Paris. It's 2008. I walk into a vintage shop with my husband and the first thing I see is a desirable assortment of shoes. Particularly alluring are green Prada shoes. After looking around the shop, I pick up the shoes and feel: they're mine! But alas! They are half a size too small. The fatal number 35.5 under the shoe. I try them on, and it's immediately evident that I won't walk a longer journey in them. I still decide to buy the shoes. For my daughter. When I go to the cashier, my husband starts coughing.
"Umm.. I thought they were too small for you!" I reply: "I'm not buying them for myself. They're for our daughter." Husband: "Our daugther? She is three years old!" I go: "Yes. But she'll grow!" So travelled the shoes from Paris straight to my shoe shelf. And indeed - they are waiting for their time. These Prada beauties wait until my daughter's foot is size 35.5 and then they'll be hers. I'd forgotten all about this story until I started finding shoes to match my new adidas bag. Then I remembered I have a pair on my shelf that is almost identical colour to this bag. Big spacey bags like this have always been a weakness of mine. Since I have a habit of naming my things, I christened the bag to be Agatha. This adidas bag is so big I could - have to go for a cliché here - fit the whole world in it, and I would add, also the cat if you're lucky. Exactly! One day I looked at my bags in the living room, and my cat crawled exactly into this bag... We shot this series on the windiest spring day of the year, and for the enjoyment of all drivers, my skirt flew over my head. Of course, it's a different question who enjoys what. Happy Friday, everyone!

"Eee... Ma arvasin, et need olid sulle väiksed!" Mina vastu: "Ma ei ostagi endale. Ostan meie tütrele." Abikaasa seepeale: "Meie tütrele? Ta on 3aastane!" Mina vastu: "Jep. Aga küll ta kasvab!" Nii rändasid need kingad Pariisist otse minu kingariiulile. Ja tõepoolest. Nad ootavad oma aega. Need rohelised Prada iludused ootavad kuniks minu tütre jalg on 35,5 ja siis saab ta need endale. Terve see lugu oli mul ununenud, kuniks nägin Rademari poes adidase rohelist kotti. Ja just siis meenus mulle, et minu kingariiulil on kingad, mis on peaaegu identset värvi selle kotiga. Sellised mahukad käekotid on alati olnud minu nõrkus. Kuna mul on komme oma asjadele nimesid panna, siis ristisin selle koti Agathaks. See adidase käekott on nüüd küll nii suur, et tuleb kasutada klišeed: "siia mahub terve maailm" ja ma lisaksin, et paremal juhul ka kass. Just! Ühel päeval vaatasin elutoas oma käekotte üle ja minu kass puges just sellesse kotti ... Me pildistasime seda fotoseeriat aasta kõige tuulisemal kevadpäeval ja kõikide autojuhtide rõõmuks lendas mul seelik üle pea. Iseasi muidugi, kes millest rõõmu tunneb. Rõõmsat reedet kõigile!
