Studio Friday - aged - antique



These shoes, and the note that accompanies them, sit on a shelf in my studio, as a connection to my paternal grandmother, "Dambi," a painter who was my strongest artistic influence as a child. They belonged to her only brother, who died as a baby. The note that accompanies them was left by my great Aunt Viola, Dambi's sister, so that we'd know their precious history. I don't recall the origins of the rosary beads that are draped over them.

Thanks, Tine Sparkles, for this fun blog-event!

and happy birthday sisser!
