seeing red

well thank you for all the well wishes on the crankies and for the lovely response to my new patterns. i have a lot of ideas bouncing in my brain and already have started on a new set of patterns but will have to wait a little while to show you the final products. on my few days off from the "everyday" i went and got me some new shoes. oh i love red, but i was a little scared that i wasn't going to be able to "pull them off".
wore them to church and well, i felt SASSY.
husband wanted to know which brothel i was from and i told him i came from the "you can sleep on the couch tonight" brothel.
that's the last time he mentioned anything about them.

after i purchased my red shoes, i felt really happy and excited about RED anything. so i made a quick little project and gave katie a little bit of red too.
fell in love how her new hair clip looks on her, and yup, you guessed it i'm smack in the middle of making a bazillion of them to match any outfit she may have or will have or could have.
also making a few for myself to put on as accessories on purses, and anywhere i can put it on.
*****
in other news.
i'm almost done with the table cloth skirt tutorial.
so watch for that in the next few days.

the husband is off of work for a week, so we are going to be working a lot on the house. and make a small trip, but i promise to get that skirt tutorial up before we go.
so put away your stinky eye cause it's coming.

Your new shoes are making me smile;)!!! I L-O-V-E them!!! Where on earth did you find them? Super super cute!!! As for your husband's comment...I'm sure that what he really ment to say was how beautiful you looked and that he was sure that every other man would be jealous of him...I'm sure of it;)

I have been looking for candy apple red shoes for about 4 years now. My feet are ginormous, so either (a) I can't find any that fit or (b) they are an off-color (like marroon or coral or something). THOSE ARE AWESOME. And if they are not outrageously expensive, I (seriously) am interested in where you purchased them. I love how red sasses up any outfit.

I like the red shoes...but LOVE the hair clip. Would you do a tutorial or a sell a pattern? I think it would be fun as a pin for teachers! We have to work on the lack of hair for my little one!

I think I'd be giving that husband a lesson on things to say to keep Mumma happy!! What a ratbag saying that.

L-O-V-E the new shoes. I've been looking for some cute espadrilles, and though I, too, love red, I really need a pair in white. So far, no luck, except in styles that are sigh I'm sure to twist an ankle.

You can pull of anything my dear. The shoes and Katie's hairbow area maah-ve-lous.

Love the shoes! I have pink ones I wear during the summer and darker red ones for the winter. I love having sassy feet!

V and Co. said...

the shoes are made by "dream" i got them off a trailer that stopped in front of my grocery store, so i'm pretty sure you can't get them the same place i got them, but if you look up the maker i'm sure you can find places that sell them.
they were $24.
and yes i'm lds.

MarshaMarshaMarsha said...

Hi! I found your blog through the A Woman Inspired Conference site. I've enjoyed your posts, pictures and beautiful creations. Oh, and the red toenails! I've been wearing red but now I think I'm going to switch to a pearl-y color. That way when it chips, you can't really tell-- because I get too lazy to touch up when it's flip-flop weather!
