So I had a pair of sandals that I got pretty attached to….so much so that I find every other pair of brown sandals severely lacking. Thus it was a terrible moment when I realised that the little silver thingie on the t-bar bit had fallen off somewhere black-holish. I couldnt stand the thought of not being able to wear those comfy sandals, so I went back to the store to see if I could find another pair. They were out. I had a good cry.

|Crazy looking metal butterfly clips|
Thank goodness I got me some pull back butterfly clips the other day – I clamped those puppies in place and spent the whole day leather dye-ing (with Meltonian leather dye - this stuff is like EISHHHHHH cool) and de-funkifying some other very funky-pong leather shoes. Why do leather shoes smell so bad?
I am really stoked that I managed to rescue my old leather and wood clogs. My mom (who bought them as a present for me some 10 years agao) not-so secretively wishes that I burn them as firewood….she bought me those clogs, dont know why she hates them so much – okay I admit that maybe they were looking a little over worn and the wood part of sole is a bit shredded, and it does leak a kind of shreddy sawdust effort when I wear and walk in them. But hey, its that what gives them character right?
