Another One Bites The Dust


I'm rather rough on flip flops.
These joined the huge pyre this week.
I shall miss them...
but I have blue,
pink, 
red,
orange, 
and sparkly ones to take their place.
Next time I may save the undamaged ones
to begin a new farm fashion.

Well, I'm thinking "Salvage" here. You have salvaged so many articles.....why not flip-flops, eh :)

Good morning, I can see some kind of flip-flop yard art coming soon! Happy Friday, have a great weekend!

Sandra said...

I can see in our future, FLip Flop Art... I know you can do it, up cycle those flops

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I think you should make a piece of artwork with them.
Remember when those were called thongs?

Flip flops have been around forever.... Yours look like they served you well, Gail!

Karen S. said...

I see that! Wow. But they served you well right!

Jo said...

I was wondering why you don't save the undamaged flip-flops. And there you said you may just do that. I'll watch this space!

That time of year!! It is always sad though. Mine are looking quite worn out. :)

I was just thinking that I need to get a new pair of summer sandals while they go on sale, as mine are almost to the end of their rope.

Mama Zen said...

I do the same thing to mine!

If you have a flip flop emergency you can save them by super glueing a bread clip to the peg end on the bottom! Yes, make yard art with the truly damaged! I cannot wear them, I faint when something is between my toes:)

Debbie said...

oooooh i just hate when that happens!!!! especially when i am far from home!!!

Dreaming said...

Oh, poor you! I hate it when my 'go to' shoes stop working! I'm a Croc person - well, more often a 'Croc Knock-Off'. My favorite pair has worn so thin that every sticker comes through. I think they need to join your flip-flops in retirement!

Hello to my Arkansas Friend, Thanks so much for the birthday wishes. As you know (from my blog), I had a great day.

I cannot wear flip flops (feet in pretty bad shape )---so I'm jealous of those who can...

Hugs,
Betsy

At least you put them to good use. I do the same with mine!

Susan Kane said...

I agree with Alex. Surely a creative mind like yours could construct art or useful item?
I cannot wear flip flops. My feet reject them.

After many years collecting beach litter of rubber thongs (I am an Australian, so mean foot wear) I once had a large collection of left and right items. What I did notice was if I checked the color match, none! 50 left and 50 right equals 100 colors!

Flip flops are the only things Eli ever chewed up. One of my black flip flops so I threw both away and bought a red pair. He chewed up one red flip flop. If I had kept the good black one I would have had a pair to wear. Nobody sees my feet out here in the woods anyway. :)

Arkansas Patti said...

They have bottle trees, why not a flip flop tree?

Country Gal said...

I cant wear flip flops they hurt in between my toes but I like to wear crocks they are my garden summer shoe . I bet you will find something to do with your old flip flops lol ! Have a good weekend !

LindaG said...

I look forward to seeing your first farm pair. :-) Have a blessed weekend! ♥

X said...

heh. As long as they are not all the same foot, you could have a plethora of mixed pairs. I really want a pair of leather sandals again. I have not wound any in years. Its all plastic and synth fabric.

Your sparkly ones sounds interesting ...

All the best Jan

Lynne said...

Is it always the right one that gets ripped, torn, worn out?
Looking forward to the fashion show/statement!

Susan Anderson said...

My daughter is the flip flop queen. As for me, can't stand the feeling of having that thong between my toes, though I used to wear them all the time as a kid.
