To bronze or not to bronze . . . was definitely not an option my mother worried about when she contemplated what to do with our baby shoes once we outgrew them. Our treasured baby shoes became infamous coin purses she filled with money and hid around the house in case of emergencies — LOL!
The baby shoes above were purchased in the summer of 1950 and were worn by my oldest brother Elgin. Then they were passed down to my brother Jon who began wearing them in the summer of 1953. The baby shoes featured below were purchased in the spring of 1960 for yours truly . . . me!
Both pairs featured above were purchased from Foley’s Downtown Budget Store at 1110 South Main Street, Houston, TX. One thing I do know is that we definitely got our money’s worth, and then some, out of these baby shoes!
I would really like to display our baby shoes in a creative way in my home. I saw some interesting things to do with baby shoes on Pinterest last week – http://pinterest.com/pigzfly/baby-shoes-what-to-do-with-them/. Check out the link and tell me what you think and if you’ve done something creative with your baby shoes, or your children’s baby shoes, let me hear from you!
