Vintage Feed Sack Shoe Bag... Yard Sale Find

Sorry about the date on the picture. I can't figure out to remove it.

When my parents were bringing me home from my stay with them,we stopped at a yard sale just outside of their little town. It happened to be a lady from their church. Her mother who was six months shy of her 102 birthday had passed away,and they were selling some of her things. I found this old handmade shoes bag there. She made it from an old feed sack,years ago! I brought it home and put it through a wash. It came out much cleaner looking than I thought it would. I decided to hang it on a wall in my bedroom and fill it with some things I had that needed a place to go.  I am not sure just how satisfied I am with it now,but I will leave it a while and see.
These little dolls came in a recent box from a dear friend of mine,as well as the little vintage plastic Doggie wall plaque. Thank you sister friend...I love what you put in that box :)


 These two girls I found recently at goodwill.....99 cents each. I cleaned them up,washed and fixed their hair....now they are looking a bit better.


And this little lamb......sweet...don't ya think?

I like that feed sack look! A nice homey find! We are alike in that I have sometimes let things sit for a while to decide if it what I want or does it need some tweeking or re-done completely! lol I love the look of that soft little lamb!
