Favourite Thing On A Friday - The Real Deal

So here it is, my first "Favourite Thing On A Friday"!

I posted yesterday about a new idea I've had.

To post each Friday about my favourite thing for the week.  I decided to call it Favourite Thing On A Friday.  Punchy.

I also decided I'd love to see what other people have been enjoying and wanted to give people the option to join in.  Thus was Favourite Thing On a Friday born.

  You can read all about it by clicking HERE .

If you want to join in, link up by entering your blog name and URL address in the link tool at the bottom of this post, that way, a link to your blog will show up here letting people know you're joining in, so they can come and visit.  Then write a blog post about your Favourite Thing On A Friday with a link back to Mimi and Tilly, letting your readers know what you're linking up with.  There may be some teething problems with this as I've not done a link up like this before.  (Who am I kidding?  This might be a little bit of car-crash blogging happening right here, right now.)  If there are problems, let me know and I'll sort them out as soon as I've figured out what in the David Dickenson I'm doing.

There's also a little blog button that I sat making until 2am this morning.  When I get an idea...








If you'd like to, you're very welcome to put this button in your sidebar with a link back to this post letting people know they can join in with Favourite Thing On A Friday.

So here goes....

My

Favourite Thing On A Friday

is....



My glass pendant from the royal palace in Monaco.  Which I thought I'd lost.























I bought this pendant years ago from a jeweller's situated in the grounds of the royal palace in Monaco.  I know that sounds a little bit weird but it's true.  At the top of the hill in Monaco, the royal palace is surrounded by little cobbled streets that have a range of different boutiques along them.  I managed to sniff out the jeweller's at twenty paces (being able to do that is a skill I'm very proud of) and went inside and found this pendant.  When my significant other (Steve) and I went round Ireland with friends, I wore it every day.  This pendant and I  have been places together.  Cannes, Dublin, Sligo, Dingle Bay to say hello to Fungie the dolphin, London, Liverpool, a hot tub in a field.  I was so sad when I couldn't find it.

But...

I found this beauty again this week having not been able to lay my hands on it for a good few months.

Oh happy day!

I sat in the garden and gave it a good buff up with my polishing cloth.  The sun shone all over it making the colours glisten.

It reminded me of these...

















Jewellery and Jelly Tots.

My Favourite Thing On A Friday.

What's yours?

  6. What a great idea! I love the pendant - perfectly pink!

    I think my favourite thing today is that you reminded me of Jelly Tots - such a childhood favourite. I don't even think that you can get them here in Sydney anymore!

    Thanks for sharing, Stephie x
