Eighteen pair......and counting!!!

Regular followers of my BLOG would be aware of my passion for all things "old and prairie" and in particular my fetish for old victorian boots, about which I have written on a couple of occasions.
Well.......I have been on the scout for some for a couple of my customers and happened to come across a few lovely pairs....four to be precise....however as it seems to be with everything else in my life...this was not to be without
The dilemma this do I sell them when they are just so perfectly prim & prairie and especially when I DON'T have a set like that in my collection???

We are all so busy nowdays aren't we ? least I know I am..... and most days we are in such a hurry that we forget about the simple pleasures that life offers us.
I have been so busy lately that I haven't had a chance to do anything, let alone pop up a post of any kind. So..... I thought that I would sit down this evening, after having spent the day doing all of my oustanding chores (and boy were there alot of them), and jot down a few "simple things " that I am thankful for from today....they all cost little or nothing, but mean alot!
.....a short sleep in (no work today)... .....hugs..... .....sunshine..... .....laughter..... .....the smell of freshly washed clothes..... email from a friend.... .....a phone call from mum... .....another from my sister in-law..... ....looking at my garden..... ....the satisfaction of a tidy house.... ...a cuddle with my dog and cat.... ...and lastly but by no means least....the phone call I received today from my nie…
