A few weeks ago I showed you this gorgeous doily that my Great Grandmother made. In the post I said how I remembered her crocheting little shoes and bells. Well my Dad just happened to read that post and sent me a lovely email. He said he still had one of Granny Angus little shoes and he wanted me to have it!!!!
Last week when I visited my Dad he gave me this! It's one of her tiny little crochet shoes and I can't believe it still looks as good as the day she made it. Not being a crocheter - I am really amazed at how you can crochet and make such a delicate, intricate shape like this!!!!
Little tiny flowers on the toe and she has stitched a silver thread all around the edge. It's just beautiful and I love it so much.. I am especially happy that Dad gave it to me... But that's not all......
Dad also gave me this little chair. My Great Grandmother also made this.. I don't remember it at all, so it was a lovely surprise to see it. It's been made out of a can and was probably made when the aluminium can was first made and started being used here (which we've googled and found to be late 1960's, early 1970's).
There is so much work in it and it's so ornate. She has made tiny little cuts nearly all the way down the can and then rolled and twisted each section to make the back, the legs, the arms and tiny little details along the front.
I think it's so lovely and I will treasure it and the little tiny crochet shoe.

What an amazing, talented lady my Great Grandmother was!
I am linking up with Melody again today for Tuesday Treasures.
I am off to see who else is sharing their treasures today.
Have a great day!
