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....
