Little feet

Last night, my mum popped over and said she'd found my first baby shoes in a cupboard and would I like them? I think you can probably guess the answer to that question. 

So cute (is it okay to say that about your own shoes?).

I prefer to think of these shoes as 'vintage,' rather than 'antique,' however. I'm old, but not that old!


  1. I love the colour. I have a similar pair in blue with a strap across which an old teddy is wearing with one of my tiny smocked dresses my Mother made. Vintage is a lovely word - I think it means maturing beautifully. Karen X

  2. Awww how lovely!
    I loved that your dear Mum had kept these...
    I have my baby faux fur blanket in the softest of pinks that was kept in my dear Mums things, from our time as babies...
    I am thinking you treasure 'vintage nostalgia' more, perhaps when you become a little 'vintage' your self......
    Have a Tuesday of loveliness.

    1. Hi Maria
      Yes, my mum is amazing, she never throws anything away. It is lovely to keep something from babyhood and I have a few of my sons' things to treasure, too.
      Have a lovely day, too.

  3. Aw - so cute!
