Theme Thursday - 2" by 4"



She lived for shoes

This weeks theme for Theme Thursday's Challenge is the 2" by 4". We could pick any format, using digital, collage, etc... I decided to to a digital collage. One of the things my mother an I love to do is shop for clothes and shoes together. We are our best critics and really can get some major stuff done. Then of course lunch or a snack.

Yesterday shopping with an old friend I was reminded of this. When I was growing up we always shopped a lot around my mother's birthday for spring clothes. She would look for something nice to wear for dinner with my father. I got my new dresses for the season. My favorite was looking for the right shoes to go with my dresses. I sort of grew into my feet and loved the ladies shoe section when I was young.

My digital collage is of a lady who loves her shoes. In using the ephemera images I realized I have see variations of these shoes in the stores lately. I guess everything comes back in style if you wait long enough. Hmmm... might be time to look through all the shoes I have been carting around for years...something is probably in style.
