Show and Tell - My Baby Shoes

I enjoy participating in Kelli's Show and Tell even though I can't weekly. Go to Kelli's blog to see many other Show and Tell items: http://www.kellishouse.blogspot.com/

These baby shoes were my own! My mother gave these to me after I was grown and had my own family. She wrapped them up as one of my Chirstmas gifts. She also gave me a "real" gift in a bigger box. I was thrilled to receive my baby shoes and have since displayed them in my house decor. By the way, I don't even remember what the "real gift" was that she gave me!

Recently I have displayed the shoes under glass on the coffee table in the living room.

Get out!!! I can not believe that you still have them. Kelli still has her dresses. I think that I have a touch of envy.
THanks for sharing!!!

I think memories speak loud and clear when you can't remember the "gift" and yet treasure these. Lovely and how very special.

This is beautiful how you have these displayed. I would cherish these and probably forget what the other gift was, too.

Thank you for dropping by my blog. I am sorry for the delay in getting to yours. Busy-ness and then it is Sunday morning here and I have been at church. I love the baby shoes and your clever way of displaying them. Charming. Aren't we human beans funny things - once so tiny, now so big.

Blessings and bliss

How wonderful that your mother kept the baby shoes for you and then presented them as a special gift. The shoes really are a reflection of your mother's love.
