I've got mine set to publish in the wee hours. It's a pic of some of my favorite things, and my summertime decorations on our front porch. Can't wait to see other people's faves! Blessings, Becky G.

Well, Dixie...you are going to think I am out of touch, but I have never heard of UGGS! And you are going to laugh when I say that I hate shoes in general. I don't understand what the big deal is. I don't know why any woman says "I love me some Jimmy Choos" because I'd rather just be barefooted!! lol...Debbie

Dixie's Whimsey said...

Deb... think of the most comfortable thing you've ever put on your feet... then x2... that's UGGS! In the winter time, I come home, put them on and then hate taking them off when I go to bed. I just wish they weren't so casual, I'd wear them to work too!

prof en retraite said...

But please don't take that as an insult to your shoes! They're lovely! I'm just Shoeless Debbie Plate Addict!

prof en retraite said...

OK Dixie...I will go to the shoe store and try them on just for you!

prof en retraite said...

For real...are they slippers or could you wear them like little boots undr jeans? Seriously?

Dixie's Whimsey said...

they are boots, but honestly, I wear them like they are slippers... they are THAT comfortable!... and I wear them with Jeans everywhere except in the garden... They're pretty dirty now... that pic was when I first bought them!

as I said on your blog... if they sold them at Walmart... I think I'd have a pair in every color and style! (well, at least I could probably afford them in every color and style!)

Dixie, the Frankoma teapot was my late paternal grandmother's and one of my treasures! I think I got my love of utilitarian (but beautiful) things from her. She could take a bunch of weeds and put them in a pitcher and make it look like a priceless arrangement. Of course that gift came from her sweet mother who loved pretty things although she had very few. Thanks for visiting! Becky G.

Those Uggs look both comfy and warm. As cold as it is right now in the corn and temps continuing to drop, I would really be lovin' them about now!

Thanks for hosting and hope you have a good Wednesday!

Hi Dixie!

Contest Chris said...

Great Post! In fact it is the Featured Post of the day over at Worth a Thousand Words.

Sylvia K said...

Yours definitely look a lot better than mine!

Bonnie said...

This is my first time visiting you. I found you through Kathy @ Mimi's Garden. This is fun and I needed a Wordless Wednesday!
Thanks! Bonnie

Darlene said...

My daughter (9 years old) has some boots that look like Uggs and she wanted to know if when people said they were Uggs if that meant they were ugly.....HAHAHAHA. I got so cracked up I could hardly tell her that was a brand not a short word for ugly.

Doodles said...

With the weather we're supposed to have in Texas tomorrow, we all need some comfy, warm Uggs! I am participating for the first time in your Wordless Wednesday so I hope I did it right!! Great blog!

Bonnie said...

These look really comfy. I can see why they are favorite!

Dixie's Whimsey said...

Chris... you're a sweetie... thanks for featuring my WW Uggs post on your blog today! How cool is that!

Darlene... you owe an apology to your 9-year old... Uggs, originally from Austraila, got their name from being called "the ugly boots", which was eventually shortened to "Uggs"... your daughter gets the doorprize! ;)

Sylvia - mine don't look that good anymore either... can't wear 'em every day without a little grime!

thanks to each of you for stopping by, and to those that participated this week!

Blogger pals.. special people for sure!

Blissfully, Dixie

Love, love, love your boots!
