What’s Old Is New

My family recently cleaned out my Grandparent’s farm house; an extremely melancholy chore. But among the sadness there were bright spots. Spots of wonder, amazement and laughter. One thing we came upon, high on a closet shelf in their original box, was a pair of my Grandma’s high heels. The original receipt was in the box, dated 1947. They were $15. My Grandparents ran a farm, they didn’t have a lot to spare. So I know this pair of shoes was probably a huge deal to purchase, hence the receipt kept in the box all these years.

And just look at the style! What’s old is new! Gorgeous. If she only knew this same style still graces the shelves in stores all over today 🙂
