stepping into spring...

Happy Friday to you! It is a beautiful day here ~ the sun is shining, the birds are singing and tomorrow looks even better for the first day of Spring! Cindy is hosting Show and Tell Friday again over at her beautiful blog, My Romantic Home. Thank you Cindy! As we step into Spring (with a spring in our step!) I thought I would share with you these wonderful vintage shoe forms...
Beautifully embellished with ribbon and vintage jewels... Mary Ellen from the shop created these pretties. (Thank you Mary Ellen for mentioning me in your blog ~ you are so sweet!) I have been looking and looking at these for weeks and finally bought my two favorites. I am trying to find a place for them to nest... I just love this vintage pin. It is missing a few stones but it is still wonderful...
I love the other one too ~ it is smaller and I think the buckle is so unique...
Missing lots of stones but I love it! I have them in my bedroom, trying to see which one to keep and which one to put in my Etsy shop. Do you have a favorite? While I just adore them both I think I might want a smaller one and perhaps use a piece of vintage jewelry from my own collection. Well, enjoy your weekend and take some time and step over to Cindy's to see what everyone else is showing and telling about! Welcome Spring!
