Hello my dear friends and faithful readers, and if you happen to be here for the first time, hello to you too!
Today the sun shines high, and after I've been struggling with headaches over the past week or so, I can tell you today is a grand day! Not only because I eventually feel very well, but also because I found beauty in unexpected ways! I found beauty in my regained well- being, in my hand that allows me to start creating again, in people that were so kind to take time to drop me messages about my Somerset Life features and 'just- because' cheery notes, in strangers that did something kind for me... that filled me with great, deep joy and thankfulness.
Moreover, I found beauty in these pointe shoes I recently acquired... I had been looking for a pair of used ballet shoes forever, so imagine my surprise when browsing Etsy, by chance I found a lovely shop, Danusharose, that carried pointe shoes formerly used in a ballet school!
When I saw these beauties of a soft shade of peach, my heart started to flutter... danced, danced, danced... went pitter- patter... skipped several beats... can you blame me, vintage girls?;)
The shop owner, Danuta, is a delightful lady. She was a ballerina herself, Artistic Director and ballet teacher for 25 years. I found true beauty in this woman and in all of her words to me...
I hung my treasures on my Mothers' chest of drawers, just for fun- so they can get a smile out of you and everyone who passes by!
... "On with the dance! Let joy be unconfined."
