I love those bright red shoes :) I need some easy slip ons that I can just hose off. Right now I use my old runners and the dirt goes right into the shoes. Yuck!

I responded to your questions about my camera in the comments. Hope it's helpful to you!

Old running shoes, usually -- or boots, when appropriate. I love the cheery red!


I have a pair just like those!!
Love 'em!


Today? Crocs with wooly socks for the cooler temperatures. When it's muddy, I wear ladybut clogs.

The shoe color is perfect with your blog heading. I love Crocs to and just like you am always barefoot in the house. Shoes on, shoes off. I definitely need slip-ons of some kind.


Thanks for all the comments. It looks like I'm not the only "slip on" girl!


Hi Kathleen: Thanks for visiting at Hoe&Shovel and for your kind compliment.

Well I just can't buy into the Croc thing for everyday wear. I've tried. My family loves them ...but me? it's just not me and I just have to go with it.

As far as gardening... I do go with the slip ons. I keep a pair at the garage door (w/ all my gardening supplies) and one pair at the back door. They are a mule style from Smith & Hawkin. Very comfortable- yet waterproof. Yesterday they saved my toe from the spinning edger blade which I stupidly swiped while moving something out of my way.

Have to say- love the "red" of YOUR Crocs. My favorite color.

Hi Meems! That's okay on not buying into the crocs. It still cracks me up that I wear them when I didn't like them for so long! Sounds like you have found some great slip on alternatives. (I'm glad they saved your toe by the way) And red is my fave too! :-)
