Many times I will buy a trunk, box or other container of items. Sometimes it seems to be a time capsule of someone's life. I am always so torn with these items. It is inevitable that they will be cleaned, sorted and divided into groups to be sold at my cabin. It often feels like a big responsibility, saving bits and pieces of a life and finding ways for them to be useful to someone else. There were a couple of these pairs of sweet vintage leather baby shoes in a trunk I bought. While I find the scuffed white leather baby shoes lovely in their own right, I thought that painting them might make them more appealing for a modern display in a nursery. While painting is my life, I am no artist! I decided that after painting the shoes this pretty creamy color I would add some flowers, so I chose something very simple that I was sure I couldn't mess up! I added some poly after painting to help protect them. I used some vintage ribbon to lace them up and tied them together with this vintage lace. They will be at the cabin on Saturday.
