What do you do with only one shoe?
I first learned of wooden shoes when I was about 7 or so.
I was in the 2nd grade and we were studying far off places.
I was fascinated by Holland with their windmills, tulips and wooden clogs.
So, when I saw this lonely old wooden shoe sitting on the shelf at the antique shop without a mate it made me sad. I had to rescue it and give it a purpose.
This particular shoe is 13 inches long and had been made for wearing.
It's new home is in my kitchen and it's new purpose is a planter.
I think it looks happy now.
