  1. Now there’s a good man! As much as I’m Shoe Girl, I’m also all about the comfort and I have the World’s Coldest Feet. My husband used to mock my penchant for wearing wool socks until the first night I came to bed without them.

    He’s bought me quite the nice collection of fuzzy slippers and socks through the years. Isn’t it wonderful when they understand?

  3. Aaaw! I’m all warm and fuzzy and uggy inside!
    I bought mnyself suome wooly slipper the other day – because just like you I hate the cold and especially cold feet. And I donlt know why I ended up in this cold, cold cold country!

    • I can’t imagine living in a cold, cold country after growing up someplace warm. It must be difficult for you, and I’m sorry about that. Good for you, though, treating yourself to warm slippers. 🙂

  4. Oooh, those are gorgeous…and so is your hubby. What a sweetheart.

    PS: I can’t stop looking at that picture. I might just have to put it on my Santa list… 😀

  5. OOh, wow!!
    Those are *awesome*!!
    And I know just what you mean about those perfect presents that make your friends say, “Whaaa?”

    Mine was a set of carhart coveralls with an arctic hood.
    They don’t sell them in women’s sizes around here, so he hd to get me a medium men’s pair, and I have to roll the bottoms.

    I look like the longlost borwn teletubby when it’s 20 below and I have to go feed–
    but I’m WARM!!!!

    • You live such an amazing life, Liz. I want to know more about you every time you give me one of these little snippets. My favorite book of short stories was “All Creatures Great and Small,” by James Herriot. I just loved reading about him visiting the animals and traipsing around in barns and in meadows…I’m imagining you in a similar setting, with those coveralls on. Cute!

      • Oh, I *loved* James Herriot’s stories!!
        We had the whole set, plus the dog and cat stories, and watched the series when it was on PBS.
        But my mom says my love of farming dates back to a petting zoo I visited about age 2, when I laid my head on a little lamb’s head, and said, “Awwwwww”.
        We do have sheep– and I’ve delivered more than a few babies, so I can totally relate to James’ stories!!
        I’m also grateful my lambs are only a few pounds and do not require traction chains for difficult delivery, like cows. Yikes!! Helped a neighbor with one like that once(the calf was probably 150 pounds, and dead. ugh).
        I’d prefer not to repeat the experience!

  6. Oh yeah, love the slippers! I’ve got the cold feet thing too, of course I do live in one of the cold places on earth! I finally found the solution – heated floors. With slippers. And socks.
