my winter

has been largely black and white
with shades of grey
washes of midnight blue
and a splash of purple

Nice to have a little bit of summer in with the grey, dark winter. Or at least that's what pedicures are to me, summer. Or beach vacation.

Geez, why do my thoughts always lead to that?!

Nice shots...and nice purple polish! I am debating over whether to give myself a pedicure before heading back east. I will be in FL for about a week so there's a possibility of my toes being seen, and I hate having naked toenails in open-toed shoes. What to do, what to do??

Great shots!

Ah, I love your blue door! I agree with justrun, pedicures remind me of summer too; my toes are currently a midnight purple. I'm debating doing my nails this weekend a festive deep red. A little splash of colour helps these grey days along.

Fab feet Barb! :)
I guess that is what we can do for adding some color to these winter months...

Tease.

I love the one with the reflection.

Don't fight it, Justrun. Thinking beach vacation has worked pretty well for you so far.

Absolutely get a pedicure first, Moxie! Purely for medicinal purposes of course.

It's funny, Al, I had the same colour blue door in the previous house too. Evidently I have found my door colour.
It's important to have coloured toe nails around Christmas. You know, for all that pyjama lounging.

You have to take your splashes of colour where you can get them, when the world in buried in snow, Jas. It's what keeps us going through to spring. That and chocolate.

Sorry, Dr M! The rest of me was fully clothed, though.

Thanks, John. I really like that one too. I like the layers that you can see in that one photo.

I love that one with icey crystally stuff on the window. So purdy. And we have the exact same shade of purple nail polish on our toes! Aww!

I like #2 and #4

We're toe nail twins, BAP? This pleases me greatly! It helps make this big old world a little cozier. And confirms my suspicions that you have great taste.
That icy stuff, my dear, we call frost.

Thanks, nursemyra. I like those ones myself, and it was harder than I realised to capture those images.

Ack! stupid canadian winters - thank god for the hot pink toes

Technically, this is still autumn, Wandering Coyote. I'm sure I have just made your day.

Snow and cold and icy roads are abysmally over-rated, Gifted.
