A week in a post

Finding a red rose of St George's Day can be problematic

I've just had a long week off work and I could have drafted a incredibly long post of what I did on my week off.  However, after having some rotten dental treatment and a migraine this week, I thought I'd keep it simple and use pictures more than words.  I'm trying to improve my photo-taking skills, this time last year I relied on fun cameras so going digital is taking its time!

So the first thing I learnt this week was . . .  my friend Linzi gets more excited for St Georges Day than Christmas.  As soon as her birthday in February has passed, she starts planning for the big day with her outfit planned with military precision.
navy shorts, vintage style blouse and the red rose was the look of the day

nude heels from Primark

I discovered that . . .  'tractor' soles were a walking sensation 

Nude lipsy heels
I bought these nude heels back in January and I haven't had chance to wear them till now.  As well as looking really, really good, they are also surprising comfortable to walk on.  The tractor sole seems to give extra comfort but walking in them does give a really weird sensation almost like a spongy feel on the balls of your feet.  Its the only way I can describe it.

I realised that . . . you are never to old to have an Easter Egg!
My friend Jo surprised me with an Easter Egg which had a double bonus as I got a Gleek mug as well as chocolate.

I now know that . . .  there's a place for everything.

something old, something new
I'm conscious of clutter and trying to reduce the amount of waste you can go through.  This includes buying things for the house or my wardrobe.  But sometimes I can't resist those vintage treasures you can spot in a charity shop.  I bought this glass leaf bowl for £1.50 and didn't have a clue what to do with it.  Finally I decided that it was a nice idea to store my collection of vintage and new rings.

I love those tractor shoes, I can't believe you didn't wear them until last week. I'd have been gardening in them just to show them off.
Thanks for visiting, I'm following you now. xxx

Pop Champayne - I didn't realise how many rings I'd got stashed away until I put them in the bowl. I hope you enjoyed your Easter egg. xx

Christina - thanks for the tips and I will definitely check out Camilla's shoes.xx

Victoria - I'll keep an eye out at my local Charity shop for bowl for you. My friend's works quite near our Primark so it able to pop in and get some good finds from there.xx

Make Do - thanks, isn't it pretty and I agree, tractor soles are the way forward! xx

Vintage Vix - Hi and welcome! Do you know I have been staying at the shoe box waiting to wear those heels and am desperate to plan another outfit to wear them again! xx
