Your daily dose of pretty: who'da thunk it

Maybe these don't exactly qualify as 'pretty', but to even be able to apply the word 'cute' to a pair of gumboots* is something special don't you think?

Yep, they're cute. Never would have thought I'd call gumboots cute, but look at those little happy spouty whales being all little and happy and spouty:

Of course now that summer's on its way our back yard has dried out, but during winter it's a boggy nightmare - I need these for the times when I sink into the mud while I'm chasing the dogs around the back yard yelling "come back here with my dinner you revolting dog!".

* Gumboots, wellingtons, rainboots - whatever you call them in your part of the world.


  1. And everyone knows that gumboots aren't shoes ...!

  2. I think they are cute, even though I would prefer pink ones;)
