I snagged a great deal on some shoes the other day: These are Re-Mixed shoes in the Deco style. Olive and Brown colors. It's a 1920's inspired vintage recreation.

(I wouldn't tell her otherwise, because she seems a little testy right now ;-)) (Ignore the pile of laundry in the background! ::blush::)It's taking me a little getting used to, but I think I'm learning quickly. Right now I have her set on… Continue reading Here she is!
