shoes and blooms


I have been itching to share this one with you, as I have been in on the big secret that Julie was keeping over at These Are A Few of My Favorite Things. And wow, do you have to check it out over there!! It is the one year anniversary celebration for the challenge AAANNNNDDDD.... we've been pubbed by Scrap Street Magazine! Check out the issue here.

There are going to be 27 winners for this challenge. 27!!! And... I'm sponsoring one of the prizes! One lucky winner will receive $10 worth of Button Blooms or Mixed Media Blooms from my shop. Yippee!!


So what's the challenge, you ask? We want to see Your Favorite Shoes! Oh my... SHOES!! I love shoes! I really wish I had a larger budget to spend on shoes, but I get by and make sure the ones I do purchase are great ones!


The shoes in this picture are my girly-girl shoes. I Photoshopped the picture a bit so it's hard to tell that they are a wonderful champagne color. I muted the colors in the photo and put a wash on it so that it would go with the Victorian look I was going for.


These flowers can often be found for sale in my Etsy shop, but they usually go fast, so if you see them there and want them, I'd scoop them up fast. They are made with a combination of vintage french language papers and sewing pattern paper. So lush and pretty!! The perfect feminine touch!

I hope to see you playing along with These Are a Few of My Favorite Things. As I said, there will be 27 winners, so your odds are pretty good at winning something. And you have until June 14 to complete and post your entry for the challenge, so no excuses! Let's see those favorite shoes!!!


Supplies: Webster's Pages (pp), Studio Calico, My Mind's Eye and Dear Lizzy (rub-ons), Design by Diana Etsy shop (flowers), jewelery, vintage lace, Prima (pearls)
