For Karen

Karen was wondering what I did with these shoe stretchers that I bought in September.

The project I mentioned working on (and hoping wouldn't be too weird!)  was a photo holder.

This is the third one I have made.  The first two sold pretty quickly!

I used Mod Podge to glue a vintage shoe ad to a piece of aged wood (from behind my shed) and rusted the shoe tree with vinegar and salt.  I mounted the shoe tree to the wood and curled the spiral photo holders from rebar wire. 

I don't know WHY I made this, but the idea wouldn't leave me alone until I did.  I guess it's not too weird for other people, thank goodness!
