MATCHING....
















Well, I know we aren't quite, but we will be, by the time my colour has had its first shampoo tomorrow.

I never did buy the flimsy-handled bag I fancied a few weeks ago, but could not resist this sequinned number yesterday. The trouble is, I got it home and realised that I did not have a single pair of shoes that would "do" with it. So today ....



We are doing rather well for panettone, as Gina and family turned up earlier bearing this strawberry-flavoured one. [I do like this year's pretty tins.] All are gratefully received and I think we'll be having griddled slices with quince preserve for breakfast for quite some time! Italians, when they enter the flat, amuse me as always, asking the usual question at this season: "Are all your cards from this year?!"

I think this post should be labelled 'women's problems'...

Oh, I understand something quite different that you don't want to know about by "women's problems", DD!

Italian shoes are by far the best... we knew this in the early 80s before it all went Gucci Gucci Gucci (!!!)

Thank you for the photo. Two lovely girls, you must turn heads when you go for a walk.
Now those are some seriously great looking shoes and handbag. Of course you had to get them for your Christmas social life.

Have you acquired the sweets for breakfast habit, Italian style?

There's nothing like Italian shoes, boots, and handbags! I brought purses for my daughters last year and boots for me. Love Love Love them all. Lucky you!

Buon Natale, P!

I do know what "women's problems" are, Welshcakes!

And while we're on the subject, you've reminded me of the occasion when I counted my mother's shoes (I was young at the time, and reckless). She was absolutely livid when she found out. After that, we called her Mrs Marcos.
