If you were going to Oz would you have worn the Ruby Red Slippers, or…?


Dorothy wore one pair of red shoes for her entire journey over the rainbow to Oz… I can’t believe she only took one pair of shoes. When I travel I pack far too many shoes, and they’re all in only one colour: black.

There’s a rainbow of shoe colours & styles out there both for footwear and life-wear. What colour shoes do you wear? Does it say something about you?

I’m always surprised at my choice because as a kid my favourite shoes were bright orange sandals with big flower decorations.  I hated the black leather lace-up school shoes that were mandatory, and always looked for a way to flout the rules.

While you’re thinking, read another blog at I just posted on Women In Focus called “walk a mile in my shoes

After you read my blog, and comment please, why not write a Women In Focus blog of your own. You could win a trip to New York or Mt Kilimanjaro…

“I’ve always taken ‘The Wizard of Oz’ very seriously, you know. I believe in the idea of the rainbow. And I’ve spent my entire life trying to get over it.”  Judy Garland


About EllaDee's daleleelife101.blog

After a decade of living in tiny apartments in the inner-city of Sydney, Australia with my husband referred to in my posts as the Gorgeous One (G.O.) while I worked in corporate-legal and the G.O. in civil earthworks we relocated 500 kilometres north in December 2015 to our home in the Nambucca Valley to follow our dream of living simply and creatively. We travelled around Australia in 2016. Now we work on our 1930’s house, have a vegetable garden and a dog plus share a flock of backyard chickens with our neighbour. These days I’m a horticulture student, something I dreamed of doing for many years. From time to time I write about day-to-day life, past & present, people & places, and take snapshots with my smart phone. Copyright 2011-2017.
