new shoes & paper

my mom found some old shoes she used to where in the 80s & gave them to me. i think they are quite cute!
i visited an art store that sells some supplies for handmade books. it was on my regular bus route to school so i took an earlier bus to stop by before school. i didn't buy any book making supplies, but i did buy some beautiful paper! those leaves are shimmering silver & gold, even though it doesn't look like it from the photo : ) i've been using my time on the train when i go to school for writing in my moleskine. it's almost all filled up! i'll have to start my third one soon : )

i'm so glad my internet is working now. i can finally get caught up on all your lovely blogs!

thank you for all of the well wishes! i'm happy i'm feeling much better & practically 100% (minus a few coughs & sneezes!).

i hope everyone has a great week : )


  1. Brilliant!

    I have some shoes almost exactly the same as those, I love them!. Thanks for the comment, I had to draw him!.. he's just so beautiful!


  2. Glad you're feeling well! :)

    Love those shoes. My mom also likes to gift me with her old shoes since we tend to be about the same size. It's a wonderful thing!

  3. Adorable shoes and paper :) Aww I miss you. I love stumbling across new little stores with cute things. I was just in Ashland Oregon and went to a few.

  4. I love this post. You have an eye for simple yet beautiful things. Very cool. :)

  5. I love your new(?) shoes!
    I really really love those kind, sort of like loafers with shoe laces? I think the ones with heels are called Oxford?

    Does it really have the skin of a mole? eww.
    Isn't that paper sort of thick? I believe you can do great things with it. Ooo sounds cool! I think I just talked to myself into finding one. I'm going to Dallas, TX on Nov. 20th (skipping school and missing New Moon with my friends ): ) to visit an university. The last time I was there, I went to a huge antique store that had everything from vintage clothes, records, Snow White sheet music, chunky rhinestone jewelry, to 1950's class rings and country club pins. I wonder if they have something like that. P:

    Oh and what kind of camera do you use? o:

  6. Oooh! I see your pretty date stamp too! :D isn't it just the greatest! :)

    I LOVE your pretty shoes! They look AWESOME :D

    My Moleskine is filling up as well! luckily I have about 3 of them to fill up! hahahah :D

    Have a fabulous day darling xx

  7. Love the shoes! They are very cool.
