Decorating is endless.
Cooking never ends.
Gardens are always changing.
And best of all shopping goes on and on!

Hence the name,
Open Ended!

~Flip Flop Love~

It's that time of the year again in the northern Midwest.

You know that time when the weather starts to warm up.
And as always I don't know if I should pull out the
summer clothes and put away the winter ones.

Is it to early?

Meanwhile my closet turns into this giant mess
of summer and winter!


And the SHOES!

That's the worst.
I love shoes!
I have way to many of them.

my real weakness is flip flops!!!

I can remember as a kid begging for a pair of flip flops!

Back then there were two kinds of rubber flip flops.
The kind that had the thingy between your toes
and the kind that didn't.
Of course the cool kind were the ones with the toe thingy.
I got the ones without! :-(

But over the past several years flip flops
have made a strong come back.
Ones with jewels, ones made of fabric,
bright colored ones, rubber ones.

Pretty much any thing you can imagine they make!

(I can't say I ever imagined these!)

My two favorite pair of flip flops have a leather bottom and
one has a copper strap the other a black patent strap.
I am hoping they still make them.
(Much to my daughters dismay!)
Because I might need a new pair this year.

What does you favorite pair look like?
And does you daughter cringe when you wear them out in public?

Maybe it's time to put away the boots and bring out
ALL the flip flops!!

Have a great weekend!!

{P.S. While I was looking for photos, I found my favorite flip flops online
and ordered a couple pair.
