Antique Baby Shoe

I need YOUR help. Someone, somewhere, somehow, has got to have seen this pattern.......I feel it in me bones!
I crocheted a pair of these little shoes more than 10 years ago from an antique pattern.
Do you recognize it?

Starting over.....

....for the 3rd time!
Oh, well, I'd rather get it right anyway. Besides, I'll know the ins and outs of THIS pattern! You can find it [FREE] here: Doily-of-the-Month. This one was the Member's Choice and I've learned...when in doubt....ask on the group because they will help you so you'll only have to attempt to make it Once.
I'm using the color, Pumpkin, and US sz 8 steel hook.

Lost City Denise.... did she DO that?! I ordered some of her precious silk in the Wild Violet colorway, got it today, opened up the package and the fragrance of a field of lavender came out! OMG!
Check out Denise for her scrumptious variety of hand-dyed yarns. I just HAVE to go here and order some of that Lavender!
Stay tuned to see what I will knit from this luscious silk!
Top it off, she's a nice lady!

Another doily completed..

Ahhhh, there's something to be said after you have crocheted a "new" family heirloom. My hope is for this to be passed on from generation to be proudly displayed.
It's interesting to see how everyone else's doily turns out by their color choices, etc.

With crochet thread and hook in hand...stop by and join the Doily A Month group. If you join today, you can vote for one of the choices [in the new poll] for NEXT month's DOM!

Can you identify this motif?

If you can, please tell me where I can find it..........AGAIN!
I can't believe that I sat at my lap top, crocheting it and now I can't remember where I got it!
I would like to crochet a tablecloth from it.
If I don't come across the pattern, I can always dissect it.........but I'd rather some brilliant person [who knows crocheted motifs] tell me where they've seen it.
I think I'm going to cry........
