Elegant black evening necklace.

I will stop wearing black when they invent a darker colour.

Pretty afternoon tea.

I had some girlfriends over for afternoon tea during the week. I decided to use my new melamine plates I had bought to go camping with. I think they looked gorgeous. The pastel colours as so soft and feminine. One of my friends said she could not believe I was going to use them to go camping. So after a bit of thought I have decided that I won't take my pretty plates camping. I will rummage through the cupboards to see what else I can find. They won't be as pretty but they will be practical.

The history of Valentines day.

Valentine's Day is named after Saint Valentine, a Catholic priest who lived in Rome in the 3rd Century. There are many stories about St Valentine and over time these stories grew into the legend we know today.
At the time of Valentine's life, many Romans were converting to Christianity, but the Emperor Claudius II was a pagan and created strict laws about what Christians were allowed to do. Claudius believed that Roman soldiers should be completely devoted to Rome and therefore passed a law preventing them from marrying. St Valentine began to marry these soldiers in secret Christian ceremonies and this was the beginning of his reputation for believing in the importance of love.
Eventually Valentine was found out and jailed for his crimes against Claudius. While imprisoned, Valentine cared for his fellow prisoners and also his jailor's blind daughter. Legend has it that Valentine cured the girl's blindness and that his final act before being executed was to write her a love message signed ‘from your Valentine'. Valentine was executed on 14 February in the year 270.

Coco Chanel quote.

“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.” ― Coco Chanel

Something blue.

What is the meaning of "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue"?
Something old represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness; something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity; and a sixpence in your shoe is a wish for good fortune and prosperity, although this remains largely a British custom.
