      When my daughter grew up and moved away from home I cried for three weeks. After the three weeks; I would come home from work and I would sit on her bed and mope, looking down at the only thing that away made me smile. Like a faithful puppy! My shoes!

      Then it hit me.. Turn this nice large room into something useful, something that will make you smile and bring you joy..

      The "Shoe Room"

      I called a closet organizing company and we began the process. At that time I had 672 pairs of shoes and they where everywhere, in their boxes but everywhere. My poor husband was fit to be tied. I had given thought over the years how to better protect my babies pass them living in the boxes they come in. We spoke about a few ideas, I did not want the girls living in the garage what kind of Shoe Diva does that?

        • This is too funny! In my Chicago home I had a shoe room also. It was supposed to be our guest bedroom but my shoes are more important! The guests can sleep on the couch! I miss that room so much! We moved to Phoenix 2 years ago & do not have a spare bedroom for now. I only have around 200 pairs of shoes so I can get away with not putting any of them in the garage. Luckily I have enough closet space in this house to use. It is harder to find what I need now though and I can’t wait until we get into our next house which I will make sure has a spare bedroom! (Or I’ll just kick one of my son’s out of the house! LOL!)
