Red socks,

First I want to thank you all so much for visiting and for the many congratulations I recieved from you! Thank you!

Last year I asked my MIL to knit me some red socks, so I could decorate them for christmas and hang them by the chimney.

new knitted socks

But I run out of time last year so I stored them away with the idea to decorate them this christmas.
This year I searched and searsched, but apparently I stored them away a bit to good because I couldn't find them in time to decorate...

Warm winter socks!

But when I was clearing the house from its christmas decorations this week, I found them!
So now it is no more decorating for these socks! No, now I am wearing them on these cold cold days!

It's ice skate time

And see if I can wear them in my ice skates! (hope to show some ice skate pictures later this weekend)

Any way I'm sure my MIL is happy now, the socks are being used where they are meant for!

Before I leave for a round on the ice I'll show the new bags I'm working on,

Hope too see you again this weekend,

Die zien er heerlijk warm uit! En als je er voorzichtig mee bent kun je ze volgend jaar nog gewoon aan je schoorsteenmantel hangen.

Love your purse colors.

And love your RED socks.

Haha, zeer herkenbaar! Dit jaar hingen zelfs de mooie kerstballen niet in de boom bij ons. Ik vond het een overwinning dat ik niet eens meer naar ze gezocht heb, ach niemand ziet toch wat er NIET hangt, maar daar dacht ik vroeger wel anders over! Heel veel plezier met schaatsen!

Those are happy socks! Pretty bag beginnings! I used to ice skate...I took figure skating lessons when I was a little girl in Lake Placid, NY.

Those red socks are wonderful! They look warm and wonderfully toasty. The bags look fabulous.

Fijn 2010!

hahahaha volgens mij heeft iedereen daar wel last van dat je soms niet meer weet waar iets gebleven is, nu komen je sokken alsnog goed van pas, leuke kleur dat rood.

groetjes Irma en een heerlijk kleurvol weekend
