Basketball wedges!

This weekend was just what I needed and I almost felt guilty for enjoying it so much.  I did two paintings but I can't share them with you just yet as they are gifts :) I ate Thai food twice, went into at least 3 thrift shops.  I had a nice conversation with my Mom who is currently being spoiled by my step Dad from the comfort of her bed.  I didn't take any blog photos this weekend so these are from last week when the sun blessed us with her presence.
 I'm also wearing two new items, these killer pink tropical leggings by Cristi at Kiss Me Kitty
and my crazy new sneaker wedges!  I love them both so much!!!!

 The dress was a gift from our very own rock and roller Helga!

Ash has been annoying me a lot less these days and it's not pitch black when I finish work anymore. I try and appreciate the little things.  What small things are you grateful for these days?

Fantastic wedges - the perfect compromise for you between heels and cool sneakers!
I'm delighted to read that you had an indulgent weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. Also to hear your mum is being well cared for.
Sun, I miss it. I'm grateful for being able to walk the boys to school without getting soaked, and for unexpected freebies - more to come on that soon!

You're looking super cute, and Ash looks super snooty to me (in a good way!).

I love the wedges!! I have been lusting after a pair of studded black wedge sneakers for months now and I just don't like the knock-off versions so I am holding off.
Can't wait to see the art!! Nice thing being spoiled isn't it?? You're mom must be soaking up the love and attention! lolzz

Even if it's raining you always bring the rainbow!!! I'm always more convinced that in Portland and here the weather is quite similar, I couldn't take any photo yet because it's raining since early morning!!
Those wedges are something I'm seriously considering for months, you completely sold them to me, especially in pink, I wish I can easily find them!
These Kiss me Kitty leggings are stunning, the print is fabulous, lovely for Helga's striped dress!!
Can't wait to see your secret paintings!!!
I love you more than lovely sunny days!!!

Oh, those leggings. I LOVE them!!!

So glad you enjoyed our sunny weather. I'm afraid we won't be getting much of it this week. Although, at least it's not cold or raining, so maybe it'll just be overcast (fingers crossed).

Simple things are the things that replenish our hearts....

I'm delighted you had a great weekend, home alone and that your Mum's being spoiled!
Those wedges are gorgeous! I had some similar in the 1990s which I wore to death but the ones I've seen these days are only ever in boring old black or white. Those a re rainbow coloured, perfect for our Rainbow Princess! Love Cristi's tropical leggings and Helga's perfect frock! You look like a ray of sunshine.
Ash is gorgeous, can I have her?
Love you! xxxxxxx

Melanie said...

Wedge runner...I've had my eye out for them lately too. But yours are a fave so far. Especially with the leggings your talented friend made. Your colour means everything. That's what I'm grateful for lately - colour in the rain.

pastcaring said...

How can you be annoyed by that beautiful cat? I'll fight Vix for her, she's a beauty! (Vix would win, btw!)
You look so perfectly Krista-fied in that striped dress and the amazing tropical leggings and your new shoes!
Yay for sunshine, for relaxing weekends, for being creative, for your mum's continued recovery, and for appreciating the small stuff!
The teacher whose class I help in at school called me "her Wednesday morning saviour" today - and I really appreciated that compliment! xxxx

Ivy Black said...

I love 'em...those wedges are fab and those leggings are making me wish for warmer, brighter weather even more.
I'm grateful for brighter evenings, a bit of sunshine when it comes.

Cristi said...

I am so happy to hear your Mom is getting spoiled-Moms deserve that, especially ones in recovery!

Looking forward to seeing your paintings-can't wait to see what you did!:) Glad you had a great time taking care of yourself.

The small things I'm grateful for...those little kitty faces giving me a happy distraction. Seeing you look so cute, and bringing to life and styling so well, something I created.;)

AND, of course-all the millions of cat videos on the web...;)

Misfits Vintage said...

I tried on some leopard print sequinned wedge sneakers last week and thought of you!!! You are gorgeous as always - and I'm so glad you had such a lovely weekend. Stripes + Florals = Fabulous!

How crazy are those sneaker wedges?! Love them... they are just what I would expect to see you in :-)
Ash is gorgeous and aptly named!

Nat said...

PS I am grateful these days for the good life I have - all the small things that add up to a huge wonderful :-) So many people I know having such tough times that I feel very lucky with all the good things I have ...

Bella Q said...

I'm grateful how well you rock pink stripes. And that the weather is getting better. And that I live a fortunate life. I crave your company- hope I can peek at your royal pinkness soon.
