Lost shoe



At the rainy day sale this past weekend...I came across this sweet little brown baby shoe...



Just one...
It was in the booth of a dealer with a lot of old automobile junk...
It looked so sad and lonely....so lost.
I asked the dealer how much he wanted for it and he replied...
"two dollars".



Two dollars for one shoe? No way. I left the booth.



But .....my heartstrings tugged....it was lost...it was lonely...
...it was sad...
The mother in me could no longer leave a lost and lonely baby shoe than a lost child...
That automotive junk dealer knew my weakness.

My heart strings would have tugged at me too, but $2? Maybe his heart strings were tugging too and he didn't want to let it go?

It is a really cute shoe, though, worthy of a home. I just love your blog.

Ooh my ... how cute is that little shoe!
Maybe it's me ... but just 2 dollars?
I would have paid double but that's because over here they would simply ask at least 10 ... for a single shoe that is ;-)

Dutch greetings,

Hello Laura

I wouldn't have been able to leave behind either. It has now found a good home!
Who did it belong to? That is what I always wonder.
Have a lovely weekend.

Oh, so lovely. We dug up a little clog in the garden of our tiny Newcastle-upon-Tyne flat when we lived there. It was incredible to think of the little child who had worn and lost it.
