My father and his wife visit Luxembourg twice a year. They wanted to come beginning of October, but unfortunately she was ill and they couldn't travel. This caused a problem on both sides because as soon as I know when they are coming, I start sending packages to his address to save on shipping cost: books, dvd's in Dutch and heavy vintage items. And I order tobacco for him here in Luxembourg (he smokes a pipe), it is sooo much cheaper here than in the Netherlands. What happened was that he had half a room full of boxes and I had a drawer full of tobacco. We decided to drive to drive both to Maastricht (in the south of Holland), have a cup of coffee together and exchange packages. After that we paid our oldest son a visit in Aachen/Germany, did some shopping there and drove home again.
In the boxes were so many lovely things I had almost forgotten about. Among them these gorgeous shoe lasts. I have never seen them like this before, they have high heels!
