Ah, we must say goodbye to a much loved friend! These slippers were a hand-me-down from my sister Jenny's daughter, Lauren. They have been an important part of Lydia's wardrobe... a "must" on her list of fashionable accessories. She wore these nearly everyday this winter and looked forward to putting them on. I would tell her, "Go find your kitty slippers!" and off she would go to hunt them down. A short time later she would return with a look of triumph and glee, sticking her feet out for some help. Now that we are having such warm spring days we find ourselves going barefoot and in no need of slippers. I will miss not seeing them around.
