A Different Sort of Piggy Bank

Shortly before Little Man was born, a kind bloggy friend sent a little package of baby goodies in the mail. Included was the sweetest little pair of knitted baby shoes. So sweet, in fact, that I just have to share them with you!

I love the shape, and the colors, and the little cuff, and the cozy wool. And they belong to the Only-Things-That-Will-Stay-on-a-Baby's-Foot club. Oh, how I love that club.

They're a different kind of piggy bank -- a perfect repository to keep tiny little baby toes safe, warm, and stylish.

And Serena, they get compliments *every single time* he wears them!


  1. Oooh how darling! Everything she makes is so lovely! I have nearly finished your baby gift, it should be on it's way soon! <3

  2. BABY FEET!!! Is anything cuter in the whole world????? I think not. What a precious gift!

    Much love,

  3. Awww, those are so adorable. His feet are so tiny! Love it!

  4. *SQUEAL!* I adore those booties! And that club you mentioned IS very elite...I hope your itty gentleman feels quite distinguished. :)

  5. They are great! Any idea what pattern they used? Baby boots can be so impractical!

  6. Those are so sweet!!! I love booties and baby shoes...and especially when the stay on!

    Cutest little feet :-)

  7. Oh, those pictures are SO much better than the ones I took! You can't beat such delicious little feet! I'm so pleased you like them and that they stay on.

  8. These are just adorable, they look nice and warm too:)

  9. I had a pair of similar style that a friend made and they are the best for staying on the feet. Those booties and a little blue cardigan were some of my favorite goods.

    Very cute! Wish I could knit.

  10. Aww! Serena, they are SO cute!

    BTW, Shannon, I have a made up name for your baby in my head. I don't know why, but since we don't know his real name, my breain has decided that his name is Michael.


    Anyway, "Michael's" piggy toes are very cute! :D

  11. Thank you for your sweet comments! I'm very much enjoying those sweet little toes :-)

    Anonymous, here's a link to Serena's page on (you have to join to see it, but it's free):

    Keri, it's so funny that you should come up with the name "Michael" -- I believe my sister was thinking (or still is thinking) of using that as Little Man's "code name" on her blog!



I'd love to hear your thoughts! Thank you so much for stopping by!
