Crochet Wrapping Paper

My new green suede shoes - would you believe they are Clarkes. Back in my day Clarkes only made school shoes, big, black and chunky (extremely comfortable though). These were from a dream shoe shop down in Whakatane. I have forgotten the name though... I'll have to go back down there again and do a bit of detective work. That would probably mean another weekend away - hmmmm.

Last night we had one of favourite people in the world come to stay - Timbobombalina. Unfortunately his bride, Annaballarina also another of our favourite people in the world, couldn't make it (they do live in Australia and Tim was over for work) so I sent her an early birthday present. Panic ensued when I realised we were out of wrapping paper. And then I saw I had printed out an attic24 tutorial twice. Best wrapping paper in the world. Pretty, recyclable and informative.


  1. I saw those shoes last week and wanted to ask where you'd got them . . . they're fabulous!

  2. YSF and I love the shoes too!, in fact he would like to get a pair!! A brilliant green. Sydney is great going home tomorrow. I have been checking out all yourblogs and favourite reads of yours and Lucy' getting more and more inspired. Love

  3. Oh my... I love green shoes... where did you get them and can I have some too!

    Your wrapping is fantastic. What a brilliant idea. :)

  4. Is that mention of another visit to the shoe shop an invitation...hope so...I'm still having withdrawel symptoms of not being there anymore!

  5. Hi, I've just discovered your blog, Thanks to The scent of water. Love your style. And I read on and saw that you have a bit of Cath Kidston stuff!!! I love it.
    I was really impressed with your crocheting but as somehow I seem to just be a knitter I thought I'd leave it. But it seems you only learnt recently. I'll check out that site and see what happens.

  6. Those shoes! I'm going to have to go to the Clarkes website, they are GORGEOUS! Love your wrapping, and especially the crochet tie. Brilliant!
    Love Vanessa xxx (do you mind if i knit)

  7. Gorgeous shoes. Gorgeous-er wrapping paper!
