This is a semi-realistic vector illustration I did a while back of the Etta Avenue’s Clayne Wide Velvet Armchair (that’s a mouth full), also called Clayne Upholstered Armchair in Pink Velvet. It was illustrated in Affinity Designer 2 Desktop app. You can find the chair here.
WordPress’ Daily Prompt: “Tell us about your favourite pair of shoes, and where they’ve taken you.“
Back in 2016, I took part in a writing challenge on the app, Lettrs and one of the prompts was “Shoe Lover” so I wrote a silly little piece about the best pair of boots I have ever owned. The Faux Leather Moto Boots from Urban Planet.
The Boots 😍
I have never really been a part of the “shoe lover” club. I mean, shoes have just never been the thing I get all crazy about. I have never owned more than two or three pairs at a time. I have never been the type to go shoe shopping unless I truly needed to go shoe shopping. I have never passed by a window, stopped dead in my tracks and squealed in excitement “Oh my gosh! Look at those pumps. I must have them! They would look terrific with that dress I have been dying to wear” or “Those boots would go great with my Gucci bag!”. While I do give kudos to those who can recognize and appreciate a great, reliable shoe when they see one, I have never been one of those people. I have just never loved a pair of items that go on my feet so much that when I said “goodbye” to them, it was like I was saying “goodbye” to a part of me.
The chore that has been the most challenging to me is sweeping which is unfortunate because as much as I do love having a clean home, I especially love having clean floors. It sounds like such a simple thing to do to sweep the dirt on the floor into one pile, then sweep it into a dust pan and dump it in the garbage. I mean, it does sound simple. However, it is the one chore I suck at.
