just like a ballerina.

When I was in Sweden last week I found a box at home with my old ballet shoes. I danced ballet from the age of 3 to 15 i think it was. I don't know why my mum didn't throw them away? they're all pretty dirty and worn out. But now I'm quite glad she didn't. I think i'm gonna do something with them. Make them into art in some form. Even though they're not as nice as my latest pair, the only ones I've kept from that time (these)... I love them all. The tiny ones from when I was the shy little three year old that loved her pink tutu skirt more than the dancing to the more dirtier pairs when I was the angry teenager but a passionate dancer.


  1. Oh hun I love old dancing shoes, worn torn ones. I hope you do something with these. Do show us.I danced ballet from age of 7-14 then I moved on to freedance and jazz.

    Hope your stay home was relaxing and enjoyable. I am going mad due to this weather. It feels like October doesn't it? Me and bf fly to Zante on Thursday for a week. I can't wait to feel the sun on my skin.
