Art: Lady Bird by Artist Sara Field
What 1950's home didn't have a pair of shoe trees? It was a time when our denim blues and leather shoes were stiff and uncomfortable but we liked that 'just bought' look and shoe trees kept our wing-tips wrinkle free.

This bird-like creature is composed of one shoe tree, an old drop-light cage rescued from the dump, an inverted metal coffee table leg and a few pre-teflon metal kitchen utensils. Her jaw, complete with teeth is a gentleman's suspender clamp and her eyes are a pair of my grandmother's screwback pearl and rhinestone earrings. A large 50's bow style brooch graces her long neck and I couldn't resist giving her Lucille Ball red lipstick.
