Sock It To Me!


Returning home from a few days away there was much delight in these parts. Little packages waiting on the doormat were opened to reveal seeds and socks. Now for a confession I have a bit of a thing about socks. After years of having to wear either dresses or skirts for work I now revel in trousers for everyday wear, accompanied by socks in the cooler months. I already have snowflakes, icicles and polar bears in my winter collection but nothing featuring flowers. When I came across them I just could not resist these snowdrop socks! Perhaps a little late for this season I look forward to wearing them in the future.

They are part of a collection called 'Floral Feet' from the Cornish company Seasalt, which may appeal to fellow bloggers and/or sock aficionados. A bit more expensive than my normal tootsie wear they feel soft and inviting. As with all these things the acid test comes to the wearing and washing thereof. However if they are as good as they look and feel I will be most satisfied. Meanwhile another pair featuring daffies on a dark blue background is calling out to me .....

N.B. This is not a sponsored post. I bought the socks myself and have no links with the company.

  1. They're wonderful, so pretty. I like the sound of the daffodil ones too. I have a bit of a thing for socks too, both bought and hand knitted.

    1. I've resisted the daffodil ones do far Jo :) Hand knitted sound soft and snuggly.

  2. I hope that you have better luck with socks then I do. One of a pair always seems to go awol.

    1. I have that problem too. I'm sure that there is a sock eating monster out there. This pair will receive special treatment when it comes to washing :)

  3. At least the socks are a cheaper buy than some snowdrops.
    Will we see the seeds delivered in your seed list?

    1. Now that's most true Brian but the snowdrops will last longer and will also multiply :) I'm sure that I will mention the seeds at some point.

  6. What gorgeous looking socks, I could easily develop a sock habit myself, and have just discovered sea salt. Hmm...

    1. Good to hear from you Janet. Hope that all's well with you. I'm sure that such a pair of socks would look most fetching on your lovely tootsies :)

  7. Snowdrop socks! I liked Brian's comment about a price comparison with the real thing :) If I was a regular sock wearer I would be doing the same as you :)

    1. I know Cathy - whatever next :) Brian's comment made me smile but as I replied to him most snowdrops unlike socks go forth and multiply.

  8. Perfect for a galanthophile! I had a look at the others and the daffodils look great too. But you need to wear a skirt, or shorts at least, to show them off! LOL!

    1. Thanks for understanding Cathy. Now if only I had the legs for shorts. I will just have to stick my feet out so that people see their beauty.

  9. Well obviously you had to have them. Very nice too. If I had a thing about socks, I would have bought them too. I am just happy the days that I manage to wear matching ones.

    1. Well of course I did Chloris. It was a matter of destiny. I must confess I've been out before wearing unmatched socks :)

  10. I love them. I'm a huge fan of Seasalt stuff so will have to seek these out. John Lewis have got some lovely flowery socks at the moment which I treated myself to the other day. I'm a big sock fan. I spend most of my time wearing trousers and have quite a collection now.

  11. "Lovely flowery socks " - you say Louise - "John Lewis" - you say. Get thee behind me temptation! :)

  12. Pretty socks, you can't beat a pretty sock can't you? I have the sock monster too and the odd socks at the bottom of the laundry basket too prove it!

All your comments are much appreciated and treasured. I wil try to reply to everyone who leaves a comment, but it may take me a few days, especially when I start spending more time in the garden and at the lottie. I know that you will understand :) I am sure that I will also visit your blog if I have not already done so. If you have any specific questions I will either reply to them here or you can email me at : thegreentapestry@gmail.com
