It seems fitting that this is my post to celebrate Tif Fussel's birthday - Happy Birthday, Tif! Firstly, the reason I didn't buy new shoes, was that I was spending a year along with Tif and many other bloggers, without buying new stuff. The Challenge of the Utmost Kind. But the shoes have finally been retired, and, like so many other bits of footwear round our house, have been turned into planters. I think they look fun and I enjoy still being able to see them. However, they have another second life (or I suppose, a third life...) on the internet now, thanks again to Tif. When she saw my post about the poor, dead old shoes going for a final walk with me through our town, she suggested the photos would go down well on the Flickr page for Shoegazing, which is run by Uppercase Magazine.
