My Little Yellow Shoes ~ A Re~Creation ..

Hello my dear friends,

I had created these little neat altered baby shoes some time ago and liked them very much. I had kept them as baby shoes then but ...

... with Spring finally approaching and all the little feathered critters outside singing in the sunshine and  flying around, I thought it would be the right time to re-creating them into something I love so much, namely little nests and I am so happy I did so because I just love the result in each and every tiny way.

The small shoe I worked on was left as is and I chose not to stiffen or paint it because it would have taken away from the so lovely shade of pale yellow which is so appealing. I tried to make the little nest appear very natural as if a little bird had actually gathered bits and pieces it found here and there, like a piece of twine, a snippet of lace and ribbon, a strain of wool, some dried grasses and of course a few feathers ~ just like it would happen in nature. Two tiny wooden eggs were given a subtle shade of off white, nothing more or less which now live in the their new little home. The final touch I added to this creation were two of my vintage velvet violets for that little hint of color and this creation was then done.

(Yes .. I know a lot of photos again but I almost never can make my mind up which ones to share or not that's why I just share all of them.)

My 'Little Yellow Shoe' nest ...


I hope you have enjoyed my newest making. It was a lot of much fun re-creating it. 
I have the second shoe still here to work with but I am not quite sure what I am going to do with it ... maybe another little nest? No, not maybe ... most probably. 
It would be so nice for me to visit me here at Todolwen again sometime.
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. Just beautiful sweet friend!!! Baby shoes and nests are my very favorites! Wishing you a wonderful, creative week ahead ~ hugs and love, Dawn

  2. So lovely, your little left shoe.
    The white right one, I have from you, is standing on my creative table. So I can look at it every day.

    Hugs Ines♥

  3. Very sweet! You are so creative. The other day I found a hummingbird nest lying on the ground. It has been terribly windy here. Luckily there weren't any eggs in it. Have a good day!
