Hand-Painted TOMS

Ever heard of TOMS? Of course you have...let me re-phrase that question...How many pairs of TOMS do you have? TOMS are definitely the latest trend now and how could you resist the fact that if you purchase a pair of shoes, a child in need will recieve a pair of shoes as well? Such a great cause! Anyway, one of my close friends, Meredith, married last summer and wore a pair of white TOMS with her wedding dress (so cute!). However, with anything white, they eventually became too dirty to wear. She decided to give them to one of our other family friends, Mary Gregory (check out her blog here) Mary is definately my "other mother" and an incredible and talented artist. Anyway, Meredith gave Mary her pair of TOMS to be painted! I mean, TOMS are canvas right? Check out what she did...


Here are more pairs she's painted...



Amazing right? All you have to do is give/mail Mary your TOMS, and she'll paint them for a very reasonable price! Love it!
