Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries

Since tomorrow marks the summer soltice, I thought I'd celebrate with one of my favourite summertime fruits and a song that sums up the meaning of life. These lyrics, written by Lew Brown, and first published in 1931 remind us to live in the moment:

Life is just a bowl of cherries
Don't take it serious,
Life's too mysterious
You work,
You save,
You worry so
But you can't take your dough
When you go, go, go

So keep repeating "It's the berries."
The strongest oak must fall
The sweet things in life
To you were just loaned
So how can you lose
What you've never owned

Life is just a bowl of cherries
So live and laugh, aha!
Laugh and love
Live and laugh,
Laugh and love,
Live and laugh at it all!

Also to celebrate the season, as well as The French Circus' one-year anniversary on July 3, I'm offering my first give-away!

Please enter to win these fleur de lis and garnet earrings by simply leaving a comment telling me what you'd like to see more of either on the blog or in terms of jewelry design. I will draw a name at random and announce the lucky winner on July 4.

Bon chance, mes amis!


  1. What fun! Love the lyrics and cherry pictures :) As for counting me in your giveaway, yes please!

  2. Congratulations on your First Anniversary!
    You're all that and a bowl of cherries!
    Your jewelry designs are very inspiring. I think I first came here through a blog mention from one of your other followers, Junkin' Julie.
