Tiny and wonderful ~

I can't help it.
I love little things!
Small is so very sweet.....
It's funny what inspires us.

Plus I seem to enamored with doll clothes.
Especially doll dresses.
Not all doll dresses though.
I love white, cream or pale, pale colors.
Stained is fine....a few tiny holes are wonderful too!
But that's a whole other post....

All Things Bright and Beautiful

~ Cecil Frances Alexander ~

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.

The purple-headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset, and the morning,
That brightens up the sky;

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell,
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

I was poking around on Ebay the other night
and found THESE little treasures!!
What are they?
Teeny tiny doll shoes ~ not pairs, just single shoes who've lost their mates.
All of these for a mere 99 cents!

And what will I do with them?
Oh, I don't know....
I can see teeny, tiny shoe pincushions ~
or even fairy shoes in the making....
can you?

See that little boot below?? Eeeek! It's the softest leather ~

Sweet little slippers ~

It seems my very favorites were so small and tattered ~

Look at the shape of this one!

To give you an idea of the size of this adorable boot ~
that's a regular sized glue stick!

Even though this was the largest shoe in the bunch
it's absolutely wonderful!!!!

So, what do you think?
That's a whole lot of wonderfulness for 99 cents, isn't it?
Yes, I did pay a couple of dollars for shipping too.....but still!
I guess no one else was interested in a bunch of single, old doll shoes ~
Thank goodness!!!!

Wishing you a wonderful Thursday dear friends ~
hugs and love,

Lolo said...

Wow! Such a cool find...I wonder where all of the dolls are that are wearing one shoe?!
Im thinking you could make a really cool advent calendar for christmas with all of the shoes. Put little tiny wrapped gifts inside each shoe. How adorable would that be?

Of all the things...these are just too cute. All sorts of little stories to go with each one. Make a tiny tree with lots of the shoes for a sho loving friend. The tiny pincushions would be really sweet too!

What a find! You are so lucky to have gotten these little treasures. I'm so glad Ebay is around, as it gives people like us a way to find things we never would have found, and it saves many many treasures from the junk yard because people like us want them! Good job!

Elizabeth G. said...

Wonderful, wonderful and lovely, lovely. Just adore them, especially the black and white one at the end. It's fabulous.

What are you going to do with these tiny treasures? Hopefully, you will show us.

Congratz on the deal and blessings to you and yours!


Ruby said...

I agree with everyone. Cute! Adorable! Wish I had seen that auction. Some great ideas in these comments. Thanks for sharing!

Rella said...

OMG!! I have loved tiny things all my life..and I just about swooned when I saw these little shoes...oh my. Great find and even if they just sat on a little shelf and never became anything more than what they are it would be perfect! I have a couple of pair myself from vintage dolls and I just adore them. I hope they give you tremendous joy every time you look at them.

Ebay can be a gold mine for cool vintage stuff, especially in the summer when prices tend to be lower. I can picture those little shoes with added embellishments covering a little white feather tree.....

Oh Dawn,,what a deal...there are some pretty special ones in the group. I have a few hundred of these from Mothers doll hospital,,dolls would come in with only one shoe, she would make new ones, in addition to the costume, and get to keep the old things the dolls had. That is how I got them...hey! maybe I have some mates!
