Today is my blog post as part of this series, and I am writing about The Netherlands. ¬†I lived there for one year and this blog post is about what I experienced.
This shoe must be for a Dutch Cinderella, why else would it be about 20 inches long?¬†This shoe was made in Best, The Netherlands, the only village that still has shops that make wooden shoes. ¬†It really isn’t a lost Cinderella slipper, but is intended for use as household decor. This would be a great shoe to leave outside the door on St. Nicholas Eve, as it would be filled with good things by morning if you have behaved this past year.
Be sure to check out the rest of the blog hop and visit the many countries over the 32 days of sharing!
