Now that's an idea...
Let me just say, Emily and Heat - do not go well together, and well 36+ days of 100 degrees... is just about ridiculous! let me rephrase - IS RIDICULOUS. i love texas for many reasons - but heat, unrelenting, dry heat, that makes grown men cry - is not one of them! that said, while longing for ways to get my plant fix - sans swelter - i came across this novel idea, and just couldn't keep it to myself!
Tuscany-based designer, Carmel Walsh - takes us for a 'walk on the wild side' with her botanical infused shoes... great for walking, planting, and being the talk of every summer party!! the best part is - you can wear them INSIDE!!
I can envision these with so many different plantings - something for every season... succulents for summer, little baby conifers for winter, full of herbs for spring... and what about moss - oh my goodness... enough to make you forget all about that darned heat-miser!
