I'd say it's a bit odd! hehe Unique tho, I guess... =)

Hootin' Anni said...

Both....cute and eerie. I can say both, right? LOL This is quite clever tho, if you want my opinion.

bluemountainmama said...

that's a little creepy to me.... creative, but creepy! :)

Becca said...

Haha. Kind of eerie, I think. More melancholy than eerie, though. Neat idea.

Gabriel said...

Very creative pictures, no doubt about that. Great post.

Thanks for dropping by, have a great WW!

Creepy.

nikko said...

I don't like it. It reminds me of the holocaust memorial in Washington D.C. with all the shoes. :o(

carrie said...

I'm gonna vote for creepy. Especially the little kid shoes.


happy creepy wednesday!

Well there are a lot of questions and stories spinning around in my head...

Playful Professional said...

This is kind of weird...

Tiff said...

It's a little eery to me!

Hey it's Amy Shipp said...

I think it's cute, it just makes me think the children are grown up & gone away, but you are left with their shoes... but you can still imagine them small- playing & laughing. I like it!

Kristi said...

My instinct is eerie, but I would love to hear the story behind it.

Chris in Oxford said...

It's a little bit of both I think. But I appreciate the idea of reusing things rather than throwing them away!

Mommy Ruby said...

first i thought it was cute....but when i saw the baby shoes...i say it's eerie!

thanks for visiting! happy WW for me it's now Thursday...hehehe

Jackie said...

The little shoes are cute but seeing them all strewn about is a little eerie! Thanks for visiting my blog.

Childlife said...

LOL! A little of both perhaps : D Great set!

K- said...

Odd. Kind of funny. I had no idea that you could grow shoes in the garden. Bet that saves a lot of money.

Sandy Carlson said...

This looks a bit eerie, but I'd say it could be quite lovely! That's an interesting idea. It would be fun to put a child's shoes along the way and show the growth. Magic! God bless.

jams o donnell said...

I agree with others when I think it's cute and eerie. I have seen pics of trees festooned with shoes. Whatever the reason for leaving them I am sure there are dozens of untold stories there. Happy WW

Vixen said...

I think I find it woo eerie to be cute. I think its just the little shoes that freak me out, lol.

Happy WW

Robert said...

That's a first for me. Something you DON'T see everyday. Thanks for sharing it with us.

motherbumper said...

I like it! There was a garden back home that was made of toilets - trust me, this shoe garden is beautiful not eerie (which the toilet garden was).

zamejias said...

Whose idea is this? Heheh.

Bobbie said...

A little of each. Some of those shoes would be cute as real planters, but the way they're scattered is a bit eerie, too. Thanks for visiting The Right Blue

♥Shabem-®♥ said...

Quite interesting and very creepy.
Thanks for dropping by!

Jim said...

Hi JIMG, yes, a little scary. Not the garden but the gardener!
Are there bodies buried somewhere of the poor souls who were once walking on those souls?
One nice thing, it will be easy to change the theme. (Be sure to pick up your shoes.)

Thanks for the nice visit, and Happy WW! :-)

Sandy C. said...

Wow! I've never heard of that....a bit eerie, and creepy. Great shots!

Mimi aka pz5wjj said...

Most definately cool! Love it!

Victoria said...

Both! The adult ones are cool, the kids' ones are a little creepy to me.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Happy WW!!

Heather said...

Different! That's for sure. lol And very creative, too. I like the idea of the shoes growing in the garden best. That would save a TON of money! lol

Thanks for stopping by, and happy WW!

The Lone Beader said...

Hmmm... I dunno. Reminds me of my grandmother. She had old boots on her porch with Chicks'n'hens growing in them...

Jennie said...

creepy... yup...

Natalie said...

I'm gonna have to say eerie!

Regina said...

That is very strange! It seems so wrong!

Serena said...

It looks eerie to the over imaginative minds. :D

I think it is perfect for some creative writing adventure and mystery.

Musimommy said...

I think it is eerie looking now, but would be cute with a nice spring garden!

DoubleDeckerBusGuy said...

Where's the FEET!?!?! WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM!?!?!

Jessica said...

I especially liked the very last photo! Great pictures!

DeLi said...

i like it. not eerie for me. i love walking in places like this

baby~amore' said...

very unique -

Jendi said...

I guess I wouldn't say cute or eerie. I'm sure it looks much nicer in season. I have one pair of my husband's old work boots filled with Hen and Chicks. I've thought about putting plants in cowboy boots.

I have a good life said...

I think it is quite creepy, although the idea of the shoes "growing up." would be pretty cute, I think. As it is...creepy.

Melissa said...

I'm going with creepy. Where did the owners of the shoes go?
