I DID IT!!!

After a week of walking past the shop gazing at the shoes (well sandals, actually) I finally went in and bought them.  This is a small record for me as I have been known to mather for weeks and weeks and weeks!!!  Of course I now have to get past the 'they're too nice to wear - I'll keep them for best' bit!!!  Another thing I have to come to terms with is slinging the old sandals!!  This is SO, SO hard to do for me!!!!  Is it cause I'm a war baby (born in 1943) or is it cause I'm just plain parsimonious?!?!?!?  Send for the men in white coats!!!!

Anyway I haven't got much to show you but I did get these two done last evening.  

The purply blue one has a tag on saying it belongs to 'Jane' and is made from a yarnplayer skein that was in the 'oh my gosh' package from Sue Anna.  I would be willing to make one like it if anybody wanted a similar.  The browny one (knitty gritty is the name of the thread, I think) will be the start of my 'travelling stash' of brooches to take with me over the pond. 

The purply one is also made from a yarnplayer skein that was in the oh my gosh package.

I think we need a picture of the new sandals! I have been known to "visit" things for many days before buying them; it drives John round the bend, he says "for goodness sake, if you want it, buy it" - because otherwise I waste so much petrol in driving back and forth!
So I do understand.
Litmus test is going to the shop one day and finding the item has been moved, or even worse, bought by someone else!That tends to make the decision very simple.
Give yourself 48 hours - if you still want it after that time, then you must immediately make the purchase.

I'm the same way when it comes to buying something for myself. I'll ponder it over for so long that they usually don't have my size by the time I decide to get it. LOL!! Old shoes are just comfortable and hard to give up.

Love the colors in these and you chose a really pretty one to tag for yourself. That's the one I would have chosen too. :)

Oh, I do like the purply one! Maybe that's because it reminds me of the one I have. ; )
