From inside the wardrobe door... Desert adventure


...Louisa was dirty, dusty and thirsty, she had just arrived in the souq after a very trying camel ride. All eyes descended on her as she was helped down from her transport by the grinning bearded man with the large white turban who had led her through the desert .He held out his hand for payment and she obliged from her small purse. She wrapped her pale blue veil about her ,covered her face and walked directly into the busy and crowded marketplace. She would find food and lodging here for the night. She spotted us from the corner of her eye, saw the glint of our sparkling sequins in the sun and knew we would be perfect and comfortable and a gorgeous souvenir from her travels through Morocco...

Aqua Moroccan Slippers from the personal collection of the butterfly collector. A gift from my sister and her partner Peter from their travels to the Atlas Mountains. I wear them a lot in summer and they have also hung on the wall as decoration at one stage in my home, which is decorated with lots of gorgeous aqua things!!! Every time I go out shopping or thrifting I seem to spy aqua things out of the corner of my eye! Does anyone else have something they are addicted to buying?
