Baby Shoe Collection

One of my favorite collections is 
Baby Shoes
So many story's to tell in those
worn soles and tattered shoelaces

Leather toddler shoes, brown and white
The brown pair have traveled many miles as the soles
are almost worn off....
How many little one's wore those shoes, lots and lots....

Small baby shoes ... almost new 
child's white prayer book  and vintage hairbrush

These are my favorite...
brown baby shoes that have been bronzed
many years ago, as they are starting to flake

Bronze baby booties 
my first bronze addition
 Cute baby shoes tucked inside a strainer

My only pair of vintage high top button shoes
They are so hard to find for the right price

Bronze shoes...vintage white leather shoes...baby booties
This gathering is displayed in my "Shabby White Bathroom"
The wood rack was a thrift store find 
I painted it cream, added mustard yellow in some places
then put crackle paint over the mustard areas
sanded and distressed and gave a final coat of "old english"

Got to have a little Shabby somewhere....

Just a Reminder

First Anniversary Giveaway

My first year was filled with
New Friends~~
Primitive Topics~~
 Sharing your knowledge
gave me the insight and courage
to move beyond country and into the
wonderful world of Prim

Laughter and Tears~~
  Sharing our daily life experiences,
excitement from simple flea market finds,
sadness from losing something
or someone special...

What a difference a year makes~~
Ordinary days are magical days
Nothing special
but then again
Nothing tragic either

Thank You to all of my inspiring followers
As a special thank you I am hosting a giveaway
for all of my current followers
Please do not post this give away on your blogs or sidebars  
as this is just for you,
my dear primitive friends who have taken the time to follow along

All you need to do is comment on this post.
I will announce the winner one week from today
Wednesday, June 29

It has taken me awhile to put together a fun
handmade from the heart give away.
In fact it is still a work in progress....
First ~~A handmade tote/purse
Made from a red & cream ticking towel
We can all use  another tote for flea marketing!

The front pocket was made using a muslin bag from
Sullivan's Mill ~~ Silver Dollar City ~~ Branson, MO

The inside pocket has the recipe for
Hillbilly Cinnamon Rolls
from the backside of the Biscut Bag
 The tote is still a work in progress as I will be
adding a vintage trim around the top.

Now the surprises begin....
Inside will be loaded with lots of goodies.
Crow mug from the Molasses Collection
1776 Prim Flag
Fabric Stash

Cookbooks and Cookie Cutters
Their will be more....
But that will be a surprise for the lucky winner
As she unwraps all of her goods.

Wait ~~ there is more
There will be a second winner
A third winner
No tote, but some fun prim goodies, indeed.

 Once again, thank you, dear friends
 for taking the time to enter My Cabin
Where you never have to knock
The front door is always open

I also have to thank Mr B for
updating our server to high speed.
It was then, I could enter the world of bloging,
and meet all of you...

Oh no, why am I falling apart,
could it be the Big 60 is coming soon...
