I've Been Sewing and Painting

I found this pair of little tiny shoes at Monticello Antiques last week. I gave them an a new look. I have get some ribbon to finish them up
I painted a rose on each side of this single shoe pin cushion
Old silver from Italy. Ii love the tarnished look
I painted a nest with roses on one side. Love these old shoes
These shoes were worn so much there is a hole in the toe
It was so nice to have a day off!!

Hi, Laurie -
Yes, I'm up w-a-y too early with a puppy who had to go potty! Now he's wide awake and I'm trying to keep him quiet so my sweetheart can get some sleep before he returns to work after the long weekend off today. Thought I'd catch up with blogs and wanted to say hi. I love your work, as always, but this little shoe and the pin keep are my favorite for a long time. The little shoe gives evidence that someone dear wore it a lot! Can't wait to see you at Deepwood - real soon now. ~Adrienne~
