FANCY SHOES!

Hello everyone!  Glad to be here, have missed and love you all!!!

Wow, I'm gone for a bit and come back to blog changes!!!  It took me a while to figure out how to get here... lol!!!  But, I made it!

In addition to that, I guess there's a lot of truth in the saying, "...a woman's work is never done".  Being as busy as I've been, my house (hubby and Buster) went neglected, so I have some catching up to do here at home as well.  Gee, I can't believe how much work caught up with me around here... first one thing than another, huh?  Anyway, I'm well and my aunt is well -- and kicking... lol!!!

I see I have a few new followers in my absence, great!!!  Hello, to you and it's wonderful to have you in the family!  I do look forward to getting better acquainted!

I have a really quick and fun project I wanted to share with you today.  Having a small break has made me want to have some fun kick up my heels, and what better way to do that with a cute pair of shoes!  So here's what I did:


Another view:


Aren't these fun!!!  Hope you like em'!!!  Before I leave, last month I'd promised you pictures of my aunt's 90th birthday -- bet you thought I forgot!  Well, they're a month late, but as promised here's my aunt on her 90 years young big b-day:




Now I've gotta get back to the family I have here to do some catching up, then on to house chores, but I'll sneak in a few more visits later!

Hugs to you all, and I'll be seeing you!!!

P.S.  Still some areas on the new blog layout I haven't explored yet so if anyone has run into any difficulty(ies), please let me know.  Also, let me know what you think of the new layout.

Amazing shoes!

Susan said...

Yay Audrey!! I love the new look here! Looking good! And I know exactly what you mean when you said you were away a short time and when you get on blogger it changed. The exact thing happened to me and I'm still trying to figure it out. But so far I kind of like it....so far.

Your Auntie is so lovely! And so lucky to have such a wonderful family. And even though your hubby and Buster may feel a little left out I am sure they understand. Ok, maybe not Buster. Ok, maybe not hubby either, but it did sound good right? ;) lol! I like the pretty shoes you made. I bet it felt so nice to craft again. I have to see the newest post now!

The shoes are fabulous! Even more so is your aunt. She is aging gracefully & beautifully. Does NOT look 90 at all. She is a lovely lady. I see good looks runs in the family.
Stay well honey bun!
