I’m not a person who covets shoes, but I suspect some of you reading this blog might. Often, I like to take photographs of eye-catching display items, and this nabbed my attention in a shoe shop in Galway last Saturday. Not my style at all, but I liked the combination of colours and patterns, especially on a dull February day. The cat ankle books look like something from a fantasy story: put them on, say the magic word, and you are transformed into a cat. And you can even have a matching purse.
