mmmmmmmmm, contentment. Wednesday was a busy day. I had a free lance project in the morning. Then I put in some very satisfying work on something for a new monthly client. Then I got confirmation that another new monthly client is likely to come my way. And then I went online and dug and dug until I found a new shoe I've been jonesing for that was still available in my size. If I was given to using sports metaphors, I'd say I feel like doing a victory dance in the end zone. But to be honest I've never been able to keep straight whether the end zone is under the net or near third base. Suffice it to say I felt like treating myself to a favorite take out dinner from my favorite local Szechuanese restaurant (#503 Spicy Pork with Broccoli in Garlic Flavor Sauce), and now with my belly full of happy flavors and my cat at my feet (and a confirmation in my Inbox that yes, indeed, those shoes I found still available in my size are winging their way to my building lobby) I'm eager to lay here on the sofa and share a few recent footwear related discoveries I've made on the internet. Life is grand...as an old friend used to say. I never quite understood what she meant by it at the time, but I'm happy to say that things have happened in my heart lately to bring the emotion behind it powerfully into focus!
Sven Clogs Factory Sale
It may be a bit of a trip from your part of the world, but think of the savings. Lisa at Sven's Clogs wrote to me on Monday to ask me to spread the word. So fill up the tank, empty out the trunk, and prepare yourself for major savings on your favorite footwear.
Look what Jeffrey Campbell brought back!
Am I the only one who remembers these rolling sandals from years ago? I actually tracked down a pair at the time, but not being to skate pretty much kept me from every really wearing them. That and the fact that they made a lot of racket just walking in them, all that mechanical hardware rattling around in the platform sole with every step. Still, I'm thrilled to see them again.
In case you're not clear on how they work, the wheels are retractable and only drop down when you operate the button release on the side.
Available through Envi Shoes.

[On my feet as I blog: I was so thrilled those pale denim jeans fit me again, I wore the same outfit I had on at the beginning of the week: jeans, black top, and No. 6 ankle booties. Old pants and shoes I've had for months, but somehow together they feel new again.]
