I took this picture last year, thinking it might make for a unique Christmas card. There were people at work who were egging me on. (They know about my hoes.) I didn't make a Christmas card with it, so decided that this will be my electronic Christmas card on my blog, at least for a few days. What do you think? How about that snowman garden statue?

I’m not a big footwear person. When it comes to my regular day time office environment work, I have 3, maybe 4, pairs of shoes that I wear… black, navy, brown.
