I'd like to show you one of the coolest things I have in my possession. It is my great grandmother's shoe. It was made by her 60+ years ago. The funny thing is, that as a child this shoe was at my grandmothers house in a small display case behind glass and I grew up thinking it was made of glass. It's not. It is JUST a shoe spray painted gold and covered in coloured seashells. BUT....I love that it's her shoe. I love that she wore such high heals. I love that she was creative enough to put this together. I love showing my girls something from their maternal past. I love that I think about the amazing women in my family when I see it. I love that it is covered in childhood memories. I think it's lovely.
I think I need to carry on the tradition and make one of my shoe's up.
