The Crazy Suburban Mom: Retro Toesday lives again

Retro Toesday lives again

As far as my 50's retro aqua canisters go...

50's aqua

I'm no farther along in knowing what to do with them except love them and stare at them and use them as room candy.  And look how well they go with my other room candy...

As for the Toesday thing - I am the laughing stock of my family. After yesterday's doctor's appointment and the threat that I might have to go to a FOOT DOCTOR I decided to pay attention to the toe and whaddaya know that thing is red.  I didn't notice it before because I've not looked at my feet, well ever and my doctor didn't notice because when my feet are cold they turn blue.

Well, blue, white, red, and purple - So the chance of seeing one toe being redder then the others is pretty much nil.  But I took my shoes off last night and looked and Holy Mother of Foot Ailments Big and Small, it is red.

Then I took pictures and put them up on Flickr and called my family over who first looked at them.  Then at me.  Then at each other.  Then all ran to the bathroom simultaneously lest them pee themselves laughing.

Apparently the screaming hoot of it all is my plan to print one and show it to my doctor since my cold feet turn into a kaleidoscope in her office so this is only way she is going to see it.    I got the last laugh though. 

My kid  opened up a tab around midnight to find a hi-res close-up of my feet.  Revenge is a dish best served with a side order of cold feet.

LOL, you poor thing with your toe and your poor family having to look at it! (I hate feet as a general rule)

I love your gorg canisters, I have a turquoise set myself, but I actually use mine in my kitchen. Darling why on earth aren't you using them?! I recently scored the snowflake divided casserole (sans lid) but in the white with turq flakes version. I also nabbed a snowflake garland one in the same store WITH the lid on the same day. Wooot! Go me!

If I wasn't such a slacker, I'd post the pictures I took like 3 weeks ago....

That's a nice looking bunch of eye candy my friend. I'm definitely jealous, but just a bit :)

You might have a broken toe. I had one a couple of years ago and my doctor couldn't be sure if it was sprained or a hairline fracture even with an X-Ray...I spent the entire summer with socks and sneakers to keep it still it, but now it's ok.,

Girl I think you should consider being encased in a suit of armor! Maybe you should chill with your foot in the air.

P.S. Love the aqua.
