October 30, 2010 It's a shoe-in

Back in "the days", I was one of the many women who love shoes. Oh, I still do, but just don't indulge in the passion quite as much.

But, I do take photos of shoes in my travels, so here are just a few for your pleasure.

And, although not glamorous, necessary for the rain, or aqua alta, in Venice.

For the gentleman in your life, these natty spats, perhaps.

 And, finally, my old favourites, who walked many a kilometer with me. Alas, they are now part of some landfill on Vancouver Island. I mourn.


  1. I really like the ones with the polka dots, and the parrots in the lining! They were in a shop in Seattle.

  2. I love the pink one with the parrots too !
    I'm sure you would enjoy my boots for the aqua alta in Venice (we had an important one during the carnivale this year)
    I use to collectl shoes too ! a little less than undred pairs !
    Kisses from PARIS

  3. Bonjour! I'll be in Venice next March, I will have to look for some very pretty boots for the aqua alta.

    Baci from Australia.

  4. I like the Wellington boots with the ruler down the side. That's quite clever.
    Have you seen the 'glass slippers' in Venice, made from Coke bottles, or the ones made from snakeskin, with the heads still on?
