A French Bench of a Dutch Family! We don't leave our shoes outside the house, only clogs, but we don't wear them any more.The clogs under the bench are only symbolic and not used.
RuneE of Visual Norway began this informal meme on "Bench of the Week". Please visit his site for other participants. PERBS has a whole site dedicated to benches called "For the Love of Benches", which is going on for two years and every day she posts a new bench.
