My mother loved shoes. especially high heels. as she got older and was less able to wear that style of shoe, i started her on a shoe collection. Other relatives and friends went along.
So now i have inherited a huge collections of shoes, mostly ceramic, but wire and wooden ones too. some made of resin, several brass high buttoned shoes, a crocheted shoe. baby shoes and heels in all sizes. some broken ones i repaired and covered with polymer clay.
