dancer dreams

A rented room with pealing wallpaper and a giant wardrobe and a cozy blanketed bed,
a young male cat, a small little stove with glowing coals and a ragged hooked rug,
ballet shoes scattered around the room and specific pairs hanging on pegs,
a few dreamy and worn novels, long lace curtains and mismatched cushins,
hot tea and bought cookies,painted tins of powders and "paints,"

a cheap silver painted brush and tarnished mirror,
blue satin pointe shoes,
but mostly cluttered with fabric and old costumes to be remade
and thread and buttons and ribbon

How beautiful... I have always wanted to live in a place such as that.

(I was a bit obsessed with French art the other month, so I recognized the Degas painting in this post. That made me happy. It's rather childish, I know. But true!)

Clara said...

sara: thank you my dear. <3 I wish I could go back in time for it too.

Ellie Grace: I'm so glad you can, that's exactly what I hoped for. :)

Little Bear Stories: <3 and thank you so much for following :)

chesca: thank you so much! that's so sweet of you to say, it's so encouraging. :) and thank you for following as well. <3
