Vintage shoe form and blogging friends!

Ok, so you are asking yourself, what does a vintage shoe form and blogging friends have in common?  Well I will get to that in a moment!
First, I want to tell you about my fabulous day.

A few days ago my blogging friend Carrie from Dittle Dattle, asked me if I would like to join her and Cindy from Dwellings The  heart of your home for breakfast and a trip to the Sleepy poet antique mall.

Of course, I would love to go, and thanks for thinking of me:)!
First thing we did was meet for breakfast, sorry no pics, too busy gabbing and eating.

Then we hit sleepy poet...

Asking yourself why I have this picture...well it was here we starting yelling, "HELP needed in aisle 9"
We needed help to have an employee take our picture.

{Cindy, me and Carrie}
they are as sweet as they look!

We promised the employee we would buy something and not just walk around being obnoxious...well that is hard for me to promise.  We were very well behaved, except a few times stopping in the dead of aisles just to chit chat and not let elders pass us by.

 We all did leave with a thing or two...
remember I had a story to this...

This was the first time Carrie had seen a shoe form.  I told her they were very popular and people use them in their decor all the time.

Then, I thought...why NOT all three us buy one at $10.00, not sure if that is a deal or not, but anyway,
buy it, and after the NEW year, challenge ourselves to come up with something really creative and fun.
So that is what we did, and you will have to stay tuned after the Holiday to see what we come up with.

Thanks Cindy and Carrie for a great day!

Have a great night everyone,
the weather is a bit weird here, very cold, windy and strange sky..

First, I'm just fine. It's been one of those blah days, with lots of family stuff going on, behind the scene. But, I did get out for my walk. Not to worry, I'll be back to normal soon.

Any who, I have one of those shoe forms stashed some where, in some box of antiques. I can't wait to see what you all do. I might have to go on a hunt around here and find mine.

I sure wish I lived near by. I would have gone too. What fun you all had.

Fun, fun, and you three are adorable. I sell those vintage forms for eight to twelve dollars on consignment. So the price is fair.

How fun a day for you 3! Wish I were there. Shoe forms are all over my house. Decorations, paper weights, candle sticks, etc. Celeste @ larearose blog is the best artist ever in her 'doings' with these shoe forms.

Anxious to see where you 3 go with your shoe forms.

Merry Christmas ~

Sounds like a fun time. I love spontaneous challenges like that. When I did the cookie week with Angie she suggested we do containers for the cookies to go in, so I had to put my thinking cap on and get to work on something for the cookies to be packaged in. It ended up being lots of fun.

How fun! That looks like y'all were enjoying yourselves.
Great idea on the shoe form...I can't wait to see what y'all come up with.

Those pictures of the evening sky look eerie... at first I thought if was fire. But we've had skies that look like that before.

take care~

That sky was really weird -in our area of PA-friends said they saw thunder and lightening and snow flurries at the same time.

Love it. I was thinking of starting a linky party where thrifters like us...took, say 25.00 dollars, and the challenge would be to go thrifting and see how creative you could be with your 25 dollars ONLY. NOT going over. Wouldn't it be fun to see what people come up with? I will do it after Christmas! Love your shoe form!

Hi DEbbie,
ho riso molto vedere che voi usate le forme per fare le scarpe come oggetto per abbellire la casa !!
Nella mia fabbrica noi le usiamo tutti i giorni per produrre le scarpe di marca Tod's.
Usarle per divertimento è una cosa che non mi era mai capitata !
Buona giornata :))
