Etsy Find of the Day: Wooden Shoe Last

I'm fascinated by these random bits of vintage ephemera. Who did it belong to? What became of him? Did this vintage wooden shoe form from Etsy seller Ursula -- beautiful in its aged, odd way -- spend its nights in a fancy wingtip or a shiny leather spat?

These mysterious relics from other lives and times gone by make great accessories, too. Not only are they conversation pieces, but they add interesting texture to a tabletop or bookshelf assemblage and bring a hint of personality and individuality to your space. I love how Ursula has used her collection of shoe lasts around her own home, for instance, as shown on her blog (above and below).

The shoe form is $15 right here.
