, but I'm pretty scatterbrained. So if I skip over you, it's most surely unintentional.
Thank you for your sweet words!
