My Left Foot...

I created MY SHOE TREE yard art - old shoes hanging on my ficus tree.  The neighbors stop and stare - many take photos.  One lady asked me if these shoes were for sale - ha ha!

I not only love it -- I also wonder how you can cope in those heels. I would be a dead woman before I got 10 feet down the path! Love those funky checked tennies with the red laces. Joy!

How fun! A brilliant idea. :)
Happy Tuesday.

Totally Awesome. I would love to be your neighbor. It would be so much fun looking at this every day.

How creative -- I like those sneakers! :)

Janine said...

That's some collection of shoes! What a great idea to use my heels that I'll never wear again!

abrianna said...

Fun photos. I could never wear those heels though!

Karen Frost said...

Such fun! Love those sparkly heels! Can't wear them anymore, but this is a great idea to enjoy them still! xoxo

What an incredibly creative idea. And if I saw a tree like that I would totally have to stop and take a photo too!

Such a fun idea - and wow, the shoe in the first photo! That one is worth stopping for a photo all by itself!

Fantastic idea. Wonderful crative mind at work. I am not so sure that it would work with my old men's shoes. Really great idea you have.

What a wonderful, happy artpiece. I wonder, do you scour the stores for cool shoes, or do they sometimes magically walk to your doorstep?

What a fantastic idea! I wish I had a tree with lower hanging branches. You really are brilliant. Then again, I find most insane people to be quite keen.

Dear Texture Tuesday friends,
I'm sure you know that Kim's husband is currently undergoing chemotherapy for Leukemia in Winnepeg. I would like for us TT followers to do something special for Kim and John this week. If you are able, could you create a Texture Tuesday image with the theme of HEALING for Kim and John, and post it on her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/kimklassencafe this Tuesday? I would love to see a big show of support and love for them.
Thank you,
Joyelle Brandt, Texture Tuesday fan
