Wall walking and little peeks

Hello there,my visits here seem so infrequent lately and I bow my bad blogging head in shame...please forgive me.This wondrous instrument with which I speak to you through has been extremely poorly as of late (she got one of those nasty computer viruses which thinks it's a wet gremlin and kept multiplying!)fingers crossed;she went through an intensive detox and is feeling all youthful and spritely now! 

Thought I'd show you my 'wall walking' boots(pictured above)I've had these Italian leather boots for around ten years now and I really adore them.Just one catch..they're a size too small.I considered all my options but have resigned myself to wearing them lying down...and taking little meanders through the forest of my imaginings.Can you remember when you used to lie on your bed and hold your feet up and pretend you were walking up the walls and on the ceiling?Bet you still do it don't you..if not;give it a go(wearing your wall walking shoes or boots of course!)

Here are some peeks of what I've been working on..I'm up to my eyes with bags of all shapes and sizes.

And here are some of the hand painted silhouettes on shrink plastic that will adorn the bags.I've been have great fun and can't wait to show you the finished collection!

On a final note; I thought I'd just point you in the direction of two gorgeous blogs I have discovered recently. LiliPopo and supercutetilly are both very talented needle loving ladies and sell they're beautiful work on Folksy also.Take a peek.
Take Care

Lol...I have never tried the walking on the wall thing but think I may have to have a go....was just wondering why you bought the boots to small, did you just love them that much lol. The hand painted silhouettes are beautiful and I am looking forward to seeing the finished pics. Thank you for the mention too, it's much appreciated.
