  1. Those are so cute...and I wonder about the person who filled those little shoes. Do you know the history of that particular pair of shoes? Oh, the button hook is itneresting. I'm guessing it was to help get the buttons through the button holes? Adorable shoes!!! Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  2. They are so cute Heather! I can't imagine trying to pull those buttons through the holes with the button hook on a squirming baby! I don't have the history of these but I just received another similar pair donated with the photo of the baby wearing them. The man lived to be 100!! I will have to photogrpah those too.
    Thanks for coming over here to visit with me. :)
    Hugs,
