fur kissed boots.*

How happy we must be.  I have ten toes, and two working feet. If it wasn't for my feet, I'd surely stray into a bed, and sleep all day long. My feet are instruments.  Not only as a drum beat when I groove to a tune,  or as a two-step when dancing with my dove. These feet of mine, these size 7 feet, they bring me to places.  I know adventure because of my feet. They move, skip, walk, and run onto paths and pavements
My feet know moss, wood slivers, and bare snow.

Now, past the poetic language of feet, and the sweet sensations of being barefoot on grass.
A fashion-thirsty girl will always love dressing her feet in shoes.

 My feet have known a few nice pairs.  But, I've never been too proud of my collection... Until now.

I received the most generous and uplifting email a month or so ago. The website and online shopping destination at seoul contacted me, offering free shoes.   The website stems from Korea which means you can expect fur touches, floral patterns, and lots of "cuteness"
 After receiving the email, I spent hours admiring the many adorable fabrics, accessories, and shoes you can find.   The kind people behind seoul allowed me to pick shoes within a budget. It was difficult to form a conclusion considering the rarity of free shoes, and the rarity of shoes with fur kissed sides.
  It was as if I was dreaming. . . .

The package took only a few weeks to arrive. And inside the package was the most beautiful prize.  Four pairs of well structured, earthy-colored, adorably-designed shoes.   The shoes are comfortable, and more importantly, they are beautiful.   They will hug my feet for all seasons. Whether I'm tracking foot prints in the snow, or I'm dancing through the summer moss.
  I finally have my shoe collection, and life is but a dream........

Thank you for reading.
Kisses !!

    The shoes and fur are great! Nice snag amy! You deserve the 1000 followers

  12. Mmh so even if fur and snow obviously flirt with your feet I can't help BUT see in this so nonchalantly sensuous "one bare shoulder effect" a (mischievous-ly precocious) spring / summer's allegory . . .
    ps: I warmly wish you All The Best for the New Year Dear Amy !!!
