A LIFE ALTERING EXPERIMENT

Here's are pics of my finished shoes.

I'm sorry I didn't take a pic of them before I began working on them, but they were originally a pair of tan Keds with a rusty color stain on the toe. I was lucky enough to refurbish these with paints, ink, stamps and ribbons and I already owned from a pair of shoes I was going to throw away! so they are also environmental friendly and it was a lot of fun.

I went back to my fav thrift store yesterday in search of more clothes to alter. I bought an old gray knit jumper and the big black dress with pink roses. Stay tuned to see what I do with them. Hmmm....I think I have a few ideas.

Good pics, but they are even cuter in person.
