Vintage Black Friday 3



What a busy week! I wanted to play VBF again this week so here are a few old black things from my stash of stuff and photographs! Love those Flinch cards....my sister Lynn and I used to play that at our Nana's house when we were kids. The little shoe is one of a pair of teeny, tiny, sparkly Cinderella like shoes....found when out antiquing with Paula a few years ago...



Speaking of shoes.....I saw these in a store window in Florence, Italy back in September while we were there on our wonderful trip....Rob and sister Lynn were dragging me through the cobblestone streets searching for DAVID....I was snapping pictures all the way!
Amazing shoes, yes?

We did eventually find DAVID but...sadly the exhibit was closed on Mondays!
(Next time!...always optimistic that there will be another trip in the future!)

To see other participants in Vintage Black Friday visit Jill at Gypsy Brocante!

Fun weekend ahead....craft show, flea market and tomorrow is Rob's birthday!

Those sure are some vixeny shoes (not a word, I know!). Not sure I could walk in 'em, but they'd come in handy if I got mugged...they look SHARP!
Love the Flinch cards, too!

Shoes really are a study in engineering and art. How do they hold us up on such a small heel and how does it make a leg look so good?...well some of us:)Those Italian shoes must have been a pretty penny! How many did you buy?? ha-ha!

I had just a few hours in Florence, Italy last Fall. We went to the David Exhibit and so I only had a few moments to see the shops! Not nearly enough! David was pretty fabulous though.

Somehow I thought that vintage black Friday was only in October like Halloween month. I think I'll play once (or twice) too. I love the sweet miniature shoe and the big ones too, thought I couldn't walk on them anymore especially not in Florence! Have a great weekend!

Hi laura,
ADORE the shoes but would hate to walk in them!! ;-) I am a brocante queen myself. Autumn gives me the chance to work on what I've picked up before the next season starts! Love your blog. I'm along for the ride. By the way - may I borrow your quote 'Symphony' quote one day? I will be sure to like back to you.

Hi Laura, and thanks for your kind comments. I am personally keen on having a cheerful, pretty blog, especially as I blog for my mum who is ill. But I feel uncomfortable when people think that my blog represents some kind of perfect lifestyle I'm leading!

You strike a really good balance here. Somehow your pictures are exquisite yet you don't make readers feel inadequate. I don't know how you do it but please carry on!

I'm not really a heal type of girl but something about those shoes make my legs weak (in the good way). I guess a part of us still want to play dress up.

Floss said...

PS I just quoted your comment and linked to you on my post today - thanks for your great words!
