This week for Vintage Thingies Thursday over at Colorado Lady, I'm sharing my mini vintage treasures. They belonged to my grandmother and great-grandfather. Other than that I do not know much about them. They have no markings of any kind, other than the Ribe painted on the little wooden shoe. I've always been a sucker for little things! I remember seeing these as a child and loving them for their tininess. It is special to me that I ended up with them. They are kept on shelves in our bedroom, safe from little hands. Enjoy!
The shoe appears to be hand painted. I think it might be a pin cushion of some sort since the gray material is soft and squishy like a pin cushion.
Just for fun I included a picture of Ribe I found online. If you're interested see HERE for more pictures of Ribe and to learn a little about it's history. This little town has a big history. It is now on my "places to go before I die" list. :-)
