Baby Shoes

You've probably noticed, I kinda like Robins Egg Blue! lol. So I painted this vintage baby shoe with a color that I mixed. See the little birdie nest...then a sprinkling of mini roses. I dyed the ribbon around her neck to match the shoe.
a few glittered pins, a couple of vintage buttons
Cross hatching on the top. I then put on my favorite crackle med. and rubbing light metallic to make the fine cracks and aged it just a bit...I just love the way this turned out.
I forgot to mention, the chalkboard with the nest painted on it, is also for sale on my ebay.
I had these sweet baby shoes. I painted roses on the toes and sprinkled rose petals around I am adding these to my EBAY. I have reg. shoe laces...but should I lace them up with pink ribbon??

I wish you'd paint some big girl shoes for us to wear! :-)

That tray is precious too!

Have a fun week,

Hi Laurie,
I had to come over here from Colleen's blog and tell you how sweet that dandelion chalkboard is!

Your shoes are adorable - pink ribbons in the second pair would be so sweet!

I love your baby shoes. I'm waiting for someone to have a little baby as I think those would be the sweetest little gift at a shower.

Is it hard to dye ribbons? I've never thought about doing that. What kind of dye do you use?

Laurie, you've done it again! This little blue shoe & birdie are beautiful! The cross-hatching & the little nest on the side are really spectacular! Love the new tray!

Do you have any idea how many birdies you've created so far?
