Earlier this week I shared with you my recent multi-estate sale adventure...
I'm still cleaning, examining, photographing my finds - and trying to decide on a case-by-case basis whether it's a "keeper" or a "seller".
None are perfect or pristine.
Age has taken its toll...
..but how could I turn away from such loveliness?
I have never been able to resist vintage shoes in cream or ivory, so imagine my joy when I found these beauties...
...oh, the places they've been!...
...the stories they could tell!...
I would love to restore them. They are made out of the softest calfskin... which has a bit of damage here/there, and the heels are crusted with years of dirt.
Does anyone have suggestions on the best way to go about cleaning them?

And here we have my little bisque angel... in soft faded shades of yellow and pink. A tiny pink rose in each hand. ((sigh))
(as of this posting, not much in the "selling" bin.... quite a lot in the "keeping")
Hope you are having a wonderful week!
