are you a shoe person?

Today I bought some fab new shoes, ladies King Gee with pink trim. Aren’t they just delicious. Best of all they protect my feet while I am working outside.

I am not a shoe person. I have maybe 10 pairs of shoes in total.  I have never been a shoe person. I don’t have great feet so I find shoes hard to wear.  Shoes are an added extra, if I didn’t have to wear shoes in public I wouldn’t.  I don’t wear shoes around the house. Sometimes I have gone running without my shoes on.  It is hard to get me excited about shoes.  The first thing I do when I get home is kick off my shoes.

It is quite funny really since I love shoe lasts. These are the wooden blocks (now they are plastic) that shoes are made around.   The old wood and the shape get to me. I image how many shoes were made on them.  I am a tactile person and they are lovely to touch and hold. They have a lovely weight to them.  I have a collection of these.  Here is one below. My DD decorated the toe and heel with beads.

These shoes were worn by my niece at her recent wedding. Loving the bling!



And if I could wear these I would.


And these are pretty special.


Black and white polka dots….. *sighs*


But these Valentino lace shoes are surely the ultimate shoes.



And this from one of my favourite poems “I’d pick more daisies” says it all.

“If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall.”
