New shoes are good for the soul

Hello everyone, seasons greetings to you all! Hope you have all had a merry time, and eaten and drunk too much.


I braved the sales yesterday for a bit of a mooch around. I had in my head, from I don’t know where, a pair of shoes that I wanted. Some burgundy patent Mary Janes with a large flower on the toe. Like I said, I have no idea where this came from, and not unexpectedly, the shops did not come up trumps. However I did manage to pick up a bargain pair of shoes that I decided to accessorize.


Take one pair of brown T-Bar platform shoes (thank you Wallis, £45 reduced to £10 – bargain!):

A pair of blue corsages, half price at £5 each (quite frankly I think £5 is a lot for these let alone £10 each!):

Pin broaches to T bar, et voila…




An update on the Last Minute Necklace

I know you are all gagging to know whether or not my friend wore the last minute necklace I made when I saw her, and the good news is she did, and it looked fab!

Also, a thumbs up to Beads Unlimited, purveyors (via Hobbycraft) of the too stiff necklace cord hooks, who responded to my complaint feedback by sending me a new hook, but said that they can be a bit unwieldy so also included a trigger clasp which they thought might be better. Too late for my last minute necklace, but lovely of them all the same.


Oh and while we are doing shop shout outs I’ve just spent more than I should at Black Sheep Wools who are having a sale! Get your Rowan, Sublime and Noro fix while they’re cheap!
