The lucky winner will receive their choice of shoes from Puss Ann in one adult and one child size.
The shoes featured, bear whimsical illustrations representing each of the seasons.
Each motif matches in design, each having a radial pattern in the background (sun beams, leaves, star points and flower petals) and a main image in the foreground (a rose, acorn, fox and lady bug). Made with black ink with a solid coordinating color behind the pictures in woodblock style. When worn together, both pairs of shoes made a 'set' .
Hand designed by the artist behind Puss Ann, each shoe bears a unique graphic on the tip. Her storefront has a prolific gallery of designs with new shoe designs updated frequently.
So, if you have an image idea please send them an email or leave a comment in the guestbook (even if it's just to say hi).
Each shoe is unique with various vintage fabrics to compliment and line the sole.
If you're looking to customize here's the scoop. Her sweet and simple shoes come in lots of colors, sizes and designs.
First you can start with a color. With colors in Ruby red, Garbo green, Betty black, Posey pink and Bardot yellow you won't have a problem finding a hue to match any modest frock!
Reminiscent of Christopher Robin, Buster Browns and all things soft and vintage. I loved the unadorned look of these shoes paired with an a-line skirt.
On her site you'll find everything you need to customize your own pair. It's easy and fun!

About the photos.....This was a very interesting location. There were so many photo opportunities to be had. I would like to go back sometime in the summer and get some good photos by the scenic pond or lower level where hay bales line the walls.
Molly had a ball running around all the empty space. Our house is small and fairly cluttered with furniture. I think she likes to really stretch out her legs whenever afforded the opportunity.
That or she wanted to get as far away from us as fast as she could:P
While taking the photos we brought along a 'Juno' LP and twirled, marched and danced to....Kimya Dawson & Antsy Pants. I think it's the perfect soundtrack for adults and kids. You know, when your tired of replaying 'The Wheels on the Bus'.
I burned it to a CD and the moment I pressed play Molly began baby dancing, which if you've ever seen, is more adorable than 1000 kittens.
