Barefoot in the Park

Well, the back garden actually, the park would have healthier looking grass.
The girls and I were very taken with these barefoot sandals at the craft fair at the Carnival last week. Several pairs were purchased. Does this count as buying shoes I wonder. I did get some new converse this week...
Having worn mine for days I had a sudden brainwave and raided my button tin. The seashell pair on the right are the ones I bought, the ones on the left are my own creation.
It is ridiculously difficult to take a photo of your own feet. They end up looking stubby and foreshortened due to the angle you are shooting from. I asked Eloise to come and take a picture, but as you can see Jinx hijacked the photoshoot
I also thought you'd be amused to see this. Not everything creative in this house always turns out just how we'd planned it. Here we see the "Tropical Fruit Roulade" Naomi was attempting to make, and her finished version:-

Nailed it!  Tasted great mind you.

Your uber cute button sandals are fabulous. Years ago I make beaded pearl barefoot sandals and had fun wearing them. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

I love your own version! What a lucky gal you are to be able to go outside barefoot. I am stuck indoors in this heat. I wear high orthopedic boots and they are soooo hot. I can wear Birkenstock slips on that are closed but not to go out of the house or garden.

It is the taste that counts and with all the fruit, it must have been really refreshing. It all mixes up in the tummy in the end after all...lol.

Hugs from Holland ~
