Crochet Roses and a Walk Around the Garden

Hello and happy Tuesday.
Hope that I find you all well?
 First things to show you are my wedding shoes!I used one of my favourite patterns from one of my favourite books, cute and easy crochet with flowers.
I really love hooking up these lovely roses.
Being tall I always knew my shoes would have to be flat, so I picked up these white pumps and thought they could do with some crochet related jazzing up!
I used drops cotton light it was a dream to crochet with.
I'm really pleased with the look of them and think they will fit our vintage wedding theme well.
I cant believe we only have 3 months left before the big day.
