Shoes, shoes, and, oh yes......more shoes!!!!

Well, it was an interesting thrifting day....I guess it's true what they say. Once you find one item in a category it just multiplies from there....:)
The shoes above are a stunning find and they are now for sale (sniff, sniff) in my etsy.
Can't keep it all....

These little cuties above will also be making their way there this weekend. Love the bells.

These next two "little" pairs I have to keep, have to. They both measure about 3 1/2 adorable inches long, must have been doll shoes....

Oooooh la la.........


Sigh........a last look. I added the silk shoe keepers, they just look like they would be friends.

I've just stumbled upon your lovely blog... such a treat! How wonderful to see a precious pair of Chatty Cathy shoes... I still have my doll, with her dress and shoes, but she lives in the attic. Really should bring her down! Thank you for sparking a sweet memory for me... I'm looking forward to visiting again...
Blessings...

Gail,
I am a shoe junkie too! My faves are the beat up brown leather buster browns. I just picture the little children wearing them to school & to play in, being passed from one brother to another. Love them. Your collection is amazing, hard to choose a fave, but there is something about this litttle blue ones that just gives me chills! Lisa
