I bought these 1970s clogs from etsy in the summer. I’d checked and rechecked the continental sizes against the UK ones. All seemed well and I took the plunge. They arrived and they were even more beautiful than in their picture. The handpainting was stunning and I couldn’t wait to put them on (and to possibly do a small cloggy dance). You might be able to guess what happened – they were at least a size too small. There was some clog anguish. I considered reselling them but couldn’t bear to part with them.
I’ve just hung them up on the wall. I think they might have become a Christmas decoration. Ahem. It’s December right?
Their vibrant colours reminded me – this month’s Splash of Colour week will begin next Monday, the 6th December. I’ll be posting colourful images to help us through the winter. There are now 42 members of the Splash of Colour Flickr pool. It’s a good place to visit if you want to take a look. I’ve made a new button for the project this month:
It would be wonderful if you could join in next week.
