Gentle Readers and Dear friends I do thank you for all your help with my Blogger problem... I am still trying to fix it... I am really happy that it is not just me and my ineptitude with computers that is the cause.
Today's week end wrap up post is gonna be a short one. I forgot to show the bits I picked up last weekend while out doing our regular estate/consignment/Goodwill shopping....
... although not much was acquired, what I did get I was pretty excited about. From l to r - I found this great coffee table book of Royal Portraiture by Beaton - published in 1988 it looks brand slap new - and for a few $'s worth every penny. When it was published 20+ years ago the cost was $45 so I was a winner with that one. Then there is the small majolica milk jug - mid circa 1840-60 - English... $4 - how on earth could I pass on that. Usually these type of jugs have identical scenes on each side, this one has different scenes on each side - one side is a hunting scene the other is a gypsy camp scene - these silly things go for some big bucks and as I always say - you gotta know just a ittle bit more than the next guy to make it pay!! Then the last thing was a hard back copy of "The Boleyn Inheritance." I just finished "The Constant Princess" and thoroughly enjoyed it - I really have avoided Philippa Gregory books thinking they would be like historical Harlequin Romances, but to my great surprise "TCP" turned out to be a super de duper read and this one is also turning out to be a great read. I really like that she lends a voice to the secondary characters in history. There are a couple of estate sales out there for tomorrow so who knows what I'll find!!
Now, regarding Today's Post title.. you know I love me my Chucks - and I have way too many pairs of them, well, I certainly needed another!! So I went surfing on the net and found some on sale at Sears - slam bam slap me ma'am - and they were bought - and arrived yesterday.... and I got them on right now ......
......and Rico hates them!! I always have my camera with me so I just took this snap (how ugly is our carpet at work??) I think they are really orange, but they are called "Nectarine." I often have a hard time finding them in my size - not that I have an odd sized foot - it is a 10 - what it is, is a very common size and usually the 10's are all gone - or only high tops are left - I do not like high tops.... sweaty ankles, don't you know!! Like I don't like to wear long sleeve shirts - I hate anything around my wrists or ankles - I am just wierd that way!! Another tid bit about me that you couldn't live without!
That's about it for the week sports fans. Thanks again for stopping by and for you great comments!!! Do stop again.
