Slipper Heaven


Slipper Heaven

This is the beginning of this summer's rubber slipper collection. Yes, I said SLIPPER. After living in Hawaii for over eight years, I do as the locals do and call them SLIPPERS. To be perfectly accurate, I should be saying "Rubbah Slippahs." But then who would know what I'm talking about? No one on the mainland, that's for sure...

A friend and I had a conversation on just this topic last Saturday after lunch... She says they are "flip-flops", and I say "slippers". It's the whole po-ta-to and po-tah-to thing. (But of course, I believe I am the correct one...) :::wink-wink:::

Anyhoo, I'm loving these slippers and can't wait to expand this season's collection. But to be perfectly honest, anyone who knows me well knows that I wear rubber slippers year-round, not just in the summer. I will just wear more subdued colors in the cooler months!

Special thanks to Tenika Morrison for posting her weekly editions of her very own "Funky Finds" on her blog. That's how I found the darling pink slippers on the bottom left. So cute!

Aloha!
