OH MY GOSH ~ I had the same red shoes when I was a little one. What a wonderful memory you have brought back. They were my favourites ;-)

Christine said...

How darling! I remember taking my daughter to get fitted for shoes when she was little. Of course, she hasn't worn buckle shoes in forever...sophomore in college.

What is it about little shoes?

Seems all little girls want a pair of red shoes at least once during childhood. My girl did, and as for me, I had to have red pappagallo's in high school <3

Those darling shoes have carried some sweet little feet along their way. Can't help but imagine what the child might have looked like that wore them. Who knows, maybe they were worn by more than one. I would say probably. The little red ones are my fav too! So cute!!

Jacqueline said...

Dear Laura,
I LOVE anything small and these little shoes are all so lovely. I love to imagine who wore them. Like everyone has said before me, I had a pair just like the red buckle shoes. I don't know if you have Clarkes shoes over there but, that's where my mum and dad bought our shoes and we bought our childrens shoes.
.....but, I'm as interested in the gorgeous suitcases. I'm very into suitcases at the moment and bought an old, childrens one last week.I love the colour of yours. XXXX

Corine said...

How adorable! I can almost envision the precious children who donned those sweet little shoes and, in my mind, hear their innocent laughter, as they ran gleefully around the playyard. I, too, am drawn to children's vintage items, Laura. ;)

Have a beautiful week!

Oh, Laura, I adore all your shoes...I'm sort of a shoe nut, especially wee ones! The way you display them, too, is so charming.

Floss said...

Oh, I had some red buckle shoes like that and have been semi-consciously trying to return to them ever since, I think! No doubt Freud would have something to day...

Floss said...

grr, say...

Kathy Welsh said...

rockpaperscissors said...

Hello Laura!
Adorable this publication... They are all a few charming zapatitos.

The shoes that we have used to go to the school always were the most comfortable.

Precious!

I was in an antique market on Wednesday and saw a little pair of roller skates. Remember the one where you strapped the skates on to the bottom of your shoes? Made me think of this post. Ahhh...the good old days.

LaPouyette said...

Featured it today on my blog. Whenever you have time, please have a look at:

Hope that you like it.

And I do hope that you will be not effected by 'Irene', what a terrible thing for everybody living in New York and near the East coast. Keep safe.

Greetings from Périgord,
