Lady Slippers

Lady Slipper
Originally uploaded by Strickanfall.

So I decided I needed slippers for guests at the country house. And then I decided that J needed new slippers (cause the only pair he owned now resides at daycare). Pompons are on his, flowers are on the lady slippers.

Hausschuhe fuer Gaeste, weil der Boden sooo kalt ist auf dem Land. Und neue Hausschuhe (ohne Foto) fuer J. Einmal Bluemchen, einmal Pompons.

Des chaussons, une fois pour adulte, une fois pour petit garcon. Une fois avec des fleurs, une fois avec des pompons.
