Thanks to KD at Southern Whimsey for hosting Themed Thursday where the theme for this week is shoes. I don't own a single pair of shoes that I would consider cute or stylish. At my age, it is all about comfort. But, I consider these shoes to be adorable as they are only 1 inch long in size!!

These two pair of shoes belong to my Effanbee twin toddler dolls that I received as a child one Christmas from Santa Claus. I loved these two so much, and played and played with them!!!

Therefore, it is amazing to me that all of their original clothes and shoes have survived these 60++ years. The dolls are made of composition and have the softest, curliest lambswool hair.

Thanks for stopping by to view my favorite shoes. Please go check out Southern Whimsey for all of the other shoe-loving participants!

Please forgive me for being a bad blog visitor the past several days. I have been 'under the weather' since last week, and have missed checking all of your recent posts. Hopefully, by next week, I'll be back to my usual schedule. I've missed all of you!!!

EDIT: I just found out that Themed Thursday has been canceled for this week; but hopefully you will enjoy my take on 'shoes' anyway.

Hi Sally! I've missed you and I'm so sorry to hear you've been ill. Glad you're up to hopping through Blogland again. Oh, your little dolls are so precious! I can't believe you played with them - you've taken very good care of them. Oh, I wish I had some of my dolls. I do have some Barbie dolls - but they've had it! lol
Be a sweetie,
