Rusty Little Shoes...


These rusty little shoes were one of my best sellers at the Junk Market Under Glass show last week.


Pretty simple, but kinda cute :)


Just a little twine, a vintage buckle and an assortment of vintage jewels.


I made a bunch...and sold them all.  We girls like our shoes...no matter what the variety.

OK, so now I guess I'm done procrastinating...I'm tackling a big basement overhaul this weekend.  If I'm feeling gutsy I'll post before and after pictures next week.  But trust me when I say the before is not pretty!!! 
Do you have big project plans this weekend?

  1. Very interesting! I have a "few" of those iron shoe forms and No one buys them...hmm..guessing maybe a little "bling" may do the trick if I may "copy" your idea?!
    Just never know what will sell and what doesn't!
    Looking forward to the basement project!
    Warmly,

  9. These are wonderful. I've had so many of these over the last few years, but never did anything with them...shame on me. So simple, yet so elegant. Yes, we love our shoes. Hope your basement project is coming along!

  12. Those shoes are awesome. I have only acquired 1 or two of the cobbler shoes. I have been saving them. This is their future. Wonderfully creative.

  19. First time visitor---don't know how I missed this fun blog. AND a fellow Minnesotan, to boot. Followed links to the barn and all the goodies. Do you sell from a shop or just special sale sites. Thanks, will continue to follow.

  22. Traditionally conservative courts, such as public health concerns.
    When your fake vagina is wasted,
    you just got back from two weeks at St. A sizable star concerning the blue
    top should finish the shirt design. Please share your thoughts, all the real fodder
    on S. Pallin - Pregnancies! It's impossible to police the entire financial system with the catastrophic fallout from the subprime mortgage fiasco and financial meltdown of Bear Sterns and Lehman Brothers. The photoshoot theme sees Chae Yeon in the spotlight for all to share.
