You know crazy cat lady? I think you do.
Well, that's not me. But I might just be turning into crazy flower lady this week...the evidence below speaks for itself.
I thrifted these mini fur-lined wellies last week for $5. Even though I knew they'd be perfect for wearing during this latest bout of wet weather, I also knew they weren't quite right as-found.
Faced with a plethora of slightly mangled and/or VB-attacked flowers, rendered unsuitable for the making of hair ornaments, and a furry popping-up lining, I suddenly knew what these wee booties wanted.
A fair bit of sewing, made easy by said protruding lining....
Some serious glitterglue-ing...(don't get me started on how much I love this stuff just now, 'kay?)
I had even to dig out some beads from my old stash to ease the pain of the sewing...
Lucky it only required some basic hand sewing...anything with a machine is out of my league.
But I got there in the end, and now have an absolutely UNIQUE pair of booties to wear around. WINNING!
No pics of me in them just yet though, today has been a 'furniture day', I have lots to show you on that front soon, but it doesn't gel with outfits posts, right?!
Speaking of footwear, VB insisted I show you this pic of her, in her latest footwear. She's waving hello to you all.
Rough pic I know, but these are her latest faves, a new Superman suit (mind you she doesn't know what Superman is yet) and a pair of 70s roller skates, bought at the WAC from theoldboathouse on Sunday. (Thanks Katherine). They only come off for the bath and bed...so far. And no...she hasn't fallen over at all. More VB footwear coming up soon....she's scoring better than me at the moment!
