SECOND TIME AROUND TUESDAY - Bronzed Shoe Collection Additions

I haven't participated in 2nd Time Around Tuesday at A Picture Is Worth a 1,000 Words for a while, but recently acquired a couple of additions to my bronzed baby shoe collection that I showed you previously.

A year or so ago I passed on a pair of bronzed cowboy boots and had regretted it ever since.  When I saw some again in a local antique mall I grabbed them even though I paid more than I would have liked.  Actually, they were the exact same price as the ones I let slip away.  So all is well that ends well. :)  (I wish my picture was better, but you get the idea.)

Then when I saw the pair below I had to have them.  There's something about the combination of baby shoes and an ash tray that says vintage.

I often tell people the story about my youngest son's birth in 1976.  I was in labor and my husband was sitting there smoking a cigarette when the Obstetrician came in with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth and asked my husband for a light.  Times have certainly changed!

Now head over to Diane's blog for a list of this week's participants so you can see their Second Time Around items.


  1. They are definitely very cute. So glad that you got some back for your collection.

  2. Those are adorable! Can't believe the doctor was smoking. Glad some things change for the better.

  3. Those bronzed boots are adorable!!! And such a funny story about the smoking - that would never happen today, that's for sure!

  4. So all you need now is a pair of bronzed steel toe workboots?

    Just kiddin'

    Cute post!

  5. Betty, Thank you for visiting with me...I'm still thinking about keeping the sewing box. The shoes are adorable and I really think they're perfect on the ash tray; who would have thought?
    I hope Reid's health continues on this wonderful positive path:-)

  6. Betty, I think you were pretty lucky to find the bronze boots to buy this time. they look adorable. The baby shoes are also cute. You have started a collection. smile.

    Personally I am glad cigarettes are now passe'. Yes, time have changed! Some things are a good change and some are not. Such is life.
    Hugs, Jeanne
