silver surfer

The b-day fest has caught up with me and I'm nearly typing with my nose touching the keys.

Before I get the sense to go to bed, I'll answer a couple of questions on a very important topic, the purse and shoes in yesterday's post, ha ha.

They're what I wore to my birthday festivities. I got the shoes the day before at Jet Rag for $18. They're the Nordstrom brand. I have no problem with used shoes, but I don't suppose everybody is willing to stick their tootsies in other people's castoffs.

The purse, which I love because it's so Spacely Sprockets, I bought last year at the Rose Bowl swap meet. It was lying on the ground amid an array of odd items, so I knew it'd go on the cheap. The seller wanted 10 bucks; I gave him 8.

I almost never have matching handbags and shoes -- Are we still doing that, anyway? Or have the fashion dictators ruled it passe? -- because I don't think about it, but I like my little silver set. Thanks, guys, for asking about it.

Later this week, I've got a reaallly good post coming up. I'm excited about it, and I hope you all will like it too.

I am going to steal that design on the bag handles.
I could never wear used shoes....I have funny curved feet and couldn't even wear my sisters' shoes, in fact if any of them wore mine, that was it. Never felt the same.
I do buy used bags off the 'bay, only a certain brand.
Funny, can't wear used clothing either....just something wierd about me....because the 'clothes' just weren't mine from the beginning...LOL. I gladly give them away though.
BUT, used sewing machines...LOL...any day....just got another €1.50 one...LOL.

Enjoy the rest of your birthday month.
Can't wait to see what exciting post you have for us.
