~ ~ ~ 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,
P.S Before you leave please stop by my Giveaway #14 and enter!

A "JUST BECAUSE" Giveaway For You!

Hello my dear bloggerly Friends! I hope you are well and enjoying a wonderful summer . . . in the garden ~ vacationing ~ or doing whatever brings you the most joy!
Guess what??!! I have another Giveaway for you and hope it is one you will want to enter!
It's a JUST BECAUSE Giveaway ~ no special occasion and just because I love making things for you :-)
This is Giveaway #14 which is for this pretty embellished bottle and one of my original notecards! I have quite a few new notecards finished and will be offering them soon!

The bottle is a tall one measuring 9-1/2" high including the crystal ball glass topper and is embellished with a big vintage pink millinery rose along with newer rosebuds and bitty blossoms, vintage lace and organza bows and a sparkling rhinestone heart charm. Note the band of sweet vintage image roses along the bottom :-)

The notecard is for lovers of tea and teacups and showcases 9 of my favorites on a background of lace with the sentiment "Tea is best when shared with friends". How true!
My photos look so good when I take them but once posted they look all grainy for some reason. I'll have to work on finding out what I'm doing wrong.
The rules are simple and you have the option of receiving 4 entries. Each comment is numbered 1 - ?? in order from the comments left on this Giveaway post only and the winner will be drawn June 30th using the Random Number Generator.
