Vintage Shoe Stretcher

I was cleaning out my garage today and came across this pair of unique vintage shoe stretchers I purchased at a thrift store for $1.75.
 From shoe stretcher to photo holder.
It couldn't get any easier!

 Enjoy your weekend.

  15. Great idea for a unique find. And, yes, you do need to write a book on all your ideas for repurposing.

  19. Wow how creative, my motto is if you don't use it get rid of it, but if I had your creative mind I could make no end of things and sell them for charity!! Sadly I am not at all creative, well we are all different, I might find out what I am good at some day!!!. Have a great weekend, Jackie in Surrey, UK.x

  36. Hi Jane,

    I was channeling you this weekend, when I saw two adorable, very old small clamps, and thought of your clamp picture holder! Needless to say, I snapped them up! I want to add that although I have not been subscribing long, you are one of my very favorite bloggers and, believe me, I subscribe to a lot of them (the perfect procrasination tool). I am amazed at how you have come back to us so soon, after all you have gone through. I, for one, am so grateful, as your posts lift my spirits every time! Thank you for your strength, creativity, and selflessness to share yourself and your ideas even as you heal.
