Show Off Your Cottage Monday

It’s cold and cloudy out there, small clouds have blown together and the sun just can’t get through them… its mitten weather again; or so it seems, but I have found the cutest skirt in anticipation to the change of seasons, and I love the blue irises in the garden, and can't wait for the daffodils and tulips to bursts their buds open, and of course, I'm so head over heels over my new shoes!
I love pointy toe pumps… who wouldn't! Even the simplest outfit appear glamorous when paired with some elegant looking pointy toe dress pumps... I can never have enough pointy toe shoes, so when I saw these leather lizard-look pumps at my favorite thrift store the other day, they were candy to my eyes. The mark reads “Bandolino” but I’m not sure it’s authentic. Well, I don’t mind that… I follow my heart, and not the actual value of the object, when it comes to purchasing something at the thrift store. If I love it (and can afford it), I buy it... I love it even more when the price is only $6.99.
And then…. of course, I saw these gorgeous jeweled summer sandals, and they had my name written all over them… “buy me buy me”—they screamed! Now, that wouldn't have been nice leaving them there, would it?
Life is good!

  5. Hi Cielo:)

    Greetings and good wishes:)

    Lovely shoes and sandals and goreous photos with a wonderful write up. To be happy in little things of life. Childlike happiness. Simplicity which is the hallmark of happiness and contentment.

    The other day I bought a few plants and in my over enthusiasm I put too much fertiliser in the pot. The next day I found to my dismay all the plants dead. How could I be so careless? Any way I learnt my lesson the hard way:)

    Have a nice day Cielo:)

  6. Thank you for hosting "Show Off Your Cottage Monday". What fun! Oh, and I love your shoes. I have always loved shoes since I was a little girl. Maybe I watched "The Wizard of Oz" too many times. Oh well, the right pair of shoes just sets my soul free, and I suspect it does for you too.

  18. Hello Everyone!

    i have been looking to figure out a place to start the acai berry free trial & was wondering if anybody had some opinions on whether or not the stuff works for dieting? So far this is the only [url=]article[/url] I've been able to come across that seemed realistic for the goals I have. Opinions?

  19. G'eve Cielo ~ I love everything about you & your writes. The sandals are so lovely. You make all enchanting.

    It was so warm here the past 2 days I got to wear sandals & was delighted ... painted toes. Love it!

    Happy spring!
    Have a beautiful week.
