I Needed A Reason To Smile Today...Shoes Do It Every Time!!

     Some things are just a given when you're talking about smile-worthy things....On the short list are bacon...giggling babies...soft ice cream on the cone...30th wedding anniversaries {YAY!!!!}...and shoes! :-) All of which can make you behave in ways that you know you ought not! And the shoes...they can even make your 'trigger-happy' pointer finger itchy to "Buy It Now"! ^_^
     But don't let me get your 'trigger happy' finger in trouble! This post is just for looking!...That's what I wanted to do instead of complaining about my headache and achy body from the last night of my 'Sleep Study'...YAY! It's over!!! All except the evaluation, that is. "To-be-continued" on that subject...Right now, let's look at some shoes!! ^_^

      Don't you just love a shoe with some color?!...especially blue teal! And if it has a Venise lace applique on the side...even better! :-) Any bride wearing these shoes on her big day is gonna have fun...and so is anybody around her, because these shoes say: "I'm fun!" ^_^

      And, speaking of fun, you are nothing but fun if you have this on your foot! :-)) ...

     Well...actually, if you have this shoe on your foot, somebody is probably standing around a corner laughing their head off at your "hillbilliness"... ^_^ ...because it's not suppose to be worn. It's a shoe sculpture entitled "In A New York Minute".

        Is that a cool shoe, or what?! ^_^ I love the rhinestone headlights on the toe!

    The shop SoleSensations is full of fun shoes, what they call "Fantasy Creations"...This one below certainly fits that description! ^_^ ...

        There's nothing like a shoe that's actually a shoe sandwich to make you smile the big smile! :-)

      But just in case you're the kind of strange person that actually wants to WEAR your shoes on your feet, here's a couple of cool pair for that purpose too...

       A vintage pair of NEON chunk heel shoes from Continual...

     More color, in orange, yellow and green! :-)

      I like this vintage, bright, not so mellow yellow pair too...

      These (above) are from MoVintagebycr.

     And if you want a couple of pair that you can just throw in a pretty flower shoe bag...

     ...and maybe take to the beach, the boardwalk, or on a picnic, or to a family reunion, etc...How about these...

        Or even these...

     See there! I'm smiling! :-) And my head barely hurts anymore!....Okay, maybe that's stretching it a bit. But I do feel better than I did during the night!...I don't even wanna talk about it!! Maybe I'll tell you about it when the results of the sleep study come in.

      I'll leave you with the next color started o my Sweater blanket...

       ...and with some reasons to smile! :-) Have a good day, Everybody!

Reasons To Smile

I don't really need a reason,
to let out a great big grin;
But I do from time to time,
just to exercise my chin.

Sometimes I do it just to see
what reaction I will get,
in the places where I've gone,
and the people that I've met.

Sometimes it's just for me!
To amuse some silly thought;
Or to show just how excited
I have been at what I bought.

Sometimes a smile can change my mood,
when weather forecasts make me blue;
Or when I see a baby playing!
Oh yes! Oh Yes! I smile then too!

Truth is, I really don't need a reason.
Frowns just,frankly, aren't my style.
I could sit and write about it,
But even that would make me smile. 


  1. I don't need a reason to smile either! I love all the shoes in this post! It's a weakness of mine. Tee hee! Have a wonderful day and get some badly needed rest.

    1. I'm so glad you like them, Cindy! :-) Yeah, you and I both are shoe people...but I didn't know I was a shoe 'sculpture' person until now! ^_^ I love the shoe sculptures too!...Off to get some rest. Have a good day, my friend!

  2. Haha! These are fantastic! I think I'll take the felted ones as these Montana mornings are so crisp. Wonderful way to step into the week!

    1. ^_^ I'm so glad you like them!...And you're so's a great way to step into the new week! ^_^

  3. Your cheery poem put a big smile on my face :) What a fun post this is. Love the various shoes! The brisket flip flop brought about a chuckle. Great, bright, happy colors you have chosen for your sweater blanket. Beautiful work, as always. Wishing you a restful nights sleep ... zzz.

    1. A cheery smile on your face makes the poem well worth posting them! ^_^ I'm glad the shoes gave you a little chuckle too. They did me too. That's why I shared! LOL Thanks for all of the nice words. I'll try to get a few extra Zzzzs tonight...just for you!....Okay, for me too! LOL

  4. Deb, I am smiling as well. The blue shoes are lovely.

    1. Very good, Priscila! ^_^ ... And I agree about the blue shoes.

  5. Some of those shoes definitely made me smile and one pair made me think goodness they're shoes? Who would wear the flip-flops that look like a sandwich? Not me. The neon shoes remind me of licorice allsorts. I love them! Brodie just happened to walk past when the yellow shoes were on the screen. He said they looked like bananas. I think we have food on the brain here! :D

    1. Ha! Ha! You had the same reactions I did to the shoes! In fact, it was the sandwich flip flop shoe that made me wonder...???! Really?! ^_^ And you know what?...I' hungry now too! LOL

  6. I love those tie dye effect felt slippers!
