I'm ba-ack!

Pat, Baboushka and I are back home from our little voyage to Brisbane. It was lovely, we somehow managed to see and do a lot while having a good old-fashioned relax.

But before I write about any holiday hijinks or put up any pictures (that will probably take me a little while - lame traveller that I am, the plane trip has left me feeling woozy and as though I'm rocking in a boat. Or a CityCat, if you will.), I have to share this site that I recently read about - Tom's. Not only do they have some very rad footwear, but they have a social conscience. For each pair of shoes that you buy from Tom's, they will donate a pair to a child in need :-)

On my wishlist:









And for Baboushka, these adorable wee paint-splatter shoesies!

welcome back! the boots are absolutely fabulous. they sell the shoes in norway but they're ghastly expensive to be just thin fabric i think. i'd rather buy some shoes that will last more than one season and donate some money to unicef:)

what a great company with a great vision.

I really love the newspaper print ones. They remind me of the cups you get hot chips out of (and co-incidentally, I also lurve hot chips!).

Welcome back! I had not seen the boots before, those are a must have now, thank you!

@Alli: that's a good idea - I should donate money every time I am tempted to buy something (read: anything for my wardrobe)!

@Danielle: you are swaying me back in the direction of wanting these shoes again ;-)

@Permanently twenty three: allusions to anything deep-fried are all the more reason the love a pair of shoes! Excellent observation.

@Blushing hostess: my pleasure! They're cool-looking boots, aren't they?
