{monday inspires....}

la dance....

Do I really need to explain? I can't imagine anyone not finding an element of beauty in the above photos. Today - I am inspired by dance. Actually, this weekend I was. No, I'm not a dancer and especially not a ballerina. Well, not in real life, that is. Because yes, I freely admit that I am a closet ballerina. I have a couple of roommates that can attest to that. My place of preference? The kitchen. It lends itself to such graceful movement. :) But, I'm not here to discuss my pretend dance world (or not entirely at least).

This weekend, I did some organization, moved some furniture (at which I'm quite pleased with), and even shopped for some home stuff. While organizing some boxes, I found a pair of ballet shoes. Not just any pair either...the shoes I wore at our wedding! As I said, no - I'm not a ballerina, nor did I ever take any class as a child. But, I have always had a dear love for the ballet, and particularly the beautify of the shoes. So, I wore ballet shoes and had our little "flower girls" be little "ballerinas". Oh so cute.

Finding these shoes filled me with delight. So, my dear creative friends....any idea of what I can do with these shoes?? I've thought about molding them or keeping them as is and putting them in our little girl's room (whenever we have one). Do you have any ideas?!

Are you inspired by dance?

I'm not exactly sure what you should do with them--but these images are surely inspirational :)

What a lovely post. I love the pic with all the ballet shoes. I wish I still danced. I did it for 12 years. I miss it so.

Have a lovely weekend!
