The little birds...

If you watch little birds you will see they are busy and happy! Using whatever they can find they create the most gorgeous little nest.
I would be the little bird with some glittery thread in her nest!
We can be like this. Happily working away with the things that are available to us to create a beautiful and happy home.
All the while with a little song in our heart.

Wear your pearls!

A couple of years ago I had a session with a personal stylist and it was fantastic! She is an Adelaide lady, Natalie Tucker. It was a great investment.  One of the things she told me was to wear pearls as they suit me, my skin and they are so flattering.

Sounds good :)

It's amazing how many of us have real or fake pearls that are gorgeous and we don't wear them. They are always in style and currently are even more fashionable. 

They are brilliant in that you can wear them with jeans and a t shirt or with an evening dress, equally well. Best of all we might have some already.

I got on better when I learned a few tricks to modify what I have. One that works better for me is to layer them up. A single strand doesn't seem to suit me but several together do and I always get comments then. If you lay your pearls down in a long oval shape you can use a ribbon to extend them to any length that suits you and you can add in extra layers. And just like that pearls or beads you haven't worn are suddenly the right length. 

It's like using the good china or crystal... enjoy and don't save for imaginary one day important visitors! Enjoy yourself,  shop your own jewellery box for something and give it a fresh lease on life. 


  1. I love pearls, I wear them all of the time I like to layer them and I love to wear them long and knotted. Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop. You help to make it so much fun.♥

    1. Thank you Katherine this is beautiful of you. I wore my pearls long and knotted today and one shorter strand as well and just with jeans and a pretty top. I am re stringing some too that broke years ago to give them a new lease of life. Have a wonderful weekend.x

  2. Lovely ideas here Annabel. Thank you for the reminder to wear my pearls.

    1. Pearls would suit you perfectly
