I LOVE all the red!!! The ballet slippers are wonderful!!! Sorry you have to get back to work. No fun in that. I would LOVE to see your Construction Crown though! :0)

Sorry I haven't been able to visit much. Life has taken over my social being.....How dare that happen?

Remember to take a break and smell your flowers in your beautiful garden!

Blessings and Hugs,

Ok...I can't stop staring at those red shoes.

Congrats on Artful Blogging. I wanted to tell you sooner, but I too have an outside "day job" and have been crazy busy, leaving blogland behind.

I VERY MUCH appreciate the comments you have left on my blog...especially coming form you Donna.


I just love the red slippers! Very Dorthy meets the pirate...that could be a cute story line! Saw you article in Artful Blogging....no surprised...your site is a visual fantasyland.


Best wishes to you! (Love the pics you've posted, btw.)

My ballerina daughter (18) was touched by your red toe shoes. A treasure for sure. Can you imagine the beauty created while they were worn? I wonder what the story would say.
G'day day Donna.

Just put on those red shoes, click your heels together and say, "There's no place like my studio." You will be instantly whisked away from work and back to creating all your lovelies! Wish me luck. I just posted my first giveaway! Pop in and take a peek!

My cable is messed up, my heat pump/air conditioner is on the fritz, and you are meandering around in red ballet slippers?! (I'm hearing Lucy and Ethel singing "Friendship"...)

Nancy ~ Fete et Fleur

When I was little I always wanted a pair of red ballet slippers. My mom bought me a pair of red Mary Janes instead. I loved those shoes!! I'm so glad this post made me think of them. I'm going to try and dig them up.

Bummer about the work part. ;{

Hugs! Nancy


I love the way you work !!! Clarice

Miss Maddie's

So I see you have your dancing shoes ready for tonight.And are the red balls to hurl at the TV if the right David doesn't win?
Enjoy your week ahead. Wouldn't that circle of dancing putti look wonderful as a crown???
