Sneakers with motive

Oh help. I just ruined my favourite pair of sneakers. I messed them all up while painting my godchild's babyroom. Yes, this summer, in two months, I became the godmother of two gorgeous little babyboys. They both are sooo cute!
So, I must admit, it was not my best idea of the day wearing these sneakers, but they were so comfy I have just forgotten to change them. And look at the poor things now...

Any other woman would be happy, this is defenitely a good reason to go shoehunting. But not me. I'm quite difficult when it comes to shoes.
This is the woman talking who once bought the same pair of sneakers twice because she liked them so much and was worried what to do when they would be worn out. Yes, that's me.
Don't get me wrong, I love to gaze at beautiful shoes, boots and pumps while windowshopping. But when it actually comes to my feet I have a hard time deciding. They have to look good and fit even better.

I've been looking around and it seems this fall/winter the fashion style tends to basic brown or eyecatching flashy colours, together with metallic accents.

So I'm calling up to all shoe-fashionista's in this world: help me find the perfect pair. I know it is a real challenge: comfortable, not Sporty Spice but yet feminine. Show me your ideas and I'm offering you...all my gratitude for leading me to the right pair that will walk, run and dance with me everyday again !

Autumn falls.

Well, hello there! It has been a while ...
But totally uploaded with solar energy after a fantastic summer, here we are, back at blogland.
What I do and what I see, let my interests, creative excesses and try outs guide you...
And feel free to comment, suggest, question or inspirate...

You can see it, you can feel it...autumn is here.
To celebrate this wonderful coloured season I participated at the Seasonal Celebrations Swap at InspiredMamaMusings.
Tip: keep an eye on her blog for not missing the winter edition!

So autumn is all about cocooning and cosyness and trying to handle the first chillyness.
Feeling melancholic when looking back to the past summer... and gathering ideas for the upcoming holidays ...
Seeing those warm colours of red/golden sunlight through the trees, coloured leaves, candlelight...
Hearing the wind outside and rain against the window, feet curled up on the sofa, accompanied by some good reading matter and hot chocolate.
Soft and warm turtle necks and woolen scarfs... Making walks through the fields and forest and collecting autumn leaves.
The sweet scent of homemade stew or cake...
You'll recover these things in the package I composed for my swap partner. Tammy, I hope you liked it!

Yes, that actually is a self-knitted scarf you see over there. My first attempt at knitting.
With a little help of this knittingcourse. It is written in dutch but with clear pictures of the basic knitting stitches. Very useful for a knitting layperson as this one.
And you, are you in the mood for fall?
