This was meant to be a Friday favourites post, but I got a little sidetracked when B4 and I went on a little op shop adventure to some neighbouring towns.
I will post about some of our finds a little later.
I have so many projects on the go and it is now our winter school holidays and I want to finish some projects, declutter, do some deep cleaning and freshen some things up and do some visiting and entertaining!
I'll see how far I get!
Enough of my rambling and back to this post.
I have wanted to buy some new gumboots for a while, because my last pair, a leopard print, were "stolen" by B4 and B5 and no longer suitable for lady-like mummy wear.
I fixed them good this time because there is no way they will want to wear mum's floral gumboots!
I just love them!
They are so cute and great to wear to soccer, early in the morning when the ground is still wet- particularly if the grass is a bit long or has just been mowed.
I also wore them the other day to our local Home Schooling Sports Day
- the day started out very cold with a heavy frost-
I later changed into joggers when the ground dried up and it got warmer.
I am cheering The Girl on in the relay here,
this photo was taken my friend Karen.
They have a cute little strap on the side and I love the grey and red and touch of pink- very much goes with lots of my winter wardrobe!
Look at the difference that a little editing makes.
This is the original photo colour.
This is what happens when I push picmonkey's auto adjust
What do you think?
Which do you prefer?
This is the top of the gumboots with the same treatment
I think the before looks more real, but I like the clarity and brightness of the adjusted ones.
We have had a bit of rain last week and I was very glad of these on a couple of occasions, particularly negotiating some very soggy ground at soccer on Saturday!
Notice they are sporting a little mud - I left it there for effect!
