My Place & Yours - Shoes

Cute theme this week over at Punky & Me as chosen by Gypsy. Shoes!
I don't have a shoe collection exactly. I buy sandshoes/sneakers occasionally when I see some nice ones on sale! I even feel remotely guilty then that I still haven't worn out the other pairs I already have! But then again, I wear them & enjoy them. Who really cares! I don't have as many pairs as the picture on the Punky & Me post about this!
My shoes really aren't that thrilling though. I don't really own that many pairs compared to some people & none of them are worthy of talking about.
Until these came along... Gumboots!

I live in the country now! I needed a pair of wellies for the coming winter of course! & who wants regular black or blue wellies? No, not I! So I found these online somewhere. They were my second choice but my first favourites vanished. I was devastated. Were any other pairs going to compare with those that I missed on? No... So well, we had to find some & these are the ones I got.
So when I am working in the garden in winter, I will have pretty cute feet at least! You won't miss me that is for sure! No doubt they will last me for years & years & years. (which can be unfortunate as I don't want to become a wellie collector really!)

These boots were made for walkin'
That's just what they'll do.
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you.

Oh cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute! I luffs gumboots... I would wear them everywhere if I had the perfect pair...!

They look lonely out on the grass all alone though... and much to clean for real country gumboots, they are just begging to be gotten dirty madam!

Thanks very much for playing along this week!
