A pair of Carrie shoes

The sun rushed in and my appetite for colour went through the roof. A lunch with friends on Sunday, a little retail therapy whilst visiting some new boutiques in the Old Town. Vintage plates, pretty pins, paisley cupcake cases, and a pair of Carrie shoes which were so pretty I blew my whole weekend budget on them.

How did you spend your weekend?

Also loving the cupcake cases.
This weekend was about tidying my garden,and making sure those pesky slugs are keeping off my sweet peas!

How wonderful to see the 1930s colourful chintz fashions returning after all the plain minimalism recently.

Stephanie said...

oh my goodness. amazing shoes! you're so lucky. I'm so jealous. They were worth 'blowing the budget' it seems.

Sounds like a lovely weekend.
