sweet. adorable. weird. strange.

I think this is the longest I've gone without posting since I started my blog. Yowzers. The PhotoHunt theme this week is shoes, so I thought I'd branch out from exclusively taking photos of Csilla's darling hands and move into showing you her precious feet too. Plus, I couldn't resist taking a couple of snaps of Csilla's new shoes. They're Joe Brand from Superstore and only cost $10. Awesome deal and cute too!


I also spotted these while we were out the other day. Seeing shoes over a power line is always so strange to me. I have no idea what the fascination with hanging shoes like this is. But I guess lots of other people (kids probably) think it's funny because I see hanging shoes all over the place. Weird if you ask me.

totally sweet shoes... little shoes are the best, mostly because of who fills them ;)

Like the shoe on the electric line.

Those are so cute. I kind of want them in grown-up sizes!

(But if you see my photo hunt photo today, I clearly don't need any more!)

I love the shoes. I think that Mattie is going to go crazy. We have a shoe tree on the way to my hubbys parents home. We have our shoes hanging from them. I will post it for you sometime. Its really cool. I like the hanging shoes. It is just a reminder of how things just stick out when its not in the normal. We see shoes all the time, but have them hanging on a wire, they become art and a fascination to us.. Isn't that interesting. It is to me.

Those are adorable. I love looking back through pictures at my little girl's tiny, cute little shoes.

Her feet are as big as mine now, but I still think they're cute.

Sweet, little, well-decorated feet! Love them.

Those are very cute little shoes from Superstore. Joe has some nice stuff. I am not sure why people do that with shoes and boots. It is a little like the baseball caps on the fence posts.

I've heard that shoes on the electric line are gang related.. they signify someone has died near where the shoes are. Don't know how true this is, but that's what I was told.

Love this post!

Emma has some Joe brand shoes as well, so darling and girly!

I think teenagers throw shoes up onto powerlines with the mistaken thought that they'll catch fire or fizzle or something. =)

Just yesterday The Man asked me why people throw their shoes over the lines. I still don't know.

Csilla's shoes - perfect!! I'm with lingovise on that.

in Ireland the shoes over the line mean a drug dealer is present in that street.

JC said...

Totally sweet!

I suppose there can be any number of reasons for utility line shoes... I know the ones in my post were in good neighborhoods, so it was most likely just some kids goofing.

I stopped at your other blog first... wow, sure can't blame you for being bike shy.

Ooo, that anonymous person's comment has made me feel a bit creepy. Let's hope it wasn't that - I reckon it was some students having a laugh.

I love her little shoes!!

Her shoes are so cute!

There were a pair of work boots for quite some time thrown over a wire right in the middle of this VERY busy highway. I often wondered how they got there without the person putting them there getting ran over.

A relative of mine lived in a not-so-great area of our city. They'd bought and renovated like a few others, trying to reviatalize a formerly lovely area. They were told by neighbours, that if they saw shoes hanging from power lines, to leave them alone; they were supposedly gang related and tampering with them would result in unwanted attention from the wrong people.

(They eventually moved anyway... those responsible for the negative activity in the area just didn't seem to care how many people wanted to help turn it around.)
