Treasure Chest Thursday: Mom’s Bronze Shoe

Do people still bronze baby shoes?  I don’t ever see that anymore.  I know that I didn’t do it for any of my kids.

I kind of wish that I did though, because I absolutely love this little shoe.  Isn’t it beautiful?

It was my mom’s and I think it’s the perfect little family heirloom.

Do you have a bronze baby shoe?

    I have my dad’s bronze shoe!! I also have a little pink porcelain shoe that was given to my mom when she was born. I just love that stuff. So happy for you that you have something so special. =)ReplyCancel

    LOL… I saved my oldest daughter’s baby shoes with every intention of having them bronzed. Here we are almost 29 years later, and they’re still perched up on the shelf (on display) in my family room – white and scuffed as ever. Perhaps I’ll get around to it before her 30th birthday, and present them to her, then! (Thanks for the reminder!) :)

    How adorable! I will have to ask my mom if her parents bronzed any shoes. I know none of mine were. There are lots of things I would have liked to have done for my kiddos. This would certainly be one to add! Honestly though, I don’t think my kids wore shoes until they could walk. Unless you count slippers!ReplyCancel

    That’s a Great heirloom. I don’t think I know anyone that has a bronzed baby shoe. I kept a baby shoe from both my boys but they are not bronzed… just the original scuffed up little white shoe. I love em. :-) ReplyCancel
