I was so pleasantly surprised to see a very extensive miniature shoe collection. I did not take pictures of all the shoes because I want you to be able to be as surprised as I was when I saw her collection. She said that every time she received a gift from her family it was a shoe. She said that she finally asked them not to give her another shoe. But the way that she has them displayed is so beautiful. I asked her if she minded if I took pictures and wrote a blog post and she said she did not mind. So I took pictures and decided to share them with the rest of the guild and our blog readers.
|This says " A woman and her shoes what a beautiful thing"|
|Everywhere I looked in her room was some kind of shoe.|
|Don't she love this? It is a picture frame with little tiny shoes. So cute.|
But what I was really impressed with was her collection of utensils. In the kitchen there were all kinds of kitchen tools. She had stories to go with them too.
|A straightening comb? I asked her if she used it.|
|Elizabeth says this is a spoon that her mom used to ladle out butter from a butter churn.|
|That little basket item, my husband thought was a popcorn popper. But Elizabeth said that you put|
soap pieces in it and put it in water and shake it to get suds. She said it was a good way to use up soap pieces.
|She said that this is a spoon mold. She said her dad found it on his property she said he looked for years trying|
to find the other part to it.
|She loves blue.|
|An old fashioned sewing basket.|
|Elizabeth shares her little iron that she played with as a little girl.|
|A beautiful set of dishes.|
I have been posting pictures of Elizabeth's "duck" on the side bar. Today I found out that it was not a duck but a goose. OOps my bad.
She has him all dressed up for St Patricks Day now. She said that next month she will have him ready for Easter. Fun. Stay tuned.
