It's time again for Warm Heart Wednesday sponsored by Ms. Jenny at Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent." This is where we share something that warms our hearts.
This week I'm going to show you some of my bronzed baby shoe collection. I'm on a mission to save these special mementos that end up in estate sales, flea markets, garage sales, or antique malls. I just don't understand why someone didn't want them. They never fail to warm my heart.
I'll save them as long as they aren't too expensive. The most I've ever paid was $35 for bronzed cowboy boots, but this is Texas. They might be less expensive in another state.
The least I've ever paid is $3 at the First Monday Trade Days in Canton, Texas, but most are around $15-$20 or so. I pass if they're too expensive. The cowboy boots were the one exception.
The ones I find kind of funny are the baby shoes that come with ashtrays. A rather strange combination by today's standards. Often they'll be seen minus the glass ashtrays that have probably gotten broken over the years.
Perhaps someone can identify this cute little boy?
I kind of like this little girl's dress shoe. I have the pair. I think they're so sweet.
This was my most recent find and they're probably the oldest shoes. I say that because of the buttons.
Now please head over to Jenny's blog for a list of this week's participants. Thanks for visiting.
