there should always be dancing

I have danced since I was very little: first ballet, and then when it became too much for my feet, flamenco. These days I don't dance much at all (except for the odd salsa night) and I miss it a lot. So I fixed up an old pair of shoes for dancing to wear when I presented my Spring06 collection. They are 'character' (heeled) shoes, and they are tiny--around a size 5 US. But if you know a young girl who has small feet and likes to dance or dress up, leave a comment. I'll draw a name tomorrow and send them to you.

Thank you again for all your comments. Poetry tomorrow.

EDIT: shoes to Sarah. Email me your address, please!

They are beautiful! I have a sweet little girl who would love them.

So sorry if I have posted too many times the word verification didn't seem to working.

Thank you

I have a little four year old who LOVES to dance, but I'm afraid they wouldn't fit her for quite a few years. But wow, they're so fun! love them....I think we need a little more dancing around here, too....

Put my girl Lola's name in your hat. She would love to have your shoes (the one's that inspired the dancing shoes I made for her). A girl can never have too many dancing shoes. Don't you agree?

Also, I wanted to say thank you for the pieces of your studio that you sent my way. The box remained unopened for awhile languishing in the piles that are slowly taking over my house. It's open now though and I'm relishing the old magazines/patterns most. All if it is lovely though.

I hope your move to France goes smoothly. I wish you a hearty Minnesotan "bon voyage!" Safe travels. Safe return.

Be well,

Those are so pretty! I wish that I could fit them, I'd love to dance around in them if I could actually dance well.

I do know someone who loves to dance who could fit them though.
