The one about the shoes

I have a new obsession, unfortunately......buying shoes on eBay!

With my stupid left ankle hurting, I can't handle shoes with heels higher than about 2 1/2 inches. Last winter and again this fall I have been on the hunt for heels for church. Black pumps with a wider heel and/or a shorter heel height. Its either I hate the style, the toe is too round, too pointed, or they are too high, or too expensive.

I don't know why I didn't think of this before. So I went a little crazy last week--thank goodness for my etsy store, I had some extra money for myself. :) But they were all so cheap! I also found some casual shoes, I am picky and can't find what I need around here. ....and my gym shoes just bit it this week so I fixed that problem, too, with some new white Reebok's. So many little time! Its going to be hard this spring when I start looking for sandals. :)

I love these shoes!

Okay, so I can't wear these sandals yet, but they were only 99 cents!

The one about the Dark Knight sticker

Soooo.....I've been missing lately. Tomorrow I'll have a cool give-a-way for a book written by a friend, so stop by then, too!

My attempt at hiding my dreaded minivan underneath a white vinyl hibiscus sticker in February 2007 only lasted until the van had emissions and safety performed a few months later. Had to remove the darn thing because I had put it over the brake light. doh! I have been stickerless, unfabulous, and uncool since then.... until now. I even got the Teenage Boy to admit it was cool and I thought I saw a smile. I asked DH if he wanted one for the car and he said, "Absolutely not." lol

Been reading this book all month and enjoying it very much! I must say it's one of the best books Ive read and will be sad when it is finished. It is 928 pages long, about history and faraway places and the search through medieval documents for the original vampire, Vlad Tepes, who may still be alive. :)

The one about more Halloween

Still working on the Haunted and Mysterious book swap. This is my page in the uber-talented Cassondra Walter's tall antique photo album book! I did both front and back of this page.
Drippy beeswax. I love what it does to paper when melted with a heat gun.
