Vintage Baby Shoes!

Hope you all had a great day!!
I have been working on baby shower favors today. My daughter Amanda is throwing her friend Jen a baby shower in May. We already know it's a boy, so Amanda chose blue and brown for the colors of the shower.
In the previous post you saw the baby shoes that I picked up at the flea market.
This pair was actually given to me by my friend Jennifer who was a vendor at Sundays flea market.
This little decoration will be going on top of a diaper cake my daughter is making for the shower. A cake made from diapers, really cute.
I laced the shoes with ribbon, added some pretty blue crepe paper, and a flag that I made.
Now I am going to go relax, as I was working on 50 mini cones for the shower. Will post pictures as soon as they are done.
Have a wonderful evening.
Chat again soon.

I can't wait to see the pictures! How fun!
And what treasures you found at the flea market. I'd love to go with you sometime. Flea marketing is one of my top favorite things to do!

You are amazing! You can take an ordinary object and add just the right flair! And what chic colors instead of the baby blue! Have a great day, Rosemary!!!

So cute, Rosemary!! We are having a baby shower here in May too. I just realized I better get going on that. sigh. time flies. Ours is for a girl, but her Mommy hates pastel pink, so we're doing Bright Green and Bright Pink.

Oh I love those diaper cakes!!!

I have seen them with kitchen towels or bathroom linens for brides, too.

But none with such a cute topper as you have made. I want to see those mini-cones, hurry!!!

How cute! I wish that we had a flea market like that most people here eare still way into primitive style so that is pretty much the only kind of shop we have here....boo hoo!

My sister-in-law did her baby boy's nursery in these very same colors -- they do go so well together!

LOVE the idea of threading vintage baby shoes with newer or different ribbon. Brilliant!
