The girl with the Vintage Blue Shoes

Ever found something amazing at an antique store and wondered about the story behind it? Well this happened to me the other day. I was shopping at my favorite place when I spotted these pretty vintage blue shoes. They were $22.00 and it just so happened the seller was selling everything in their booth 50% off. That was it for me. I just had to buy them!

When I was driving home looking at my fabulous find I started to wonder. Who wore them? Where did they come from? They are pretty worn down so I know somebody got a lot of use out of them. Did they even dance in them at one time? All of this amazed me and I knew they were just more then a simple pair of shoes. They had a story behind them and for me that was a fascinating thing. Now if only they were not so small. A size 5 or so. The ladies back in the day had such small feet.I remember my dear sweet Grandma and her beautiful shoes. I use to play dress up with them all of the time. I think they are great, and I will treasure these shoes always. I love these little blue gems♥.
