I am joining Nancy at Southern Lady for THE SHOE SHOW. Nancy, thank you for sponsoring this fun event. Be sure to go over to Southern Lady to get the links to all of the other Shoe Show postings and to read Nancy's wonderful "Shoe Show" post. I would never have thought that a "Shoe Show" post could be inspiring, but Nancy's is!

Great post Laurie, Can you imagine actually "wearing" some of these shoes. The blue platform heels just crack me up... well girl I would tobble right over never to get up again... Think I'd best stick with my good ole "semi" flats..lol... hugs ~lynne~

VERY interesting, Laurie. LOL! I wish I could join and you know I got shoes! I just gave away 6 pairs to charity today after cleaning the garage here in FL. I can't believe I have more in here too....Christine

Hello Dearheart...

Ohhh...how much fun! Love seeing your Mama's baby shoes...they are really different from the baby shoes of today, aren't they!

Love your shoe invitation...it's just darling! Ohhh...and those pretty pink shoe cookies...too pretty to eat, I think! Hehe! Although I have been back on my low fat diet for about 3 wks. now...I would eat them!!! YES I WOULD!!! Hehe!

Girl, I must admit that I that I'm not much of a shoe girl...I bet I have less than 10 pair of shoes and I really only wear two pairs of those...my sandals and tennis shoes! Hehe! Same thing with purses...I only have 3! I must have missed out on that estrogen gene! Hehe!

Love ya, my friend! Have a fabulous Friday!!!

Shoes and cookies TOGETHER. Life doesn't get any better than that. Your mom's shoes are so sweet.

Miss Laura Lu/RMS4291960 said...

Argh! I forgot about that! I was supposed to do this! Maybe I'll run home and take a few quick snapshots! Your shoes are so sweet! Also, Susan @ thoughtsfromovertherainbow called me yesterday and we're planning next Friday the 31st to get together and hope you can make the trip over! We haven't planned anything yet. Would it be better if we met you in West Memphis? or downtown? Susan said something about trying to hit some garage sales Friday and going to lunch! Let me know...my email is laura29@bellsouth.net! God Bless! Lauralu :)

You certainly went all out for our shoe party and I enjoyed it. But what I loved the best were those shoe cookies; yummy and so cute.

Coloradolady said...

Cute post...I always just have a fit over your pictures...I can not figure out how to do that even with your wonderful instructions. Thanks for stopping by and seeing my first quilt top finished, it has been a process that is for sure!

Those are really cute shoe cookies!! I am assuming you made each and every one!!

How'd you get a picture of my shoe tree? ~ Robyn

mbkatc230 said...

What a cute post. I love your mom's shoes, just adorable and how neat that you have them. The shoe gene missed me (unless you count the 30 pair of flip flops I have), but it certainly made it to my daughter! We call her baby Imelda around here. Fun post. Kathy

mythoughtsmyvoice said...

You still have you Mom's shoe? Wow!

I think you've covered 3 pictures/mosaics all about shoe. from a very sweet/sentimental one (you Mom's) to the crazy ones (like the hose tree and shoe as a feet!) :-)

Hi Laurie :)

Those old baby shoes and forms are so sweet! The crazy shoes, not so much LOL Although my shoe pile in my closet looks a bit like that shoe tree right now LOL

Cindy J. said...

Dear Laurie, you always have the best posts...something cherished and sentimental and always some fun... love your Mama's baby shoes.. I love shoes myself..beautiful shoes of soft leather or fabrics really are an artform..but mostly I am in my flipflops.. year around.. you know us Califorians! Love, Cindy

Bellamere Cottage said...

Hi Laurie!

Cute post! I normally live in flip-flops, but with all the nasty leg problems I'm thinking of making some changes. One of the little bloggie gals just bought a darling pair of Ecco's in red, so I picked up a pair in black for myself. Can't wait to try them out. I love shoes and they're just so important to the whole outfit....I guess I'm going to have to drop the vanity though and get something that works better for me. :-)

Good luck on the giveaway!

Hugs,
Spencer

Mrs. B. Silly said...

Well they say money doesn't grow on trees but apparently, shoes do! That's a good thing. I'm going to have to plant one of those shoe trees!
