Apparently I am a winner!

While in Melbourne I received a lovely phone call from the folks at a design magazine I subscribe to saying I had won a pair of shoes in a giveaway and asking my size. I was stoked! The only thing I have won in my life was a pocket dictionary when I was 12, oh and a cake mix and tin of bean mix at Bingo with my Nan when I was teeny tiny! So as you would imagine winning a pair of $100 something shoes I was rather chuffed. So the postman arrived and left a card for me to go pick up my parcel from the post office. So off I drove the other day in anticipation of these new shoes. Got my parcel and this is what I got…

Button and string shoe box – super cool packaging!

But… MEN’s shoes! The brand name: CLAE
(my husband’s best friends name)

And see the style name: BRUCE (that’s my husband’s name)

Now I would wear these around in winter with jeans anyway except they are a bit big for me and we are on the Sunny Qld coast and about to head into Summer, not ideal.

But seriously I had to win a pair of men’s shoes, named after my husband and his best friend. If that’s not a sign that they aren’t for me I don’t know what it is. Unfortunately they are too small for the husband… I do have a brother in law that they would fit… Christmas present?!

Luckily I had purchased a pair of PipDuck Wellies and have beed rocking these bad boys in the garden and also at the park with the kidlets. How cool are they!!!

And just to make you smile, here is my first attempt of growing carrots!
Too funny!

Hope you enjoyed a laugh.

  1. Shame about the shoes… but you WON!!! Yay!
    I don’t think i’ve ever seen such artistic, twisted carrots, yes, i did laugh! {maybe your soil is too hard/ compacted? or maybe they are just carrot twisties and you are about to start a new craze!}
    Cool gumboots! I now have gumboot envy xxx

  2. Your wellies are ADORABLE! Your carrots, however, scare me a little bit. 😉
    Congrats on your win, it was obviously meant to be!

  3. This is funny, and the carrot???? well, never seen quite like it 🙂 love your blog babe 🙂

  4. Those cannot be real carrots! I don’t even know what to say about them. Weirdest thing I’ve ever seen.
