if you throw it all away

I once held her in my arms
She said she would always stay
But I was cruel
I treated her like a fool
I threw it all away.

Once I had mountains in the palm of my hand
And rivers that ran through ev'ry day
I must have been mad
I never knew what I had
Until I threw it all away.

Love is all there is, it makes the world go around
Love and only love it can't be denied
No matter what you think about it
You just won't be able to do without it
Take a tip from one who's tried.

So if you find someone that gives you all of her love
Take it to your heart, don't let it stray
For one thing that's certain
You will surely be a-hurtin'
If you throw it all away.

different like coco

"Different Like Coco by Elizabeth Mathews is a picture book which chronicles the life of the woman who invented the little black dress. Simple ink and watercolor illustrations wrap the text which is longer than the average picture book. There are elegant touches throughout- some of Chanel's beautiful work are used on the inside jacket (such as "How many cares one lose when someone decides not to be something but someone") and there are small sketches of details unique to Chanel such as keeping her dressmaking scissors attached to a long string of pearls around her neck. Mathews deftly covers the decades of Chanel's life with the right amount of detail and the drawings convey her strong personality."

Coco Chanel is such an inspiration. She was named as one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century. The children's book, Different Like Coco, teaches young girls that being unique can be a great thing and that you should always stay true to yourself. I can't get enough of these books! The illustrations are precious too! =)

a few pages from the book:
