They Don't Call it a "Mom Blog" for Nothing

Well ladies, I'm finally back and I've got something to brag about!

All girls love receiving jewellery, right? Even the most serious marriage-eschewing feminist wouldn't say no to a nice string of pearls, or a diamond-encrusted brooch. It's in our DNA!

So today, when a very important man in my life came home with a little something sparkly for me, I was obviously thrilled. I've been wearing it all day:


Yeah, that's right. RB made this beaded masterpiece for me in nursery school today. And it's one of a kind, so don't even think about trying to score one for yourself.

In all seriousness, considering the state of his fine motor skills a year ago, this is something special indeed!

I'll be wearing it with this chic accompaniment:


Firstborn made this bracelet for me for Mother's Day 2009. The instructions were to pick beads in Mom's favourite colours. But since Firstborn didn't know my favourite colours, he went with the most likely and obvious choice: the colours of Spider-Man. He's always thinking.

Anyone can look good in diamonds and pearls. Only the truly stylish can rock plastic.

That is indeed gorgeous jewellery! There is nothing more special than a gift from your children made with such love. That's totally sweet. I love the Spidey-colours! :)

I love plastic! I often rock a beaded choker in every colour imaginable along with a pendant necklace, the pendant is made of the shrinky plastic with a very stylish drawing:)

I adore the green and orange in your new piece! Hurray for kids!

I have some of the jewelry Maya made me and I have to say that it is adorable. Even though I rarely wear jewelry I do make an effort to wear the stuff she makes me. It's the least I could do seeing as I ignore her most of the rest of the time. :)
