if the shoe fits...


I found a bit of time to create today

I found these pointy old shoes a few years back
(and they just sat on the shelf)

I painted them white

and added pretties

 the right shoe

 and the left

The best part?

One thing...finished

I'm not sure where these will land yet

At the shop or etsy?

Either way...

It is a great fit!

Love the shoes - reminds me of when I was a kid, and "polishing" our white leather shoes with the sponge applicator on the white shoe polish bottles. Happy White Wednesday - Tanya

Gosh, it's always so much fun to see what you do with "things"...and of all
the projects you have waiting in line.
Shoes are always fun to work with ...these are just great !
The kind my mother use to wear I remember.

Sweet shoes! Don't you wonder who wore them and if she danced in them?

The shoe fits every time you add your touch to it. That is so pretty. I have a really rough old pair of my great great great Aunt's shoes and now I know how to make them pretty again.
Hope all is well with you.

I LOVE what you did with this cute little shoe Rene! I believe it fits perfectly.
I hope you have had a little sun this week. We have actually had two sunny days in a row here. Hurray! It has been so gloomy and dark here for a couple of weeks, and I think I was going a little crazy.hehe
