You read that right,
Shoes. Who could have know?
Last January I wrote the History of the Hudson’s Bay Point Blanket. One of my favorite things on Earth.
Last week, a dear blog follower sent me a picture of these striped wonders, and this week…they are on my feet.
How Amaze-ballz are they?
2 of my favoite things, working togther in perfect harmony.
So the Hudson’s Bay Point Blanket Company gathers up the courage to call the Converse Shoe Company and asks them on a date …….let’s assume that they shared a nice dinner, some drinks, perhaps a walk under the stars,…… they went back to the Converse Shoe Company’s house and they made sweet, sweet love.
A few months later – baby. (Of the Lifesaver Striped wool, Jack Purcell variety)
Just love them.
…and there’s no doubt who the father is.
I love your blog and have no idea how I missed your January post (which I just checked out) and being a Canadian gal let me tell you, you can still buy Hudson bay blankets at the “The Bay” web site. I found one at our local Salvations army a few years ago and it proudly holds court at the foot of the bed for as we Albertian’s know nothing keeps you quite as warm as wool (except maybe for central heat 😉 !!
Thanks Shae, they are the best blankets. Wish we had them at Texas thrift stores……
they’re AWESOME! I got some new converse last week and they felt too tight, so I looked into other ways to tie the laces. did a ‘parallel’ tie. Kinda cool to try something different!
I wanna see your tats. Another blog, maybe?
I was questioning the ink in this pic….(One foot in Hell, and the Rebel insignia.)….I you wanna see any more of my tats, you have to buy me a few shots first….
Adorbz to the max!! Cutest sneakers I’ve seen in a while!! Your story made me giggle!!
Okay, those are great.
Now I wonder how many peeps have noticed them + remarked appropriately.
Hopefully you live in a more hipster ‘hood than I do.
I haven’t worn them yet, just 5 minutes in the front yard……to take pictures. Pretty sure that striped shoes would stick out in any neighborhood.
