My favourite socks

I have two pairs of socks that have been my favourite so far. One pair has cats on them and was a very sweet gift from my daughter. The other pair has David Bowie on them and was a very kind gift from fellow blogger Michele.

And now I have a new pair to add to that favourite collection. I make photo gifts (calendars) for my family for Christmas and because of that I also get promo ads for such items. So, back in September, when I saw that I could have socks made with any image I want on them, I immediately thought of having socks made with Richard Armitage on them (and I decided to add a little something on the soles as well)! I had two pairs made. One for myself and one for the #HoHoHolidayFundRAiser that Guylty has just kicked off today! These are my socks…

… but you can also own a pair yourself if you are able to bid on this Richard Armitage December auction item! The ones in the auction are all new and never used. As I can’t actually send along a real Pinot Noir bottle to go with these socks, I have made a little red wine package for the auction which includes the Pinot Noir socks, some red wine tea (yes, apparently that exists!), a tea infuser and a coaster on which you can place your steaming hot cup of tea. You can, of course, also use it with a real glass of red wine.

On a little side note: there is actually a Pinot Noir wine in existence from California that is named Armitage! Just sayin’…

Anyway, these are cosy little items to keep you warm and comfortable this winter and best of all, all proceeds go to the LOROS hospice! So bid away on this little package if you can and when the auction ends I will send it out to you as soon as possible.

Should you prefer to not have Richard at your feet, there are many more wonderful items to be won in this year’s #HoHoHolidayFundRAiser auction! Be sure to take a look at what’s on offer on Guylty’s Ebay page or, for a nice overview of all items, check out her blog.

        1. Yes! That was actually the main selling point for me to want to create something like this. I mean, Armitage on your feet is fine but a hidden message just gives it that something extra. πŸ™‚
