Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Shoes or Feet (Human and Animal)

If The Shoe Fits

This is how I store my Barbie shoes. I have three boxes of these, two for Barbie and one for Ken.  Some of Barbies shoes are quite elaborate as you will see in the next picture.

My shoes on the other hand are just laying about where I can get them easily.  I keep a pair of boots by the back door because in winter the garden can be quite muddy. I still call them Wellington boots as we did in England. I actually refused to wear Wellingtons for over thirty years after an incident at school when someone put chewing gum inside my boot. However when we arrived in Tasmania in June 2002 I speedily realised that I needed something to keep my feet dry. I bought this pair of boots in an Op Shop in Huonville for 50c and still use them. It’s hard to pull them off sometimes and it reminds me of the old song “My Old Man’s A Dustman”.

As I didn’t want to include a picture of my own feet here is one of Cindy’s paws. She has been coming in rather muddy lately as well.
