Take a Word's theme this week is Time.
I've been saving these ballerina elements to use - and found a good theme to pair them, young and old ballerinas.
When I was a young girl I took dance lessons, tap, ballet, acrobat, and hula. All four in the space of an hour once a week, with my best friend, Kathy.
Kathy and I were older than the other students, and while they continued to learn ballet positions and little dances in their ballet slippers, Kathy and I progressed to "toe." I remember my pink silk toe shoes - just like the ones above. And being surprised when I first got them, how "hard as a rock" the toes were. (You have no idea how hard it was to balance on those hard toes at first!) And the beautiful pink ribbons I wrapped around my ankles, just so.
I wish I still had them, just for the memories. :)
Thanks for stopping by. See you next time...
