Adventures and inspiration are never far away, especially if you are on foot and take the time to explore.
Helen, my friend visiting from Australia and I spent an afternoon in Old City, Philadelphia. It was there at Three Sirens that we found some far out shoes and and met Aubrie Costello- a "Sole Sister."
Aubrie, it turns out, is not only a super friendly sales clerk, but a wonderful artist. She also, paints shoes and incorporates them in installations. I shared with her my Walks thru Life: Shoe Portraits Series, and she in turn, showed me her work.
One of her pieces, Ladies in Waiting is right behind the register.
