Pedicure Party Invitation




click to enlarge!


With spring just around the corner I thought it would be fun to have a pretty piggy party. :)  Even though we've had snowflakes fall just this week, there is a different slant to the sun and a little hint of warm temperatures here in Ohio.  I know some of you southerners are already in your sandals and flip flops!  But we northerners are anticipating that wardrobe change to happen in a few weeks.  To get ready, I thought it would be fun to celebrate by getting those first pedicures of the season, whether done at home or professionally.  And it would be even more fun to share what your pretty toes look like!

The Pedicure Party will be Monday, March 26th.  I'll post a Mr. Linky that day so we can visit each others blogs and see your pretty toes.  You can do a regular basic polish, a french tip (my favorite), or get really creative with some intricate nail art.  I've even seen decals for your nails in the stores, sold alongside the polish.

   You have a whole 18 days to get ready!  No pressure! ha.
Hopefully by then we'll be wearing flip flops at least part of the day!


If you have a daughter at home, it would be fun to do them together!


And yes, guys!  You are welcome to join in!  Look at "Mike" here.  I got his photo from googleimages.com  I guess he thought some palm trees and sunsets would be fun for his vacation look.  Not sure if the hairy knuckles detract from the look or add to my giggles. :)


I'd love to have you join in!  You can take this photo and link 
 back to your blog's sidebar if you would like and invite your friends, too!

And wouldn't it be fun to have a giveaway?
One participant will be randomly chosen to receive a gift from me.
Details to come in the near future.


And thank you, Martha, for the great party idea. :)

  2. Oh you just reminded me I have a nice gift voucher for the beauty salon unused from my January birthday. As it's Fall here & these little piggies are just about to be hidden away in thick tights & dress boots, but I'm going to make a pedicure booking RIGHT NOW!

      Delete
    3. and some guys paint his nails betsy?

      Delete
    4. well, you should let Esperanza join my party! :)

      not sure too many guys do, but I did find that picture on google. hahaha. And I thought it would be fun to invite them to join in if they wanted to!

      Delete
    5. I use french pink but in my hands!Of course I cut my nails, put cream and all but not paint ha! I love pink nails !

      Delete
    6. She love black or red (lol) sometimes paint her nails red but at chool they dont let her (lol)

      Delete
    7. I love the pink, too. The bottom left photo of the pink toenails with little white flowers is my favorite. :)
      Well, let paint your toe nails pink just this once!

      Delete
    8. Betsy you are so funny, tomorrow I will show Esperanza all these nails, I wanna see tomorrow what PAT will say? Betsy remember the horrible nails that he showed time ago? wait somethin he will say (lol)

      Delete
    9. yes...show her! I want to know her favorite!

      Pat will say something, of course. lol.

      Delete
    10. I think will send you these horrible nails you know:)) this is the thing he likes (lol)

      Delete
    11. well that won't be allowed. You have to show your own photo, not one found on the internet. You could show Esperanza but he can't show that ugly zombie foot. hahaha.

      Delete
    12. Pat always has his say
      Even if Betsy is slow posting and he is alseep at his bay..haha

      Delete
    13. we were both late on this site
      you were asleep and I was dining out that night!

      Delete
    14. That's why you just set it to go
      Whether or not you are there at your show
      Same time every day
      Keeps my ocd at bay..haha

      Delete
    15. Sorry. Did my lateness in posting ruffle your fur?
      I didn't have the thing completely written, Sir.
      So couldn't go the pre-scheduling route.
      Too bad you had to sit there and pout!

      Delete
    16. Maybe I should tell you there is no new post tonight
      Don't want my personal schedule to give you any fright!
      I want my party invitation to stay up one more day
      Have you picked your nail color yet? Will it be blue or grey?
      hahaha.

      Delete
    17. LOL yes you threw off the cat's schedule being so late
      Taking some rhyming off his plate
      But I won't pout too much at my sea
      For zombie feet will cause all glee
      I think they'll go with blue
      With maybe some orange too

      Delete
    18. Oh dear.
      This is going to be bad, I fear.
      But maybe I should be flattered
      that you'd disrupt your 35 drafts in blogger
      just to join my piggie party.
      You should let Cassie do something pretty. ha.

      Delete
    19. On that day it was only Tarsier Man and Drazin going at it
      So I'm sure I can postpone their fit..haha
      I'll have to think of something all toed up
      To make you spit coffee back into your cup..haha
      Got the title of the post
      Now just need to boast
      Miss Priss already had socks and stuff on her feat
      Anything else she would not find neat..haha

      Delete
    20. yeah Drazin can wait
      although that he will hate.
      You shouldn't always speak for Cass
      she's a smart little lass
      and has opinions of her own
      but you just drone and drone. lol.
      You could photoshop some color
      on her claws to look like no other! haha.
      A title already you say
      "Oh this will be good!", I say with dismay!
      :)

      Delete
    21. LOL yes it will work well
      For the tale I have to tell
      As an idea has come to pass
      And it may just involve Cass
      Then at my bay
      I will take great delight in causing dismay..haha

      Delete
    22. causing dismay is just like you
      but that I already knew!

      Delete
    23. haha yep take pride in doing that
      At my mat

  6. Love all the images! I am sitting here in my bathrobe as I have a day off (and finally time for blogging) and will do my nails, both hands and feet later today.;) Love all the images! Thanks for the inspiration.;) It will be at least 3 months before it is warm enough to put on sandals here.;)))
    Have a great weekend,

    2. How do I "take" the button on your sidebar?

    4. The Feet Feat comes to Fruition.

      I will throw and invitation out there somehow. And now I must be off to practice my nail decorating skills. Not to mention get my feet all softened up in preparation. Where's the lotion?

      Delete
    5. I found tutorials on how to make the button but I can't do it! haha. I don't know it the steps are outdated with blogger's new setup or what.

      Anyway, you can take the little photo and the link I provided. That way if someone clicks on the photo on your sidebar, it will take them back to this post.

      I recommend sitting on the kitchen counter and soaking your feet in the sink. But close the window blinds first. lol.

      Delete
    6. There are no window blinds... Perhaps a good soak or two in the tub will do the trick. It would be nice tonight anyway. I'm freezing.

      I have made a nice little invitation on my blog, and I will endeavor to pull it up as a reminder next week too.

      Delete
    7. Oh how fun. Thanks, Martha. I'll come have a look. :)

      I'm cold, too! It's quite cold and windy tonight!

      Delete
  11. You are sooo creative Betsy! I LOOOOOVE the collage of all the painted piggies...I just had a pedicure a couple of weeks ago, so my toenails are painted purple, but nothing else fancy on them. I'll see if I can be creative before your party. Thanks for the invitation!!

  13. Sounds like fun. My toes are always painted but usually in a plain boring red or pink. I love patterns and colors in my art, but what I wear even in clothing is usually plain solids. My daughter is the one who plays around with her toes and nails. Here in Va. a lot of people have been wearing flip flops almost the whole winter! Have a great weekend! :-)

    4. You know, Gloria...you said you never paint your toe nails, only your finger nails? I am just the opposite! I rarely paint my finger nails because it just chips after doing dishes one time. But I do my toes and that lasts several weeks! ha.
