Week 27 of 365 Challenge Shoe Week

Shoes, what can I say? 
Not my favorite subject as I have big feet and only really wear good sturdy walking shoes and boots. I should probably have made this week's topic bags. I have a love affair with bags, but no, I don't hoard them, I just keep looking for the perfect handbag, camera bag etc. I'm much more picky in my old age. I guess I've narrowed down what I don't like over the years and have a much clearer idea of what I want. 
Anyway, shoes, the first pic is of some sandals my daughter designed out of cardboard boxes. She even cut toe shapes on the soles. Too cute. 
The next pic down is her wearing her favorite pair of black sandals. 
After that you have my hubby's workboots three times, my favorite pair of walking boots and my daughter's flash buckled gumboots.
Not exactly high fashion wear this week but none of us do high fashion.
Next week is wood week.

Have a great week :)

Week 26 of 365 Challenge Old Week

Old week turned out to be a fun trip down memory lane. As promised I didn't make all the pics selfies but I did put in one old pic of me as a child. I also added a very old farming magazine clipping of my Father and Grandfather herding sheep on a country road in Scotland. It must be around 50 years old and is in surprisingly good shape.
The handle in one of the pics is on an old china cabinet I've bought cheap to re-purpose as our new tv cabinet/storage space. Watch this space for an update on how that goes. 
The other pics are old costume jewelry.

Next week is shoes week.

Have a great week :)

Week 25 of 365 Challenge Yellow Week

Yellow week had it's ups and downs. I kept seeing this cute little yellow Swift car I wanted to photograph but every time I had my hands full or no camera with me, so I never got it in the end. My daughter's sunflowers have grown really big this year (2nd pic). She grew them from seeds she kept from last year's flowers. The plants originally came from her old school so it's nice that she's been able to keep a part of her old school with her since we moved. A reminder of friends and good times and beautiful too.
Next week is old week. My kids probably think I'm old but I promise it won't be a week of selfies :D

Have a great week!

Week 24 of 365 Challenge "Your Season" Week

Mmmm Summer! Hot and sticky weather that I hate but full of fun and beauty too. Since the kids are on holiday we had a day at the beach and fun days in the pool. The flowers in the garden are beautiful at the moment and Grandad's budgies had had babies. A fun week all round! 
Next week is Yellow week.

Have a great week!

Week 23 of 365 Challenge Vegetable Week

Vegetable week was fairly relaxed. I just took pics as I was cooking and this is the result. It's summer here so it's all about salads. Next week it's "Your Season" week.

Have a great week!
