Last Thursday, my mom and I went to an amazing flea market called Junk Bonanza. It’s the second time we’ve gone, and we loved every minute there. The amazing stuff, the talented ways the vendors set up and display their rusty, dusty, beautiful finds, the cheerful vibe of the whole place…it’s a fabulous event!
While there, I purchased a few things for my junk sculpture ideas including some old camera parts, an old gauge, and lenses from an eye doctor’s kit. But my favorite find was a pair of women’s shoes which I believe date to the late 1800s or early 1900s. They are leather, very supple yet, and just so tiny! I have big feet, so these dainty little things are just adorable!
One other piece of happy news. I believe I have finally settled on a new camera. I chose the Canon T3i Rebel, and have the 18-55 mm lens as well as the 55-250 mm lens. I’m having such fun playing with this camera, and the photos below were taken with this camera. I’m still just beginning to learn about all the custom settings, but so far, I am happy with it. 🙂
Part of why I love these shoes so much is because somehow, it helps to have props to study while I am working on creative writing. Zeke’s Fate may be complete, but Russ’ book (still untitled) is well in the works. In Russ’ book, there’s a character by the name of Josephine, who will be a love interest for Russ. When I saw these little shoes, I immediately thought they looked like they would be Josie’s shoes. And they go great with my Bowler Hat, which I always visualized as Russ’ hat. The two go hand in hand. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed seeing these cute little shoes. Have a great day!
