Must You Really Do That Here?


I have memories throughout my childhood years of my mother grooming her feet while everyone was gathered around the TV in the family room. To say grooming is very polite. I suppose in the grand scheme of things it was a pedicure but it seemed more like foot surgery. First soaking the feet to softened all of the tough layers of dead skin.  This was followed by lots and lots of peeling skin and picking at corns....well, you get the idea.  Perhaps, if I'd been acquainted with pumice stones back then I could have saved my dear (thrifty) mother so much self-inflicted mutilation.  So this modern living room scene is a tribute to a kinder-gentler version of foot care for mothers well, women everywhere. Note the bottle of epsom salts...And ya'll know how I love my shoes!

I love this modern room with the aged wallpaper and picture frames. Nice mix and very calming. Lovely, lovely! Your funny foot story has my grandma written all over it! Look out for flying toenails! Yes, we've come a long way!

How funny about your mom! Your little scene is wonderful. I can see myself soaking my feet. I'll leave the clipping etc. to another place!
