40's Shoe Stash...or....Why I Can't Breathe Right
Erin and I went digging at an estate sale yesterday and came home with some treasures. Among them, some beautiful 1940's shoes that had been hidden away in a drawer for 60 or so years. I'm absolutely fascinated by the style and the shapes. What I would do to have these in my size (they are all 6 1/2)
The owner was definitely a woman after my own heart. Besides saving what seemed to be every piece of clothing she had ever owned, we share a bad habit. When switching purses she simply grabbed what she needed out of it at that exact moment and left the rest. Just like I do. Its odd to be going through someone else's purses full receipts and kleenex when I have enough of my own at home.
Also, I inhaled so much "age" in the apartment that I'm still not breathing quite right. I'm convinced that what I need is a bit of medicinal tequila, perhaps with some salt and lime. :) Maybe after the kid goes to bed.
