Life goes on....

 I'm in a much better mood now and thank you all for your support and sweet comments...
 Life goes on for sure.... 
And what a better way to remind ourselves that we're alive, than by adding some yellow to our outfits and let some sunshine in! Although not my favourite colour, yellow does warm up the picture and my heart!

 Remember the yellow trendy cardi I forced myself to buy last fall? I wore it only once through remixing, here. I thought I'd give it another chance, before I finish my remix. (which was planned to finish during the weekend, but oh well... bear with me a little longer!).

 To make it extra silly happy, I added my new brooch, the "Home sweet home", which you've seen half finished here. As soon as I finished it, I had an idea! Not only this is a happy, lovely brooch to wear, but it would make a cute house decoration too!  So I added a wreath to the picture. Here I am while making it (and glueing my fingers on the carpet...)!

 And here is the finished product: the "Home, sweet home" brooch+wreath!! (...or breath... or wrooch?!... never mind!). 
More of those beauties to come!

  4. Can never go wrong with polka dots! I'm glad you're starting to feel better.

  5. Thank you dear! Nice to meet you, though it could have been under better circumstances... Your blog is very nice! :)

  6. You are stylin' and crafty- what a great combo! I'm so happy you're starting to feel better- a pop of yellow never hurts ;)

  7. Thank you sweety!! I'm glad you stopped by! All the blog-friend support did wonders... :)
    And I even met new and interesting people..

  8. I'm glad you're feeling a little better, I would take a bullet for my dogs, so I understand just how deep connections we forge with animals can be.

    on a happier note, that pin is one of the most wonderful things I've ever seen! I am also so impressed with the wreath you made from it... I would be thrilled if I were even just one sixteenth as crafty as you :) the outfit is super cute, I love the matching belt and shoes, and then the yellow does wonders for brightening up that outfit, and consequently, your outlook on life :)

    I know what you mean about yellow... not my favorite color, but when I'm wearing it I feel like 38% more optimistic about everything!

  9. lovely, lovely lovely!! the outfit is so adorable, esp it goes well in the sunny terrace view, plus added that cutie brooch..I am thumbs up on your handmade!!

    p.s your outfit reminded me of Kimmie's (similar), one of the blogs I follow:

  10. Thank you Alex! I'm feeling kind of better, but all animal lovers can understand how I feel... You're so sweet! And I love your hair and style and funny, sincere posts. Keep it up girl! :)

    Dear girl, sweety, I can't thank you enough! You're always caring and optimistic!! Yay for Kimmie-I'll go check out! :)

  11. I love the colors such as yellow optimistic though rather more on someone else than myself, immediately is getting a light-hearted. great dress. Belt is great, I love those vintage things with their own history because they have souls.

  14. Oooh pin up!? Thank you, thank you!!

  15. I love polka dots and yellow. A real 'happy' outfit. Your wreath is so cute - I need to get one for easter - since coming back to Africa I've stopped putting up wreaths, maybe its time to resurrect that tradition.

  16. Thank you sweety! Yes, please do! A wreath on your door can be so inviting and beautiful! And for me decorating is as essential as breathing: keeps me balanced and happy!
    p.s. - How cool is it that you live in Africa!? I was always wondering what life can be like there... I'm glad I've "met" you Wendy! :)

  17. I love the bright yellow with the spots. Perfection. Glad you're feeling a little better after the upsetting news.

  18. Thank you dear! I'm better! And Easter Holidays start in Greece now... yay! :)
