Bliss Baby Shoe Light

Here is another project from my treasure trove of lovely junk I posted the other day. I chose one of the baby shoes and used it to make a candle light. The music decoupaged on the toe is vintage ephemera. All the buttons are antique and made from shell. I love forget-me-nots (pink of course!) and I used them to encircle the base of the light. The old key hanging from the ribbon shoe lace has a rusty heart affixed to it. This was so much fun to make.

Martha you still continue to amaze and inspire me. I hadn't seen you on the CLP forum and I have been MIA myself so I caught up with you on HGTV and came to your blog. Such a lovely place you have created. How in the world did you get the paisley look on the pink?
