Vintage 1934 Shoes



Vintage, to me, means anything resembling something old(er) than the current time period. I was really excited to join this challenge, however, when I saw this challenge, I though I would be better off waiting until next week, since I couldn't find/think of anything vintage. However, as luck would have it, my son was playing basketball this afternoon and left his shoes next to his ball when he was done. It suddenly reminded me of the "vintage" Converse shoes specifically designed to play basketball in the mid 1930's.

On a side note, I am NEW here, and Rachel (shout out!) told me to tell you a little about myself. I live in Arizona and am a mom to 3 great kids. I have been married for 10 years, and just recently started "learning" how to take better pictures. I'm still learning, but having a blast in the meantime! I am SUPER excited to be a part of this group!
This is me!
