Writing Miles on a Witch’s Shoe


This autumn, the Frosted Petunia goddess issued a very special invitation. Take a one of your witchy shoes and make it even witchier, she said. Okay, so she phrased it a little different, but that’s what my ears heard. I, of course, jumped on my broom and rose to the occasion by transforming one of my old boots into a witchy writer’s planter. Here is my masterpiece:

These are the things I used, and the papered boot…
 

I didn’t use everything you see above. My inspiration went wild during the process, and I forgot to add the wand and the ribbons *sigh*. Also, instead of creating a blank planter where I was going to write a story, I glued cute pieces of lined paper, the last page of an old journal, one of my fully buttered entries, skulls, and everything else you can see on the following pictures. I’m excited about adding all kinds of little notes to my new witchy planter, which until a few days ago happened to be an old boot ;-)
 
 
The skull was a present from Oma Linda
The hammer has its own story, I might share it one day. Maybe... 

Visit the rest of the party goers, and delight in the magic of the Autumn Altered Witch Shoe Challenge.

  1. *sigh* I love skulls.

    I only own one a pair of running shoes, a pair of chanclas, and one nice pair of interview shoes. Maybe I will go raid the SalVal to find a suitable crafty shoe lol.

    1. I need to get rid of some shoes. I have shoes that I can't no longer wear. That one in particular, due to the fact that I have no idea of the location of the second lol

      I LOVE skulls, too!

    1. It's an ivy plant that came out of nowhere in another pot. It felt good to make something useful with a pair of old shoes I used to love, and I can write it, too!

    1. I would do the other boot, but I can't find it *sigh* I think it got swallowed up by a closet monster. But I'm all inspired, and I have the feeling that some of my military boots will grow leaves ;-)

  10. Whaadaya mean you MIGHT tell the hammer story later. That's hardly witch cricket in my books! Fess up Li'l Lulu! (One of my fav comic book heroines when I was a kid!!) But I must say, even without the hammer story, the boot is a story unto itself. Pretty impressive!! And beautiful, too!

    1. I've always been fascinated by Piet Mondrian's blocks, lines and colors. Squares never looked so free ;-)

      Yay! on my good ears. This was such a great party, Anna. I might have to find the other boot for next year!

    1. "the 13th Earl of Skullvania" claimed a spot by my desk as soon as he got home. Now he claimed the boot on top of the desk. He is eternally staring at me, and I wink at him every now and then. Ms. Ivy gets jealous ;-)

  21. Magaly what a perfect witchy boot for your witchy soul. I love it's joint purpose of both planter and note keeper. Ivy seems the perfect plant for it with it's meanings of luck, friendship and protection.

  23. My witchy shoes are Nike's. LOL Those would look goofy as hell if I tried this, I'd imagine. But I LOVE the idea! Maybe I should go out and buy some shoes for this. :P

    1. Hm, I bet you can do it with Nike's lol. If not, I have a couple of 4-inch heels. Nope, I have no idea how they made it into my closet ;-)

    2. My God I would trip over my own feet in 4 inch heels. I'm sure people want to revoke my "female" membership now.;)

    3. And I would probably break my neck. We can form a club now lol

  25. What a transformation! you can tell it was a work of inspiration as you went along.

    1. I was in a trance. A very messy trance, too. There was stuff all over the place. But I was (still am) sooo please with the results, that I hope Anna does it again next year.

      And the hammer tale will come one of these days. I'm sure. Maybe... ;-)

  26. This is SO adorable!! Seriously! You did an amazing job and I can totally see this creation changing over time as you continue to add new goodies and charms. That wand with the ribbons you forgot to add could easily just be inserted into the soil next to the plant! ;)
    What a gorgeous inspiration!
