Sure it's just a picture of Polly Pocket shoes but to me it says so much and makes me laugh about so many things. First it exhibits how compulsively organized I can be. We have a huge bin of Polly Pockets but whenever the girls dump them out I go and collect all the little shoes and put them in a special little bag. Not sure it is compulsion or aversion to the kids whining for help finding the matching shoe. It also exhibits that I have a problem with time management that I would take the time to line up, pair up, and stand up all these little shoes. It show how ridiculously many Pollys we have. And it show how insanely sentimental I can be about objects. The single blue lace up shoe came with the first set we ever had. I bought as a first day of preschool present for Alison when she was three - it was a teacher Polly. I remember the silly shoe even thought that was 5 1/2 years ago. :) The little orange roller skate was on a Polly we took on the plane ride to Hawaii when Maya was 18 months. She was so obsessed with the Polly and the skates that she constantly had to know where it was. On the plane she fell asleep holding it tight. I couldn't sleep because I kept waking up worried that one of the skates had fallen off - ha ha ha. So not just a pile of shoes. :)
This is the view from my bed when I wake up in the morning. I really love the beautiful red glow on the trees. :)
I love these little chairs. Love love love. I bought them at TJ Maxx a few years ago. I don't splurge on much but these I couldn't pass up. The character in the middle is xi, which means happiness. Love them!
