Vintage Shoe Collection & more owls!

My friend posted a pic of some of her shoes on her blog...said they were some of her favorites. I loved this idea and since vintage shoes are a subject of one of my many collections that I consider a favorite, I thought I'd share a couple of pics with ya! The line of black lace-ups are from the 1970s. I think they are all West German made and of course they are men's shoes originally, but I love the style, toe detail and heel!
This group includes a 1970s blue suede pair, a tan leather & suede 1970s Twiggy style and my old favorite 1960s Ladies Florsheim pumps that I got for $2!

In addition to my shoes, my owls seem to have become a favorite of mine too! In addition to Leanna Lin's Wonderland in Los Angeles (that I've blogged about previously; take a look here for a recent write up: Leanna Lin’s Wonderland: Japanese pop culture cute meets retro whimsy - Los Angeles art scene |, I recently got them into a local store! Who's Your Betty on College Ave. in the Rockridge neighborhood of Oakland is now carrying them! This store is super cute and has an amazing selection of jewelry, bags, pouches, hair decorations, kids things, etc. all with a bit of a rock and roll edge. My friend Mireya from El Ponk! is also selling her handpainted wallets there. (,,

This is the last large group of owls I made and are now partially in Leanna Lin's Wonderland and partially with El if you're in LA and want an owl, go check them out!
