she eats ballerinas for breakfast


can you imagine a cereal with little ballerinas in it?
it would be strawberry flavoured and you could
crunch the pink tiaras, tutus and shoes.
ballerin-O's

yesterday on my way to ballerina
the tube got stuck right outside
kew gardens. as i sat in the
train car with 2 weird men
i wished i had something
to read or listen to.
i had nothing.
forgot my book
and my ipod ran out.

i got off at the next station
missed ballerina completely
and bought a pale pink copy of W
from a little indian man who told
me that the world doesnt smile
enough.. i agreed. and then
fell in love with this picture
of lara stone wearing a pink
chanel silk and organza cape.

In Sweden we actually have "Ballerina" cookies. It´s a chocolate cookie, and a vanilla cookie with a hole and nougat cream in between, and they are really good. Not as pretty as your ballerina cereal would be though...

That photo is gorgeous! I´m sure you can find beautiful yarn without breaking your piggy bank! Maybe something with angora and alpaca and wool?

This is one of the many reasons I love your blog - Ballerin-O's! I would totally buy a box and eat them for breakfast. Or just pour a bowl and admire them.

I might just settle for some of those Swedish cookies though. :)

Bless you for bringing a dose of girly beauty into my life! :-D

I bet you could make something very similar to it. You do a great job at cool sweaters. I love your snake sweater.

a mouse said...
