There. There it is. A bright red handbag. Love it! It's actually too small to be a decent cookie jar, so maybe it's more of a candy jar kind of thing. I don't care--whatever it's supposed to be it's nifty.
Sooo....I love winter. I love wearing cozy sweaters and drinking lots of hot beverages and knitting afghans that lay across my lap and keep me warm as I make them grow. I don't even mind the snow--it makes the world pretty. But today, I was getting ready for work and felt very m'eh about my wardrobe choices. I wanted to be cozy but I felt the need for some funk. So I donned these:
My sister told me she would kill me if she saw me ever wear these in a season other than summer. She would actually like to kill me any time I wear them. She haaaaates these shoes. Last summer I was in Target and saw them--they were pretty cheap at $25, but I felt it would be too whimsical of a purchase. A few weeks later I was in Target during my lunch break and thought that if they were still there (they had only had one pair in my size) I would buy them because obviously they were meant for me. They were there and at half price (to which my sister said "Bee, things on clearance are there for a reason"). I snatched them up, and it took a lot for me not to put them on the second I got in my car (the fact that I had on a purple shirt helped--even I won't unmatch that much). I'm pretty sure they have magic powers. They're extremely comfortable and I feel like I float when I wear them. I haven't had a bad day when I've worn these shoes.
Not fun: making curtains. Measure. Fold. Pin. Press. Measure. Fold. Pin. Press. Stitch. Repeat. At least I get something totally unique out of the process.
Fun: Meream, over at Bored and Crafty gave me a little mention and a link on her blog because I sent her photos of an antique teapot I found (she collects novelty teapots and has a few I want to steal). She's in the Philippines so that was kind of neat. And a girl I work with makes cards and jewelry and has a blog to showcase her work (which is beautiful--so detailed!) and gave me a little shout there at Notions By Teres. Check them out for some lovelies.
