Plans, Schemes and Lightbulbs

Packing to move. Bah humbug!!

Determined not to become overwhelmed I had a plan....& "sub plans"

I have more or less followed to them too. I can't believe how calm & organized I have been.
I started with the miniature shoe collection - all 250+ of them. Each has it's own wee shoe box, but as the last move taught me the easy part is packing them down. The hard part is unpacking them & remembering where in the display they looked the best, when I get to the other end.

I was thinking about this as I packed the first few away, having started with my favourites; the western/cowboy boots.

Then I had a brain wave.
Well actually it was a rather obvious solution that I had simply never thought of before.
Photograph them, in situ.

The first few we hurriedly put back into the display cabinet, & I photographed each shelf.
Ahhh the joys of modern technology!

A day later & I had this ....& 6 others like it!

Miniature shoes? You mean shoes for kids? For dolls? I've never heard of these, but my husband is convinced that women have a "thing" for anything in miniature, and I'm thinking he's on to something. i have to admit that I've seen some pretty cool shoes for babies when out shopping, and it's very tempting to buy them even if I don't know what I'd do with them.

Your collection is amazing! The detail is quite incredible.
