Famous Footwear - Me and Michelle Obama


I'm flattered to be in the same blog post as the First Lady. My new friend, Charlotte (Daffodil Planter) Germane, asked a few garden "rock stars" (I guess I'm a celeb now) to send her a pic and some words about their shoe-du-jour when it comes to the garden. Hands down (or is that feet), it's Crocs for me.

If you've got a minute, pop over for a fun read - also in the line-up are Angela Davis (blogging Gardening In My Rubber Boots), Shawna Coronado, Dianne Benson in her too, too sexy leopard skin footware, and, of course, the First Gardener.

Read it - Daffodil Planter

I've read the post at Daffodil Planter and you are the only one with crocks - does it have something to do with the climate you have :)

Ewa: Great to hear from you! Certainly, living in a mild climate makes Crocs more practical, but I just think they're amazingly comfortable. Other than getting dressed up for special occasions, I live in them. Easy to get on, easy to clean, good arch support. Actually, I don't like them for gardening because dirt can easily get in. Be well!

I am a 'croc' girl myself. My first avatar on social network Myspace about five years ago was a shot of my light pink pair.

Heading over to check out the 'celeb' page.

Happy Gardening - you make garden reads super fun!

Susan: Didn't know. Guess I'm going to be a sell-out, cuz I ain't changing my footwear. Haven't found a better shoe for my tootsies for day to day. When they've lived a good life, I make them into hanging planters of succulents.

sorry, and i'm not fascionista, but those things are so dorky. it doesn't matter who else wears them. aren't they made of some type of plastic, too? sorry, not being more positive here. just someone needs to tell you the truth.
