Mommy, Why Haven't You

been playing with your laptop thing...you know tapping your fingers on it...and putting pictures of us on your clog thing...so that all of your cloggy friends will know what we are doing?
Me:  I don't know, I keep thinking about all these things that I want to blog about--it's blog not clog,  but I just can't seem to get around to it.
CiCi and GinGin: Oh blog..okay.  Well go ahead tell them what has been rattling around in your head.
Me: Okay, here you go...
I went here the other day, because there was something there that wanted me, and whatever it was...was calling to me.
For those of you that read my blog will know that I have posted about shoes at the Salvation Army before. Check it out here
For some reason, I'm drawn to the shoes there and (no I'm not crazy) and think about what are the little stories behind them..so here goes.
These are Ferragamo pumps with "Made in Italy" stamped inside.  Ferragamo is embossed in gold on the buckles.  My cousin Annette says they are from the 80s.   It's hard for me to imagine these shoes on someone deep in the Mississippi Delta...they remind me of  Krystle Carrington...somehow she must have made her way through here while filming Dynasty.

These are Chrissy.. from Three's Company.
These are Alexis Carrington.....hmmm they were both here. I wonder if they got in a cat fight while dining at Lusco's...
And here are the twins Ann Landers and Abigail VanBuren...
And last but not least they are still here......to the anonymous bridesmaid.....always a bridesmaid...never a bride.....
Disclaimer: One of the rules of my little game, is that I can't touch the shoes, only photograph them.  And the thing is, nobody in the Salvation Army pays the least bit of attention to me while I'm doing this.

Holly wanted to say "hey" to your girls--she went to the vet yesterday for her annual checkup and she has been MISERABLE ever since. It takes her a whole day to recuperate from all the shots and insertions and all. I gave a ton of shoes to the Goodwill about a year ago but I would never buy someone else's shoes myself. Yuck.

Here's the problem. First comes picture taking. Then comes picture posting. Next comes shoe touching...well you see where this going. Is an intervention necessary? You scoff at me do you? See thats the first layer of denial, protecting the addiction. Next comes anger...I think I better leave now - bye.

LOVE the photos of the shoes! Love your descriptions even more! Especially "the twins."

There was a time I would have bought some of those shoes just to display! Now I see people sell them on ETSY for high prices under "vintage."

Not to say anything... but the shoes where you are seem much more glamorous than here!

Oooh, those shoes are gorgeous - but not as gorgeous as you two little beauties!

Interesting pastime.

Great shoes! Having to eat my words...the Ferragamo shoes look more like the 90's! I love the S&A! Treasures to be uncovered!
