Marie's shoe ~

I have cute shoe envy...

My feet are more of the evil stepsister variety - 8.5 wide. Basically relegated to clogs and other clunky looking shoes ~ sigh. Don't get me wrong, I do love clogs, I just wish I could squeeze my foot into something prettier once in a while. Maybe that's why I signed up to do an altered shoe in my Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group.

When I was creating, I couldn't help but think about her country home, that she loved.

A simple life free from the demands, loneliness, and drama of the Palace

With it's cutting gardens filled with vintage roses . . .

Reminder ~ Just one more day to join this month's Giveaway Challenge!

I have cute shoe envy as well.
When I was eight years old a shoe sales men told me I had duck feet- sadly it is true and I have always envied those who could slip their slim feet into such stylish pretty shoes!

Lovely shoe! I wonder what size shoe she truly wore, and if she ever got blisters from the heels!

how inspiring these photos are! the shoes are divine--what would a pair of these set me back? and your version has me packing for the craft store.

Love your shoe creation. I can totally relate to your pretty shoe, uncooperative foot problem. I have a small foot that is square (even toes) with a very high arch, we call them flintstone feet in my family (thanks Dad). Have a great weekend.

Love your Marie shoe! What a different art creation. I have a 6.5 shoe size, but wider feet. UGH! And heels, just can't do them; but so glad for all you ladies that can!
