PINK SHOES

My Son Eric got me these shoes to match my kitchen curtains. Now I have a pink kitchen
and years ago he bought  pink eyelet material in Brazil and I made kitchen curtains with it.
 And here this week he took me shopping and bought me these shoes. click on them and see they look
just like my curtain material.  How exciting is that?




HAPPY EASTER TO ALL

These daffodils are a sure sign of Spring and Summer . The sun is shinning great today . Hope you all are having a great day and doing something you will enjoy.
