Vintage Inspiration - Baby Shoes!

I have always been drawn to sweet little children's things ~ toys, clothes, and darling little shoes! Especially the scuffed and softly worn variety! They are so fun to decorate with and tuck into vignettes!

This shelf is in my computer room and I love looking at it! I've filled it with my ironstone creamer collection and tucked my favorite pair of vintage baby shoes in as well!!


Well worn and well loved!!



Aged to perfection! Aren't they the sweetest thing??


I have done other fun things with them too!

Like pincushions...

and snuck them into little cubbies!





Laceless varieties in front of a picture of my "baby"!!

I'm sharing my baby shoe collection today for Vintage Inspiration Friday with Debra at Common Ground! Hop on over and enjoy all the other inspiration being shared!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget about my giveaway!

  3. Love the baby shoes. There must be some around here for me to play with and there is a pair of little cowboy boots (love those little feet) sitting in the family room. Thanks for the reminder and inspiration.

  10. Julie I am the same way. I have a collection
    of children's vintage toys, tea sets, shoes,
    and anything else I find and like. I have my
    baby shoes from 60 years ago, my son's from
    42 years ago, daughter's from 38 years ago
    and last buy not least my youngest daughters
    from 34 years ago. I decorate with them also.
    I love the one you made the pin cushion in.
    I saw that on another blog and thought about
    doing that with one of mine. I love your little black maryjanes. My older daughter
    had a pair a very simiular to those. Oh and
    I have a collection of vintage children's
    sewing machines displayed in my sewing room.

  13. Love all your little shoes! I have a thing for little shoes too, as well as tiny little baby or doll dresses. I need to figure out how to display some of my favorites, instead of keeping them boxed up. You've given me a few good ideas!

  14. These are just too cute. I really like the little black ones with the sweet straps. Love how you're using one little shoe as a pin cushion.
    Hugs;-)

  17. Yes we all love those sweetie little baby jane shoes. I have a couple pairs and move them around my studio and office.

    I have a friend who has hers she found them in her Mother's house after her death, just precious that Mom's keep them all these years.since people throw away everything these days.
