Earlier this week, when I showed you my pioneer nook I had a comment about the “little black shoes” that I have tucked in on one of the shelves. So for today’s Vintage Thingy Thursday, I thought I’d tell you about the little black shoes!
The shoes are definitely “vintage”… but they don’t go as far back as pioneer days! They were my baby shoes. They aren’t the tiny “first pair” that many mothers save and cherish… but my mother saved them because she just really liked them, and she was sad when I outgrew them. I wore them when I was about 18 months old.
I’ve had them for a number of years, tucked away in a box with other mementos of my babyhood… but after we moved into our new house this spring, I decided I wanted to use my keepsakes as decor throughout the house. I’m still working on that, but the shoes have found their place here!
