Chocolate and Coffee

Post by Trollperle on Sat Dec 19, 2015 8:57 am


I have a fun sign that says „Whatever the question is, chocolate is the answer“ - and I think there is a deep truth in this Smile There are days that while they might not be entirely turned around by just chocolate, chocolate might just still be the little dot on the i that makes it all a bit better I love you

The background for my current „Chocolate and Coffee“-bracelet on this photo is a page from a daily calender I have and it says „Do not live in haste! To know how to spread things means to know how to savor them“ - quite true, I think (though with chocolates it might be very difficult Wink ).

Beautiful bracelet Very Happy If I had to choose just two colours for a bracelet it would be brown and cream Very Happy But I could live without chocolate I don't like it. Rolling Eyes

Ah, that is perfect!

I'm also in the camp of "chocolate can fix a lot of things" Laughing Although I'm not very good about spreading out chocolate.

Niceday, you don't like chocolate? Smile You are a rare bird!
I don't like perfumes and fragrances, so I guess I am rare, too.

I started collecting beads for a coffee and chocolate bracelet right from the beginning, long before Troll came out with a coffee cup bead or the Chocolate and Cream glass kit. Too bad they are retiring that kit.

I can't find a photo of my bracelet, so I must not have posted it. Add another thing to the pile of items waiting to be photographed!

Trollperle, the stripey dark bead above your gold bead --- is that a wood bead? from what brand?

Craving chocolate now.

Thank you my dears Smile - This bracelet is an all time favourite of mine. It does change a bit here or there all the time and yet in essence it stays the same and I love to wear it in all seasons (I also love to eat chocolate no matter what the season Wink )

LindaJo, yes, it is a wooden bead, one of the wooden beads Nadia used to make. I think it is rosewood.

Nice combo I love you
I like chocolate, but only a little piece with my espresso after lunch. I am not the person capable to eat a full bar...

Excellent combo. To prevent that I am running to the kitchen to have some chocolate, I am eating carrots while I am admiring your bracelet.

Although chocolate does taste much better rendeer

Okay, here's my coffee bracelet as it stands now.
(The first bead is a goat, to celebrate the goats that ate coffee beans and surprised their goatherd.)

You are right of course! I just watched „Frozen“ the other day and there it carrot eating involved plus it is healthy, too, but still to eat a carrot and forego chocolate shows a lot of character! I love you
