At Christmas my sister purchased these shoes for all three of my kids...and they love them...but Maggie's...there's just something about a pair of shoes a girl can make her own. Maggie's particular shoe was a blank canvas...meant to be created...made for her "inner artist"...you know, the one that leaves paint, markers, and papers remnants all over my schoolroom...all over my house? The one that asked for nothing more than her very own canvases and paints for Christmas. I love this girl...and I love the world that I get to see through her eyes...her imagination...and her hands.
She decided she would paint her Toms all different colors...one for each color she found in her closet...that way, no matter what she wore...they would match! Pretty darn clever I think. Although I'm pretty sure she added a few.
If you have not heard of Toms...I encourage you to visit their site. For every pair of shoes they sell...a new pair is given to a child without. Can you imagine if every company we purchased from would commit to this? I imagine less children would be without in our world.
