Happy Saturday Everyone!
Earlier today I was visiting one of my favorite blogs.
Dawn of, The Feathered Nest had written a post about a couple of wonderful pin keeps and this Amazing tiny shoe she had just created out of dried magnolia petals.
Yes, you heard me right, dried magnolia petals.
Well, it was so amazing she inspired me to create a pin keep for myself.
And since I don't have any dried magnolia petals sitting around. (Oh heck, who am I kidding…. even if I did I'm not as talented as her.)
But I did have an old single baby shoe.
I actually bought two singles awhile back and had them put up till I was in the mood to do something with them.
Well, thanks to Dawn, I was in the mood. :)
So here is the little pin keep I whipped up this morning.
No glue was used, I hand sewn the topper to the top edge of the shoe. Also the shoe portion is stuffed.
I also used true early blue calico fabric for the topper.
Isn’t it cute!
I have this in my living room, on a shelf above some other primitive pin keeps.
They are in the basket below the cubby.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
PS. Kelsey made it to CA this morning.
I’ll give you more of an update when I actually get to talk to her.
She just texted me letting me know.
