ABC Wednesday - T

(The Wordless Wednesday post is beneath this post.)


T is for Toe Socks .......




colorful striped toe socks



Having a pair of these colorful toe socks was all the rage back when I was a teenager.

When I saw them in a store a couple years ago, I couldn't resist buying a pair for my daughter.

Needless to say, she was quite unimpressed and folded them away in her drawer and soon forgot them.

When they reappeared in the "give away" pile, I couldn't help rescuing them for a few shots.

They will find a spot in my drawer - to be worn when it is least expected - just for old times sake!

  1. Socks tell a tale in our house...Jon's thick blue ones mean we have been out on a bike adventure, his black ones mean he has been working at the workshop, his white ones mean he has been relaxing, watching the TV! LOL!

  2. I do the same thing, claim the little gifts I've given that I find in the "give-away" box. I wouldn't have bought it or made it unless it appealed to me one way or another - and so I must have it. In my drawer. Where I will see it and laugh or smile or maybe even smirk every now and again.

  5. Andrea - they feel a bit odd - the toes really don't like being separated.

  8. Toe socks - that's a new one to me. I don't think they are much used around here. Would add a bit of colour to those dreary old black ones, though.

    Very nice.

  9. Love your T post. I remember those socks too. Sometimes our kids just don't understand our memories.

  10. My daughter gave ME 6 pair of toe socks for Christmas last year and I'm still wearing them.
    Your toes do get used to being seperated after a while. :-)
    I like the bright colors.

  16. Hi Jim - I think it was a girl's thing - I don't recall too many guys wearing them - though you never know these days.

  17. They sure made a colorful picture! I don't think I ever had any but I do remember seeing them.

  18. Those are very colorful! I like to wear many beautiful cat fashions, but I do not like things on my feets. Even colorful socks.

  19. Those are wonderful colors and you did a great job capturing them.

  21. that is her job, to make sure she doesnt like anything that you did!
    Nice pic and good pick

  22. I don't think they would be comfortable, but they sure are cute and as you pointed out, were once a great fad. You've made me remember my black-and-white vinyl psychedelic pattern raincoat that I wore in the 60s, along with penny loafers and knee socks!

  23. My sister had a pair of those. She used to wear tem around the house -- but as I recall the toe bits didn't fit all that well. Very colorful photo subject.

  25. Very nice picture, that brings back memories for me as well, we bought them for the kids but they were in then and they loved them, wow it's amazing how time flies, photos have a way of making you think of the past.

  26. Kathy I love coloful socks especially the one on your photos. I think I have little personal addiction to socks, it is recent, I guess I am changing a bit, lol. Anna :) BTW this is very nice photograph.

  27. I never quite understood these toe socks. My toes don't really like being separated from one another.

  28. You gotta be kidding me..Toe socks?!! LOLOL!!!! How long does it take to put them on KML? Are they warmer than regular socks?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ha ha Rick! Glad they made you laugh! They are kind of a pain especially when the toes don't cooperate. They are made of yarn rather than cotton - so they are a bit warmer, but like gloves , I always thought my hands stayed warmer in mittens.

  30. I agree, Bob, photos do have a way of doing that!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thanks, Anna - glad you liked them!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Great pic! I remember 'toe' socks well, however, I could never wear them because my toes couldn't handle being separated from one another. :)
