MISSISSIPPI MAGNOLIAS TOMS Custom Hand Painted Canvas Shoes
These were an absolute joy to do! I am from Mississippi and seeing the magnolias bloom were always a delight! Well, actually, not always. See, I loved them so much, and at my grandmoms, she had one of the largest and oldest magnolia trees in town. When it would come into bloom, I was the first one to go out there ready to pick the flowers, trying to sniff all of the beautiful goodness out of them. I would get in so much trouble for it!!! (I mean, mostly it was because those little red seedlings would fall out and would stain my seersucker clothes and I didn't see the big deal in it.)
Oh goodness how I loved that tree! The heavier that the limbs got, the longer they would hang down and the more dangerous it would be to pull in and out of the driveway and no one could see down the street so it became a nouissance, but I still didn't understand the problem. I only ever saw the beauty in that glorious tree. Needless to say, when I was asked to paint a pair of wedding shoes for a bride who was marrying a man from Mississippi and wanted to somehow represent his family and Mississippi ties, I knew exactly what to do!!!
These TOMS have a sketched style of traditional magnolias on the front. One is in full bloom and the other is just coming into bloom with the broad leaves on each side of the flowers. The sides of the shoes have their favorite verses on them and the backs have their names and wedding date in Roman Numerals.
You have the option to customize these below selecting the paint colors and personalizing the text as well. Each part of the text is then accented in glitter and the trims are done in a rich champagne glitter overlay, which you also have the option to change.
