Shoes...3M Challenge..


The challenge at 3 Muses this week is Shoes.
This just shows the difference between the 'haves' and 'have nots'.

Wishing you a lovely day,
Hugs

This is just heartbreaking it reminds me of a small card my grandma had framed on the wall over her sewing machine...it said "I cried because I had no shoes, until I saw a man with no feet". Thank you June for reminding me to be grateful for what I have...and to share with others...you are a dear lady.

A sobering pause for thought to be sure. Just today my daughter told me she had paid over $200 or 150 pounds sterling for a pair of running shoes for her 12 year old daughter. The bottle flip flops are touching. Beautiful and thoughtful artwork, June.

Creative and touching collage, June.
It makes us think about differences between people in different living possibilities. Great artwork.

I zoomed in and saw the flip-flops were flattened plastic bottles! June you have given everyone 'food for thought' as they say. A very poignant reminder of how the other half lives - well done!
You have a lovely day, too, hope you have got over your fall. How's little Algie?

A very thoughtful take on the shoe-theme. And a very interesting background.

This is a poignant reminder that there are many less fortunates, and we who have much need to remember them. Well done, June!

Wow. That gives recycling a whole new meaning. Although sad, it shows how ingenious people can be.

My goodness, June what a telling and poignant statement on the emormous gap between the "haves" and "have-nots."

My old Mum used to say : Poverty is the Mother of Invention. He will probably never own the 'runners' but perhaps he still has something the runner wearer will never have.
