Trip the Light Fantastic...

... by definition  'is to dance nimbly or lightly, or to move in a pattern to musical accompaniment'.. which is exactly what Ginger Rogers would do (as she always did) in these dancing shoes

The writing around the sole is one of my favourite quotes: 'Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, except she did it backwards and in high heels'... seemed appropriate.
The shoe is going to the Craft Barn to be used in their new location, shoes have been handed out to be decorated - can't wait to see what everyone else has done.

The shoe is painted with Fresco Finish paints - sole is Elephant - one of the new colours - a lovely grey, flower is made with a leaf stamp from the JOFY range, buttons from my never-decreasing stash (there had to be a button or two didn't there!), and the flourishes are a Spellbinder die (floral flourishes - one of my favourites)



  1. It looks fab - but I am disappointed that you personally won't be tripping the light fantastic in them....I suppose if you only have one you'd have to hop the light fantastic... which may be dangerous!

  2. This is lovely Jo and I love how you added the quote! Jo x

  3. That quote is the perfect finishing touch for your elegant shoe Jo.

  4. Wow! Wow! Wow!! Love what you have done!!!
