I Love My New Shoes!


I love a good, super cute flat shoe! Which made me super happy when the good people at Earth® Brands asked me to review one of their NEW Spring/Summer 2014 super cute shoes from the Earth collection!  Hello, how awesome are these shoes?!

Earth Footwear Butterfly - Grass Green

Now if your thinking um, Erin isn't Earth® footwear those old hippy shoes? Let me tell you about them...they are a modern collection of smartly styled casual footwear, perfect for real women’s real lives. I have other pairs of their shoes and I can vouch that they are stylish and yet easy and comfortable to wear on your busiest days.  Earth® footwear combines contemporary styling with uncompromised comfort to create a collection that brings a refreshing new twist to footwear—letting women look and feel their best when they’re on the move.

For my review I choose the Butterfly shoes in "grass green" (there are 4 beautiful rich colors to choose from...I really like the "red plum" color shown below too). The whimsical butterfly detail makes this ballet flat something I can wear just about anywhere.  They look great dressed up or down and I've wore them everywhere from church to running errands.


Now I have to admit, when I first took them out of the box and saw the ruching on the heal I wasn't too sure how they'd feel on.  I thought they might be too tight or just feel funny, but I was wrong.  Once your feet are in them the gathered section smooths out to hug your foot perfectly and is supper comfy.

These shoes have a premium suede upper and glove-soft leather lining. Like other Earth® shoes they have the secret sauce for comfort...a padded heal to displace the shock your foot receives when walking, extra cushioning, arch support help stabilize your foot, and leather sock lining which feels really good and help your feet breath.

I love it. Not only is this shoe cute, contemporary, and in one of my favorite colors, but it is so comfortable that there is no "breaking it in" period. Yeah, they seriously feel that good...right off the bat!

Oh, and did I mention the price?  The Spring/Summer 2014 Earth® Collection starts at $85 – with the majority of the collection under $100!  It's a great value for a shoe that looks great and is that comfortable to wear!  You can check out the other styles of shoes in the Spring/Summer collection here.

Antique finds

Blog1 I needed to get couple of things for a mixed media piece I'm working on so I headed over to one of my local antique stores to look around.  I found a few things that made me happy so I took them home with me.  :D


I got this spice embellishment rack for only $3.75 on sale.  -Love a good deal! 

Blog4 Here's a close up of the spoon.  The handle is what made me buy it!  I don't know if it will wind up being Incorporated on some art, or jewelry, or what, but I had to have it.


Here's a cute sewing machine I saw there.  -Great color!  I passed it up though, one has to use restraint sometimes.
