Candy Cane Shoes

“No great deed, private or public, has ever been undertaken in a bliss of certainty.”

I can no longer wear high heels.  I just simply forgot how to walk in them.  But…. If I could, I would so wear these!  Aren’t they fun?  I painted them so long ago that I can’t remember where I got the photo, but I like these shoes.  :)

For  many years, I lived in high heels and business suits.  When I moved to Oklahoma in 1988, I didn’t even own a pair of jeans.  Now I live in jeans, shorts, flip flops and tennies.    I still don’t wear sweats unless I’m really sick or we have an ice storm and the power goes off.  Sometimes you just have to have comfort clothes.  he he

Love the shoe! I don't have and have never worn a heel that high; probably would kill myself. As for the blue jeans, shorts and for me sandals that is my daily attire and has been for several years. I don't know how to wear a dress or business suit anymore...ha ha Comfort is important and it sure costs less!

Have a great day!

Thanks, Vickie! Yeah, I'm sure I'd break my neck if I tried to walk in them now. You're right about comfort costing less, too. he he
