The Witch Goes To The Ball!

Hi all!
Hope you are having a good week. Here it is Wednesday already.
If you remember, back in May I bought some old Victorian shoes at a flea market. I said I wanted them for Halloween.
This is the result. They started out faded and blah, that is why they were only $25 instead of $85 or $90 which is what I usually see them for.
My husband spray painted them black for me. Then I embellished them with ribbon, crepe paper and glass glittered stars.
Now I think the witch can go to the Halloween Ball!
I am just starting to add a bit of Autumn and Halloween to my house, very slowly. Don't want to rush it too much.
Have a great rest of your week.
Chat again soon.

Bewitching! It is "bootless" to resist them; they are the "sole" of witchy fashion!

How lovely, Rosemary.
The Cinderella of Witches, and wonder if she will get to go to the ball in them.

These are perfect! I agree with Draffin Bears. They look like they were made for a Cinderella witch.
