Doctor's Orders - Stay Off Your Feet!

When I got home from our vacation, I went to the doctor and found out that my blood pressure was through the roof! Doctor's orders were to get off my feet immediately and go on a low salt diet. So here I am, lying here on the couch with my feet looking like two swollen balloons, up on a pile of pillows! My dog is sleeping peacefully by my side, our cat is comfortably perched on top of the couch all snuggly, and I am trying to follow orders and relax!! But as I lay here thinking about all the things I need to do now that I'm back from vacation, I'm finding this Impossible! So here I am on my laptop!

Hmm, my feet seem to be my focus right now so I thought I'd look to see what creative things etsy artists have done with feet! I found some great things on my quest! My favorite being the cookies created by Lori's Place, these adorable pink feet are for birth announcements but I'm dreaming my feet looked that good!!LOL! I quickly fell in love with her amazing cookies. Just getting back from the Jersey Shore, I had to include her gorgeous fish cookies too!

I'm so glad I found her shop full of goodies! http://www.lorisplace.etsy.com/

Here are a few other creative items I found!
