Found: One Tiny Shoe

One little fairy shoe found on the forest floor. There must be little fairy somewhere with one shoe on and one shoe off ~ maybe running too fast?

I finished it! I used vintage millinery flowers trimmed into the shape of little leaves. I placed and overlapped them one by one. This little shoe only measures approx. 3" long! I had the perfect jar to place it in. A very old black pepper jar measuring 4 3/4" tall. Sadly I don't have any more of these petals to complete another one ~ so this one's the only one. Soon to be in my Etsy store!

UPDATE: The fairy shoe has been purchased!! It will be traveling to Sweet Ulla of ULLABENULLA ~ What's so amazing is that as I was creating it, she was on my mind, just thinking how much she would love it!! Funny, huh? Some things are just meant to be . . .

Dawn, that is just precious!

It makes me think that you could do a cute series with a little field journal, with "evidence" of fairy sightings...like a sketch of the fairy shoe under a flowering bush, etc.

Dawn,
This is one of your most precious creations! Perhaps the fairies will leave you more petals to craft them new shoes! Have a great day!

So sweet. I visited our little book shop today and thought of you when I found this book -- http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Book-Flower-Fairies/dp/0723243441 -- not nearly as sweet as our vintage books but a nice read none the less.

Ulla said...
