~ ~ ~ Vintage Baby Shoes ~ ~ ~ for White Wednesday

Hello and Welcome to my blog today!
I am joining in for WHITE WEDNESDAY this week which is hosted by Kathleen at FADED CHARM ! Be sure to stop by and see all the yummy shades of white pretties shared by loads of white loving bloggers!

I have collected VINTAGE BABY SHOES for quite some time and as you can see they are quite addicting :-)

My favorite ones have the cute "punched" hole designs in the toes :-)

I also collect antique teddy bears and the big ones love to wear baby shoes on their huge feet!



Wrinkles and creases and many coats of polish . . .
Knots in laces and jingle bells too!
If you have been blessed with children of your own I hope this was a trip down memory lane today!

Hugs and Smiles,
Lynn

  3. Hi Lynn... first time I've visited your blog, but I've purchased from you on Ebay a number of times... so glad to have found you here!

    Love the baby shoe collection... my shoe collection - ballet - pink not white... there's something really precious about a pair of shoes... white or pink... that a little one has worn!

  4. I can't imagine anyone not liking baby shoes - as Katie said, everyone must be collecting them. I saved my children's first pair of booties but sadly I don't have their first little leather shoes. I make pin cushions from the ones I have collected and a few with vintage paper and silk flowers. Now I need to come up with another way to use them because my collection is getting too big!! Brenda

  13. Hi Lynn,
    Thought I would come by and say "Hi"
    I love all the pictures of the baby shoes...So sweet knowing all the chubby baby toes that used to fill them....I wished I had saved my childrens as they would have been wonderful little gifts to them when they were older!

    I am sorry about your Maxxi! After loosing our Bassett several years ago, we just have not been able to get another.
    Sweet Regards,
    Jil
