Memories

This is the Grand Chap's shoe and a picture of him wearing it. (he is on the left, isn't he a cutie?) We have had both for some time just shoved in a space. The picture was cracked and bent in several places and I recently did some processing to make the flaws less noticeable and had it reprinted. I then asked him to make me a shadow box and gave him the dimensions without telling him why I wanted it. It is perfect don't you think? Now they are no longer just shoved in a space but on display.
What a nice way to honor/remember him. Nice job on the photo restore also.

What a lovely way to display the little shoe! And how nice to have his woodworking talents. He didn’t ask what it was for?

How wonderful to display these lovely memories. The little shoe has so much character and a few tales to tell I expect.

Such a special way to display a family memento! How nice to have a wood-crafter handy to say "This is what I want" and then he makes it!

@ludwigsdiana That is really nice of you Diana. I feel anyone could do it with as much practice as he has put into it
@mcsiegle I am really happy with how it turned out. I think I just told him I wanted to display something and he has very little curiosity so he just did what I asked!

@randystreat I think his parents definitely got your moneys worth out of the shoe. I’m glad you like the way I decided to show them off. Thank you Kathy
