Square Trees #17 – wooden shoes

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge July: Square Tree

I was reminded of shoe lasts that my bestie owns by Becky and her post about Mr B’s Tree

Your tree song for today

These old wooden shoe shapes were used by shoemakers to mould and shape shoes. There are two sizes. The smaller ones could be childs shoes or perhaps a small woman. The other larger one has a name on the side of the person the shoes were being made for so the shoemaker didn’t have to measure each time.

I also found some small wooden shoes that my girls grandmother bought back for them on her overseas trips years ago plus a pair of little clogs from a tourist place, The Clog Barn, in Coffs Harbour.

Cee’s Mid-Week Madness Challenge: April Pick a Topic from my Photo

“The photo is of train going through Canby. What I like about this photo is the white cyclist’s helmet sitting on top of green bush.. The train is in motion. There is some graffiti on the train car and I live the message “We will deliver””

Here is what I found

A bit stuffed

Benny the Cat being disturbed while sleeping on his “dog.” He used to drag this dog from room to room.

Wasn’t that song just oh dear…..I think it must have been a talent quest or at least they gave it their best shot

Remember when…..
