In these shoes?

Good afternoon, peeps!

Do you remember that song by Kirsty McColl?  It seemed like an appropriate title for this post because I thought I'd give you a close-up of these:


Sheena has a fabulous display for her Pick of the Week (I hope you've been watching!) but these little babies seem to mostly hide behind the caption.

They're made from papier mache under that lovely Pebeo Iridescent Acrylic paint that's part of the set of 40 tubes in that long, long box!

I always think of this type of shoe as geisha shoes but apparently the correct name is 'okobo'.  I'm sorry I can't guide you to a place where you can buy these because I picked them up in a branch of Michael's in San Diego a few years back but these fabulous new stamps from Sheena gave me the perfect opportunity to use them.

Enjoy the shows - I don't think these wonderful collection will last the week so, if you're planning on making a purchase, I should do it soon!

Hugs
