Would You Wear These?

Birthday celebrations in the Matron household this weekend. But would you wear these? How about this brilliant invention The Egg Skelter. An ingenious contraption to store your home produced eggs in the order in which they were laid. No more do you have to write the day on each egg as they are laid. Great fun too!

Not sure if I could wear the wellies - maybe if you cover them with plenty of mud..?
Do you know where the egg skelter is from? I would love to get one for my parents.

The wellies, hmmm, probably not, but the Egg Skelter is wonderful.

Those veggie wellies might scare small children - so I probably would not wear them. They would make a fabulous piece of garden art though!

Love the wellies!

Just thought I would say I've been lurking on your blog for a while and have now started an allotment blog of my own. You can find it here - http://allotmentdad.wordpress.com/

Hope you stop by!

Hm, not me, I prefer low-profile clogs. But you will be so spiffy, and hope you had a happy birthday! Love the Egg Skelter.

I most certainly WOULD wear those wellies! How funky!

Happy Birthday - love the wellies, they're even wilder than mine! If you don't like them you could always plant things in them!
The egg-skelter thingy is a bit fabby too!:)

Is it wrong that I'm considering getting chickens just to justify the purchase of an egg skelter?

Quite frankly i love both of your gifts, wouldn't mind them myself! Yip, the wellies will take a bit of attitude to get away with but they make me smile.
Happy Belated Birthday.

Those boots are something! Will be interested to see if you're brave enough to wear them... :-)

I'd wear them, in shorts, and in public, just to see my wifes face! LOL!

I WANT A PAIR!!! where did you get those fab wellies from??????

 
At 7:56 PM, Blogger Matron said...

Margo, I think they were bought in the Auchan hypermarket..in Warsaw, Poland!

I hope your b-day was spectacular Matron! Those are the wildest wellies I've ever seen. I'd definitely wear them--or put up a tomato plant in them! That egg thingy is also very cool.
