Week ago Sunday morning, I was all dressed to go out when I stubbed my toes on the half-opened bedroom door. That's the second time I've done that in the last six months. When I broke my big toe, I remembered thinking it was lucky I didn't break the smaller ones. Well...yeah.
Should be about 6-8 weeks until it is healed. I can walk on it, but I can't run😦. I'm headed out of town in April so hopefully it will be doing better. Luckily it is the left foot, so I can still drive.

This candy-wrapper handbag was a recent purchase
Orthopaedic shoe-Urgent care at 132nd and Maple😬I don't know what it cost yet, but I'm guessing it will be a LOT. I picked up a second shoe in black (Fashion!) at the pharmacy so now I can match my injured foot to my outfit. Don't judge.
Before my mishap, I wore this teal dress with a teal blazer that were a perfect match. That doesn't happen often, at least not with teal. Alas, I spent the day adjusting the dress and ultimately decided it wasn't worth it, so it was donated where hopefully someone with a smaller bust will find it to enjoy. I just can't do wrap dresses/blouses anymore.

Fragrance-Vintage Miss Dior (I get it, or at least understand why people like it but I feel like a socialite on the way to a luncheon when I wear it...in other words, not me).
Speaking of antique brooches, this Edwardian sash pin is an interesting piece. The paste stone is a deep amethyst colour which doesn't show well in the photos. It is a gigantic piece, and I haven't worn it yet as it needed a bit of airing out after it arrived. Old metal can pick up odours and this one really did. It smelled of dill, actually. Anyway, it is fine now but I haven't worn it as the only Edwardian style dress I own where I could pin it on a sash in a lightweight cream coloured piece. Guess I'll have to wait until warmer weather.

And that's about it. With the spring weather comes the allergy-induced asthma and I curse the maple tree behind the house every time Danny starts coughing. We're giving the home nebuliser a good workout, that's for sure. My project this week is hiring a pet-sitter for Xerox and Shitty. Plenty of people out there for dogs and cats but we just don't have that many people that know about birds. We'll find soimeone-I'm not taking a budgie and a goldfish on a road trip!
Hope you have a great week. Look out for doors!
