Alterations to Vintage Cards

I cut out a bunch of shoes from a 1970's Sears catalog not knowing what I'd do with them.


Of course -  giant shoes in landscapes. What else?

I didn't keep a copy of what I wrote on the reverse for most of these before I sent them off. You can think up your own stories, if you'd like.

A giant shoe on the lawn of the United Daughters of the Confederacy building. Can you imagine how perturbed the ladies were to find this on their lawn?






 I have the story for this one - Who decided on a shoe ornament for the garden was never discovered. The gardeners disliked it immensely. It filled with water when it rained and was hard to drain.

I amuse myself, make myself laugh.

Write a few stories yourself and let me know if you do.
