The day has finally arrived…
I have my own shoe collection! Designs that I have dreamed of and drew and redrew ( with oil pastels) are finally here!
My 2015 collection is Vintage Romance and all named after flowers which have a special meaning to me.
“The Trailing Arbutus” … a pale pink flower both my Mother and myself were named after.
I would gather the Arbutus flower vines in the woods of Michigan growing up.
“Carnation”… a favorite flower of mine… love the spicy scent.
“Fairy’s Thimble”… a Alpine wildflower which can be found in Switzerland… where my Husband and I were married.
“Sweet Pea”… flowers I use to pick as a small girl for my Grandmother.
“Forget Me Not” … which just the name reminds me of love and romance. Down in a valley inscribed on a rock… are three little words… “forget me not”.
My first shoe collection is for all of us who have romantic notions with a piece of vintage lace sewn on for good measure!
*My dog (Westie) in the photo is “Willow Tea Time”. She was quite curious about the photo shoot… so we added her to it.
