And for this week I´ve been saving this guest blog post by Giggles from Happy Tiler. Fun shoes stories that go with her colourful shoe related paintings.
When I was three, long before car seats, mom enrolled me in ballet lessons. Another lady drove us to the studio since mom didn't drive. Dressed in a black leotard, ballet slippers in hand I opened the car door and fell straight into a very deep ditch. I was full of muddy goo and very traumatized. I don't remember ever taking another ballet lesson after that!

After a lot of nagging and whining, (which normally never worked and resulted in a smack,) she conceded! Every time I tried to wear those fancy runners she'd say "don't wear your five dollar runners" eventually I outgrew them in their near new state! I have hated any kind of runners except Chuck Taylor converse runners ever since!!! Which I have never worn either!
Over the last five decades there is one comfortable shoe that I have probably worn the way people wear white runners, and that is the clog.... I loved clogs in the sixties and I still love them today! Only now I wear a replica type clog in the form of a merrell!
