My Obsession with Red Shoes.

                                                       

                                        I was clearing out some boxes that were secretly stashed at the bottom of my wardrobe,  actually  I forgot about them.  There were about six of them, I wondered what was in each one,  I took them out and placed them on my bed in great anticipation of what I might find, I opened the first one and there was a lovely pair of red stilettos  that were about 15 years old, and I hadn't worn in ages, the second one were some flats,  third some pumps, all the boxes contained shoes of some style that I hadn't seen for an eternity. 
                                       Why have I kept all theses old shoes, I thought, when I hadn't worn any of them for years, all lined up I looked at them. Yes  they are all Red,  and  that's why I couldn't bear to part with any of them. 
                                       I had discarded all different colours and style's  down the years,    couldn't spot any of them,  not even in a line up, but these were my special collection, some you could wear today and  some absolutely  not.   Was it because each one  had a special significance?   No, I examined each one, it was the colour.  I thought about it and searched my brain for hours that evening,   it was  definitely  not my obsession  with the film the Wizard of Oz,  but my darling  Mother bought me a pair of red shinny shoes when I was 8, I loved them so much, I would have slept in them.    Since then if I buy some new shoes my eyes always goes to the red ones even before the style, or if I like the style I will always ask do you have them in Red?

I felt the same way about my red flats! I just had to have them even though they were too big. I finally donated them and I hope someone loves them as much as I did!

  Hi to you all, I was approached by the lovely and talented Sofiya Dimitrova, creator of Santi's Homemade Jewellery.  You will find her fantastic website here Santi's handmade Jewellery  Who gifted me a lovely   Earing's   and bracelet set  to review.




 The items arrived very quickly in a cute little pouch trimmed with a ribbon, I love jewellery so as you can imagine I was very excited to open it.   The earnings and bracelet  I was gifted are silver plated, wire wrapped with opal stone beads. The name Opal derives from the Sanskrit word upala which means "precious stone".  Sofiya designed this piece so it would go with any Summer outfit.
 I loved the pure but subtle tones of the blue against the silver, and that the beads change colour in the light  the earnings are wired so delicately, and with care, you can tell that Sofiya takes great pride in her work.  Each piece has been lovingly handcraft, most of her pieces are made …
