Children’s Early Shoes

Spanish cave drawings from more than 15, medicine 000 years ago show humans with animal skins or furs wrapped around their feet. The body of a well-preserved “ice-man” nearly 5, viagra 000 years old wears leather foot coverings stuffed with straw. Shoes, in some form or another, have been around for a very long time.

I recently purchased a 18th century child’s shoe. I was excited to find it, even though it didn’t have it’s mate. It’s in pretty good condition for a shoe from the 1700′s. The sole is made of wood and look at all those nails!!

I find ittle black shoes with laces irresistible, they’re so primitive. I have 2 pairs hanging on a peg rack in my laundry room, along with some early aprons.

Little white shoes are perfect for display for those that love a more Victorian look, or cottage look in their home.

I gave these little black shoe to my friend, Louise. She has them on a little chair in her hallway. They look perfect with her early New England antiques.

I think I should look for some shoes to offer on my website again. Maybe I’ll find some tomorrow while antiquing in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

Think Spring everyone, it’s on it’s coming.

    …”Think Spring everyone, it’s on it’s coming.” – Yeah, bay-bee! ;o) *giggle*snort*

    …I too adore old children’s shoes. I can never pass by a pair in an antique shop without picking them up and admiring them. There’s just something about shoes that is so personal, I don’t know why. And I always feel sadness for the one that lost its mate. Silly, yes?

    …Is your home on a historic home house tour? It should be. Just your peg rack in your laundry room alone is just so sweet, I’m certain it’s just a smidgen of what your home is like. :o )

    …Thinking of you & sending warm wishes too! Have a lovely day!

    …Blessings. :o )

    Hello there dear tj. You know how I always love hearing from you!
    You are so kind to comment on the photo of part of my laundry room. My house is not very old, only 60 years old, but I sure do try my best to make it look old. I want to take more photos of my home and have an album of some of my favorite thing on my site. One of these days I’ll do it. Oh, so much to do, so little time!!

    A good way to get exercise for your dog is to go on a run together.

    Your dog will love you for taking him or her outside, and at
    the same time you will be getting fit. Once your dog is done the run with you, he or she will
    be more likely to relax at home.
