Three Muses Challenge..Shoes..

I had a thing for shoes when I was younger and had loads,
I always included a red pair. AlasI can no longer wear my high heels
so they all had to go.
I've put a different take on the theme this week.

Really makes you think about what is really important in ones life!! Shoes? Who really needs them when you can inprovise so easily.
This is a fabulous piece, June!

June, you certainly have found an image which made me think. We really don't have equal opportunities in this world. Although I feel sorry for the poor woman, at the same time I can only admire her creativity.

Wow, what an image and what a pair of shoes...
Finally I appreciate my old used boots now when it's getting cold... June, wonderful job you have done!

Oh my, yes, this does make me thankful for all I have--especially these comfortable "Old Friend" slippers I am wearing right now. Poignant, June.

Oh wow, June, it took me a moment to realize those shoes started life as bottles, now that is recycling at its best. Thank you for reminding me of how lucky I am.

FANTASTIC, love your take on this theme.

Amen to this Junie...it is good to stop and consider those of us who have no shoes...Thank you for a beautiful and touching reminder of my blessings. You're the best!!!
You know this reminds me of a little quote my Grandma had on her wall "I cried because I had no shoes until I met a man with no feet." Gratitude is a very good thing I'm thinking.

Oh so beautiful, June!

Your work is always so delightfully original, June. I don't know how you continue to come up with idea after idea and execute them with such perfection. BRAVO

William said...

I kept looking at them, and couldn't figure out what they were. I'm so glad Taluula figured it out. That picture makes such a big statement. Wonderful work!

A very thought provoking piece, June. Thank you!

This is an inspired collage, June. It took me a moment to see what the shoes were made of. So sad, and you're right, it does put things in perspective for those of us who are more fortunate.

Incipient Wings said...

great image June, makes you stop and think.

Ozstuff said...

June, I think you have made us all stop and think with your beautiful shoe picture. We all have so much stuff compared with the poor people of the world. This lady has made her shoes from plastic bottles and rags but they still have a certain elegance.

Wonderful and thoughtful artwork.

June, one thing I get from blogging is the education. I have never seen "shoes" like those in the picture and would never have had the imagination to construct shoes like that. I appreciate your ability to take something so humble and to make such a gorgeous picture from it. This looks like a poster for aid to a third world country or something.
