Shoes in Miniature!

Manolo says, the Manolo loves this

My grandmother collected miniature shoes nearly her entire life. I loved her shoe collection and would plead to ‘play’ with the shoes whenever I could. I loved each shoe so much, I would even spend the occasional Saturday morning dusting the shoe cabinet and each individual shoe. I was the only relative that showed any interest in her shoes and when she died in March, 1993 at the age of 91, she willed all the miniature shoes to me.

And now you must go look at the whole collection.

    That is so incredibly sweet. It must have been so gratifying for the grandmother to know that her hard-won collection would be so cherished and nurtured by a loved one. She is truly honouring her grandmother’s memory in the best possible way.

    The collection is so fantastic! I loved the few posted already on the blog. I agree with La petite – How wonderful that the collection found a home, and that the grandmother knew that it would be cherished.

    These are all so cute! I think the red galoshes are my favorite.
