baby shoes

On Saturday we are throwing a baby shower for my brothers wife. They are expecting twins in April...a boy and a girl...what more can you want! This is so special because, well, TWINS, but also because I am really close with my brother. These are his first babies and he is going to be a great dad! I was up in my attic (yes..again!) before and came across a box that my mother had saved our old baby shoes in. I had to share because they just don't make shoes like this any more!
I was so glad to come across these booties. My grandmother made them. Granny used to make these booties all the time....all of the grand kids had them. My brother recently asked if there were anymore left and I told him I didn't know. They were still stuffed with tissue and wrapped up in a little plastic bag so they didn't yellow at all...perfect condition!
I can't wait to give the to him!

The pink mary janes are so special. I had a rowdy boy, and his baby shoes are all scuffed up and not so pretty, but still dear memories.

These finds are just precious and what a treasure! What an exciting time for you and your wonderful family. To be an aunt is so wonderful, but twice!

Not sure if you have ever heard of chet and dot but I always buy a pair of handmade booties from that shop.

I found you through flickr and your lovely little boxes you made for a swap. Just beautiful!

There's nothing like welcoming a new baby into the world. It's always fun to but the clothes and shoes. I bet your brother will be excited about the booties....
